We have a tendency to take it for granted that we are alive for one more day. But always understand that it is only because of the creator of this world. This prayer is short and sweet and it goes like this:
Just for today, help me, God, to remember that my life is a gift, that my health is a blessing, that this new day is filled with awesome potential, that I have the capacity to bring something wholly new and unique and good into this world.
Just for today, help me, God, to remember to be kind and patient to the people who love me, and to those who work with me too. Teach me to see all the beauty that I so often ignore, and to listen to the silent longing of my own soul.
In the precious, everlasting Name of Jesus I pray, Amen!
