Dear Lord,

You’ve given me the gift of a new day. But it’s not just the fact that I’m alive. It’s what You have given me so I can fully live another day of life. So let me start with Your unconditional love – help me embrace it. The gifts You have given me – help me use them. The unique purpose You have entrusted to me – help me live with significance. And the opportunities I will have to make a difference for Jesus – help me succeed with each one of them.

It’s really not all that complicated, Lord. I want the simple joy of knowing I have lived as You      want me to.

In Jesus’ name.

Amen.
