Morning verses

Thank you God, for giving me another day of life (this morning’s short prayer)


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

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.

I wish to have a clear focus and purpose: a short morning prayer


Good morning, God!

Thank you for this new day.

I am thankful for my life, my health and my family’s good health,

the roof over my head and the comfortable couch I am sitting on as I write this…


Today I ask for your help in:

keeping me focused on what is important,

sending love and encouragement to those who may feel down,

and to not let me get too scattered in my thinking and activities.

I wish to be of service.

I wish to have a clear focus and purpose.

I wish for peace.

Thank you.


Every individual has a place to fill in the world and is important in some respect whether he chooses to be so or not. ~ Nathaniel Hawthorne

Dear God,

Thank you for this new day. I am doing my best, but sometimes I grow tired. Please help me maintain a fresh and optimistic vision. May I persist through what sometimes appears to be a forest too thick to navigate through.

I know there is a clearing somewhere, God. Please help me find the way…

Bee and purple lotus

Dear God,

In the early morning light,

in the quiet of the dawn…

All things feel possible!


Gratitude in abundance.


As the day wears on, may I not become weary.

I pray that I remain thankful and aware of the possibilities

that are there so long as I continue

to see them.

Thank you.
