This is a prayer that I have used from time to time when I first get up in the morning. I have been unable to identify its source to give credit.
God of my life, I welcome this new day. It is Your gift to me, a new creation, a promise of resurrection.
Dear Lord, I thank You for the grace of being alive this morning; I thank You for the sleep that has refreshed me, I thank You for the chance to make a new beginning.
Dear Lord, I give You my hands to do Your work; I give You my feet to go Your way; I give You my eyes to see as You see; I give You my tongue to speak Your words; I give You my mind that You may think in me; I give You my spirit that You may pray in me. Above all, I give You my heart that You may love in me–love the Father and love all humankind. I give You my whole self, Lord, that You may grow in me, so that it is You who lives, works, and prays in me. Amen.
