A Prayer to Begin the Day

“O God, most holy, wise, and powerful Preserver and Governor of all Thy creatures and all their actions: Keep us this day in health of body and soundness of mind, in purity of heart and cheerfulness of spirit, in contentment with our lot and charity with our neighbor; and further all our lawful undertakings with Thy blessing. In our labor strengthen us; in our perils defend us; in our troubles comfort us: and supply all our needs according to the riches of Thy grace in Christ Jesus our Lord. Amen.”

The Book of Common Worship (1946)
