The Gate


A Morning Prayer

O Lord, as I cross the threshold of this day
I commit myself, soul, body, affairs, and friends to Thy care.
Watch over, keep, guide, sanctify and bless me.
Let those around me see me
living by Thy Spirit,
transformed by a renewed mind,
clad in the whole armor of God,
showing holiness in all my doings.
May I speak each word as if my last word,
and walk each step as my final one.
If my life should end today, let this be my best day.
In the name of our Lord Jesus I pray–
