Dear Heavenly Father, I thank You for this new day and pray that You will watch over me. May my thoughts, my words and actions reflect the Spirit that dwells within me. And may every minute of my life celebrate the gift of grace, earned by the blood of Christ.
Thank You for using others to speak words of encouragement and challenge to me. Help me to be wise in how and when my words or my silence may be helpful to someone else. May my words, too, be a blessing to others.
I dedicate this day to You, mighty God. I pray that Your Spirit will lift me up this day. And, that Your face may shine upon me all the day long, that I might do Your will and lead a new life in Christ, reborn in the Spirit.
