Take the opportunity to begin and end your day in prayer, remaining attentive to God’s gifts in your life.
Morning God of wisdom, as I go forth this day, show me how to testify to your grace and truth. Give me the chance to speak and the words to say so that I may glorify your name; through Jesus Christ the Lord. Amen.
Evening I give you thanks, Holy God, that you have made me your own, a treasured possession. Hold me close to your heart and bear me up on eagle’s wings; in Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
