Strength To Live A Life Pleasing To God

Help me, Lord, to wake each morning with the eyes of my heart looking to Jesus and the thoughts of my mind focused on Him.

I pray that I may hand over all the duties of the day into Your hands so that Your hand is leading and guiding me in all the decision that I make.

Enable me to approach this day with an eagerness to do those things that are pleasing to You, a willingness to tackle the difficulties that may cross my path today and wisdom to speak the truth in love.

Give me patience with all I may meet today, keep me from foolish words, and may I exhibit self-control and wisdom in all the necessities and needs that I may encounter as the day progresses.

And keep me in perfect peace throughout today as my mind is kept stayed on You. I ask this in Jesus' name,
