Dear Lord, may every day bring new chances to grow, new beautiful things to see, new plans to do, and new goals to pursue. As every new day is Your miracle day. Guide us throughout the week as we start another journey.
If things get tough today, Lord — and in all hard times — let me stay motivated and calm. Let me look at how far I have come rather than how far I still have to go. Let me continue counting my blessings, not what I've been missing.
I pray that I and Your whole church, the body of all faithful people, will know your peace, and live in harmony and unity, one with another, in accordance with your wishes. Grant that I might never feel lonely in my faith; and help me to let others feel the comfort of Christian community. This I pray to you, who lives and reigns forever.
