As I wake at the start of this day, Lord,
That’s unblemished, fresh and new,
May Your Holy Spirit be my Guide,
That I may honour You.
Help me to show compassion
And love to those I meet,
To be patient, kind and gentle,
Encouraging and discreet.
Help me stay in close communion
With You throughout this day,
May my attitude be one of praise,
May I listen when I pray!
Forgive me, Lord, for mistakes I make
And when this day is through,
Help me to leave all my concerns
At the cross, O Lord, with You.

Psalm 25:4-5 NIV
Show me your ways, O Lord, teach me your paths;
guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Saviour,
and my hope is in you all day long.
