For this day, O God,
May I be alert, kind, compassionate.
May I be authentic, generous, forgiving.
May I be honest, brave, open.
May I be creative, strong, forgiving (again).
May I live from my intentions,
not simply my habits.
May I hold close in prayer the people
you bring to my heart and mind right now.
May I focus, may I trust,
and, above all,
may I be yours.
May it be so.
