Lord for a new day I give you thanks – for who you are I give you praise – for you are the one true God and there is no other and in you do I trust and rest and hope – Amen – Father, as I go through this day may I walk with my eyes on Jesus, following in the footsteps of my Savior in obeying you in my thinking and my speaking and my doing. Forgive me of my sin, cleanse me of all unrighteousness, create in me a clean heart O Lord and renew a right spirit within me. Restore to me the joy of your salvation. Lord, help me to help others by: imitating Christ, treating them as I would want them to treat me, loving them by sharing the good news of Jesus by my life, and if necessary to use words. Fill me with your Holy Spirit fresh and new this morning and dress me in the armor of the Spirit with the helmet of salvation, the breastplate of righteousness, the shield of faith, the sword of the Spirit, the belt of truth, and the feet shod with the readiness of the Gospel of peace and praying always in the blessed Holy Spirit. Lord help me, none of this can I do on my own, may I walk in the light today as Christ is in the light and be a light to others because of Christ in me. Amen.
