Bless You, my Father!

LORD, God, my Father, it is a joyous day and I start it with a prayer of thanksgiving to You. Remind me to start each day with a prayer for Your protection.

Shield me from misfortune and from those who look to hurt me unless it serves Your purpose for me otherwise.

I am Your devoted child who finds purpose in serving You. Here I am, Lord! Ready to be made an instrument of Your peace if it is Your will to clear the way. Put me in, Coach, in Jesus’ strong and holy name. Amen.
