Morning verses

Thank you for this new day: a short morning prayer


Dear God,

Thank you for this new day. Thank you for my health, the inspiration I am enjoying to do purposeful work, and the opportunity to learn and grow.

If ever I lose sight of what is truly important, I will do my best to remember this morning and the new clean slate it represents.

Thank you for the freedom that I enjoy: a short morning prayer


Dear God,

On this Monday morning I would like to take a moment to just be with you. The house is quiet. My body and my mind are well rested.

I am thankful for this new day and start of a fresh work week.

Thank you for the freedom that I enjoy. I am blessed to be free to live where I want, live with whom I want, do what I want for work, and free to spend my leisure time as I wish.

As I go about my day today and throughout the rest of the week, please help me and guide me to stay focused and to not take any of these freedoms which I enjoy for granted.

Dear God,

Good morning! Thank you for this new day. May I finish things I’ve started, let go of things that are already finished or no longer need my attention, and be mindful of what really matters to me.

I am excited about serving others and learning new things. Thank you God, for giving me another day of life.

To Step Back and Realize How Blessed I Am… today’s short morning prayer


Dear God,

As I awaken to the possibilities of this new day,

I feel thankful for another day of life,

a chance to be creative or rest (whichever one I choose)…

time with my family and friends,

and a day to step back and realize how blessed I am.

Thank you.

Gentle day, Autumn day

Gentle day,

Autumn day…

Softly passing the time away.

Simple moments,

nothing flashy.

Just calm elegance

of sunny warmth,

crisp breezes,


relaxed and bathing

in your perfect moment.


It was one of those perfect English autumnal days which occur more frequently in memory than in life. The rich colours of grass and earth were intensified by the mellow light of a sun almost warm enough for spring… ~P.D. James

A short morning prayer for this Monday morning


Dear God,

Thank you for this new day. I am going to do my best today to be kind and loving by:

1. listening more, and talking less

2. when I do talk, choose my words carefully,

3. and smile as often as I can.

Thank you for my health, this new day, and all of my many blessings.
