We bless You, our Father in heaven, that You have kept us through another night, in which You have given rest and sleep.  We rejoice that You have brought us to behold the light of another day, with its duties and privileges. We thank You that our lives have been precious in Your sight. And now we pray for Your guidance throughout this day to which Your mercy has brought us. Give us today our daily bread. Forgive our sins. Help us to forgive those who wrong us. We invoke Your blessing in its fullness upon our loved ones, whether they kneel with us here this morning, or are far from us. You are near to all. Keep us O God, from sickness, from danger, and from sin. May the consciousness of Your love go with us, and Your presence guide us through this day. We ask not that we may walk in our own way, but in Your way. Help us to do Your will this day. May we labor to be accepted in the Beloved, whose we are and whom we serve. For Jesus sake. Amen!
