Prayer for a New Day

???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????Father.  Jesus.  Spirit.

Help me to spend this day knowing that it is not mine.

Instead, help me to know that You created this day
and You gave it to me as a gift to enjoy,
appreciate and to spend well.
This day belongs to You.

At each point in this new day when I am too busy,
too distracted, too broken or too tired
to find You on my own,
please break through my world
and into my conscious awareness.

Make Yourself known to me
in the ordinariness of my day.

By Your grace give me eyes to see You
when You come to me.
Give me ears to hear You when You speak to me.
Give me a heart to receive Your love
and Your kind presence.

And as You are known to me,
give me an extra measure of Your grace
so that I may make You known to others
in this new day that You have given to me.

This day belongs to You.
