Dear Heavenly Father, I bless You for the day that You have made. Let me spend this day rejoicing in Your creation. Fill me with the joy of my salvation, so that Your light may shine through me into the world
Let Your honor and glory may be known to all people. Let me follow Your example to never inflate myself with pride of status, of opinion, or of any of the gifts You have bestowed upon me. Let me welcome good advice and sound rebuke, without defensiveness.
Grant me always to praise rather than criticize, sympathize rather than discourage, build rather than destroy. Help us to remember that we are all Your beloved children. Let my hope and glory be ever in you, and not in my own vanity.
