Strengthen me this day O Lord , for all that lies ahead. Keep me in Your care always and grant my daily bread. Instruct me in Your paths as I put my trust in You. Show Your love, through all I say and everything I do. Forgive me in Your mercy whenever I am wrong. Wash my heart of sin and guilt and make my spirit strong. Make me glad to lend my hands to all who are in need. Help me to relieve their pain, and may they soon be freed. I offer You my thanks, dear God, for all You’ve done for me. Hear my prayers and raise me up to closer with You be.
