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.
