A PRAYER TO START THE DAY "Thank you, Lord, for this new day.
Give me wisdom to see its possibilities and opportunities;
Give me strength to face its challenges;
Take from me any lethargy or laziness and give me a heart of love
to do a favour, speak a kindness, offer a hand, soothe a hurt, celebrate a joy,
share a sorrow or in some small way give myself in love to another in your Name.
This I pray through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen."
Adapted from a prayer by Michael Revell
