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 You.

I pray that I may hand over all the duties of the day into Your hands, so that Your hand is leading and guiding in all the decisions that I make. Enable me to approach the 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 and keep me from foolish words. 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,
