A Brand New Day

prayer for today

Father,

Thank you for today! I wake up and I’m alive. You have been faithful to see me through the night, and you have created a brand new day.

Your faithful love never ends, and your mercies never cease. Great is your faithfulness, for your mercies begin afresh every morning (Lamentations 3:22-23).

Guide me by your hand, and order my steps, so that I can marvel at your goodness. Your works are wonderful to me. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well (Psalm 139:14).

Help me to enjoy my day with you. Show me what you see, and speak to me about the way you see things. Let me hear your voice, and feel the closeness of your presence. Bring to my mind, what is important for me to know, and let my soul relax and be refreshed in your presence.

Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. Point out anything in me that offends you, and lead me along the path of everlasting life (Psalm 139:23-24).

You are the Mighty Warrior who saves me. You take great delight in me, your love calms all my fears, and you rejoice over me with singing (Zephaniah 3:17). You are everything I need in a compassionate and caring Father. Thank you for sending your Son, Jesus, to restore me into right relationship with you.

You’re a good, good Father!

Amen.
