A Prayer To Start The Day!




Lord,
You Have Awakened Me
From A Peaceful Night's Sleep!
Through The Dark Night
My Soul, You Did Keep!
Now That I Rise
To Face The Unknown Day
I Pray You, Please
Keep Me
Lead Me Safely Along 
The Straight And Narrow Way
So That I
From Your Side
Will Not Ever Look To Stray!


I Thank You, Lord
For The Good Things I Will Receive!
I Thank You For Teaching Me
So Satan Can't Me Deceive!
I Thank You For The Gifts
Of
Dear Mercy

And
Blessed Grace
And
I Thank You, Lord
For The Promise
That Gives Me Faith's Look
Upon My Beloved Savior's Face!


Father,
Forgive Me
For The Mistakes Of Yesterday!
Forgive Me For Any Unkind Words Spoken
That My Brethren May Have Heard Me Say!
Forgive Me, Lord
And
Correct Me
If I
To Any Fellow
Display An Uncaring Attitude
And
Help Me To Display Good Fruit
For In Christ I Know
My Tree Has Good Roots!


Help Me, Dear Lord
Not To Covet
What Another Person Has!
Help Me To Be Ever Content
To Dwell Within My Savior's Love
For He Who Saves
Feeds
Helps
Shelters And Protects
And
Provides For Daily Needs
Including
Necessary Shoes And Clothes!
Lord,
Help Over Mere Things Not To Fret!


Help Me, Lord
To Appreciate Your Artist's Hand!
Help Me To Appreciate
The Visible Proofs Of Your Blessings
No Matter Where
- House, Hovel
Cave, Street Corner, Barn -
I May Find Myself
If I Become A Victim
Of A Cruel Circumstance!
Lord, I Trust You!

Help Me, Lord
Not To Credit My Eye
My Feelings
Nor The Noise Of The Clamoring World
But Help Me To Continue 
To Faithfully Trust
In The Living Word
Of
The Giving God
So That I May Reach The End Of My Life
- Or The End Of Fleeting Time -
Anchored By Ever-Increasing Faith
So That I May Gain
Your Precious
And
Great
And
Unthought-Of Reward!


Oh, Father!
My Father!
Keep Me Faithful
For I Am Truly Blessed!
Help Me Not To Lean
To The Fallen-Away Left
And
Help To Walk
Upward
And
Onward, Lord
Depending On You
Who - Alone -
Is Faithful, Kind, Comforting
And
Ever True!

Thank You For Listening, Lord!

Keep Me Talking To You!
Keep Me Listening To 
And
Obeying You
And
Help Me To Hold Fast Unto You
For

I Do Indeed Love You!

Remember The Faithful!
Humble The Proud!
Lift Up The Fallen!
And
Bless All Who Are Looking For
The Real Lord Christ's True Transport Cloud
With Overcomer's Eyesight
And
Endurance!

I Pray All In The Name
Of
Jesus Christ The Righteous!
Have Mercy, Lord!
AMEN.
