Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for this day, Help me to follow You in every way. Let me speak as You speak, and do as You do; let me help others, as You help them, too.
Help keep me busy, to strive for the best. Help me not to be lazy, but find needed rest. Let me come to You, Father, throughout the day, often to thank You, often to pray.
Support me all the day long of this troublous life, until the shadows lengthen and the evening comes, and the busy world is hushed, and the fever of life is over and my work is done. Then of Thy mercy, grant me a safe lodging, and a holy rest and a peace at last through Jesus Christ, our Lord.
