Morning Prayer #2: Thank You For Today

Today was not guaranteed to me, Lord, but you have given it anyway.
You’ve given me another sunrise.
You’ve given me an extra morning hug.

You’ve given me one more morning coffee.
I did nothing to earn today, nor to deserve it.
This day is a blessing from you, and I will live it as such.

And so…

I thank you for my alarm clock that got me up today.
I thank you for the commute time I can use to listen to your word on tape.
I thank you for my workday, regardless of how it goes.

I thank you for the things you may show me today.
May you open my eyes so that I see them fully.

Thanks again for coffee.
