Dear Lord, thank you for the night’s rest you so graciously gave me.
I am grateful for renewed energy and enthusiasm.
I accept this new day as a wonderful opportunity.
May I use it minute by minute to do your will.
Guide me in every problem, every decision I shall make this day.
Help me to treat everyone kindly and to be fair and just and thoughtful in everything today.
And if I should forget you during this day, oh Lord, please do not forget me. Amen.
Norman Vincent Peale
