Prayer for a New Day

I’ve recently discovered this prayer by Marianne Williamson and I have found it to be a helpful prayer to start my morning in the church office. I'm passing it on to you as we begin again, new and fresh, each day. God’s mercy is close to you. – Reverend Jes Kast-Keat

Dear God,
Thank you for this new day, its beauty and its light.
Thank you for my chance to begin again.
Free me from the limitations of yesterday.
Today may I be reborn.
May I become fully a reflection of Your radiance.
Give me strength and compassion and courage and wisdom.
Show me the light in myself and others.
May I recognize the good that is available everywhere.
May I be, this day, and instrument of love and healing.
Lead me to gentle pastures.
Give me deep peace that I might serve You most deeply. Amen
