Dear Lord, I acknowledge and confess my guilt, in the weak and imperfect performance of the duties of this day. I have called on thee for pardon and forgiveness of sins, but so coldly and carelessly, that my prayers are become my sin and stand in need of pardon. Cleanse the thoughts of my heart by the inspiration of Your Holy Spirit, that I may perfectly love You and worthily praise Your holy name.
Lead me today as You see best. Use the gifts You've given me to encourage others on their journey. Help me not to compare myself with others but to be content.
And now let me go forth praising You, O Lord, with all my heart, telling of all yYur wonders, with my words and in my actions. I will be glad and rejoice in you this day. I will sing praise to Your name, O Most High.
