 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."
