Morning

Lord, when I awaken to the dawn
__of a freshly scrubbed day,
__I recognize my potential
__for good or evil.
Help me not to lose
__the opportunities
__You so graciously offer.
Give me strength to exploit each one
__for Your glory,
__and a heart willing to do so.
I am weak and sinful;
__all too readily I turn
__from You and my neighbor
__to self interest.
Forgive me, therefore,
__and scrub me clean!
Make my heart fit
__to pursue Your concerns
__and to walk with You
__throughout this day.
_______________In Jesus name,
__________________Amen.
