O God at the beginning of this day, I turn to you……To You I commit my self and all that is mine / Protect me from all dangers / strengthen me against temptations / and keep me free from all evils / Accept the offering of my thoughts, words and deeds.
O Lord, bless my parents, and my family, my friends and my enemies / Fill the leaders of the nations with wisdom and courage / religious men and women with devotion / mother with unstinted love / Give a sense of duty to officials / a sense of justice to business people / a high conscience to professionals / Bless the farmers with abundant harvests. Heal the sick / take care of orphans / do justice to the oppressed / take special care of students and children/that they may grow in strength, wisdom and grace.
Give us understanding, sympathy and love for one another / since we are all children of our Father in Heaven.
Our Father Who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name;
Thy kingdom come;
Thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread;
and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation
but deliver us from evil.
Eternal God, Creator of all / I firmly believe that I am in Your presence / I adore Your Divine Majesty / and I ask of you to enlighten my mind / that I may know you more clearly / and move my heart / that I may love you above all things and my neighbor for Your sake.
Help me / that I may never / in thought word or deed / offend against Your Holy Law.
Heavenly Father, I thank you with my heart's love for your wonderful blessings. I thank you for life, health and protection from harm. I thank you for all the good things and the happiness that have come to me through my home, parents, my teachers, my class mates and all those who love and care for me.
I am truly sorry that I so often take these blessings as though they were due to me. And I am most sorry for the times I have offended you because you are so good want to love and please you. Please give me the courage and the strength I need. Dear God be with us on our way home. Amen.
