Now commit your day to the Lord with this simple prayer...  


Lord God Almighty and everlasting Father, You have brought me in safety to this new day: Preserve me with Your power that I may not fall into sin or be overcome by adversity, and in all I do direct me to the fulfilling of Your purpose, through Jesus Christ, my Lord. Amen.

(adapted from the Book of Common Prayer)


This concludes the MORNING Pause for Prayer.  Don't forget to take a moment in the middle of the day to return for another Pause for Prayer!
