Morning Prayer

I thank you for this new day and for the sleep that I had

I thank you for the clouds in the sky and the birds in the trees

I thank you for the health and happiness of my family and I pledge to do my very best to be a good husband and father 

I pray for the strength and the insight to follow your will, so that my actions may be guided by care and compassion, and that I may overcome my ego and set aside resentments and fear

I humbly ask for your guidance in my decisions, so that I may be able to provide for my family and share with those who are in need or dear to me

I thank for this new day and I will use it to the best of my abilities
