How we begin our days at our "homeschool"…

by Edie Wadsworth on August 26, 2008

The Lutheran Book of Prayer is a great resource.    Pages and pages of prayers for every possible occasion including the ones we use everyday which are the prayers for morning and evening.   Here’s today’s prayer taken from page 32- the Tuesday morning prayer-2nd week:
Again, O Heavenly Father, You have granted me strength to rise to the tasks of the day.   I thank You for Your mercy and love.   Without Your power upholding me I should be unable to live.   Give me a spirit of gratitude for all Your gifts.   Above all, dear Father, keep me grateful for the gift of forgiveness of all my sins through the merits of Jesus Christ, Your Son and my Savior.   Grant that whatever need, whatever sorrow beset my day, my faith in this forgiveness may remain steadfast and firm.   Let no grief of pain, no doubt or gloom,  come between me and the certainty of Your love.   If  it is Your purpose to try me this day with difficulties for the body or the heart,  grant that I may, by Your spirit,  conquer in this trial and hold fast to Your mercy,  knowing that the sufferings of this time are not worthy to be compared with the glory You have in store for me.  Make Your Word my joy,  Your counsel my guide,  Your presence my peace;  in Jesus Christ.   Amen

It’s awesome. I think you’d love it. Still haven’t gotten around to the clipboards yet!

Be sure to get the 1951 version. Other editions of the book have changed the words and they are not nearly as good.
