Dear Lord,

I thank You for Your Love

for me and for seeing

beyond my faults and

weaknesses.  Help me to

be slow to speak and

quick to listen. Help me to

show to others, the same

grace, compassion and

mercy You show to me.

Help me to love with Your

love and be a source of

encouragement to all

around me.  I commit

this day to You and all that’s in it.

In Jesus’ name

I ask these things. Amen.
