God of all mercy, thank you for a new day. My heart is glad, encouraged, and refocused. I love to come to your sanctuary, and I love to sing your praises amidst those who respect you, and to earnestly learn from you the ways of salvation and wisdom, and to grow in grace and in Christ the king. Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on me a sinner. Be my guide and my light, that I may also shine, as I strive to live according to your holy teachings. Lord, I love your lessons of love, but sometimes I get distracted. Change me, and give me the enthusiasm I need to receive your instruction, and to practice it, so that my training may be satisfactory and useful to you, Lord, as I make myself available to service, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, One God now and forever. Amen.
