Prayers to start the day – for kids, for adults

FOR KIDS
“A Prayer to Start the Day”
Thank you, Lord, for this brand-new day.
Keep me safe, keep me strong, I pray.
Guide my actions, shape my thoughts, tell me what to say.
Help me to follow your good, pure way. Amen.

FOR ADULTS
“A Morning Prayer”
Dear Lord,
As this day begins I confess that I will need you every moment.
I long to know you more deeply today.
Help me in what I say to other people.
Give me wisdom for each decision I will make.
Make love and truth the motives behind everything I do.
And when I fall short, help me not to give up,
but to find an extra measure of your strength.
This day is your creation and your gift.
I commit my body and spirit to your good purposes. 
In Jesus’ name, Amen.

  1. I wish I’d read this this morning but I have put down in my notes then I will read this every morning from now on I have been in tears literally most of the evening about Jesus passion on the cross for me and I do have a question what is the difference between my soul and my spirit I wants heard that I have a body and I am a spear a soul but what about the spirit in my spirit or soul I would appreciate so much your answering these questions I know it takes time you probably don’t have it in your good timing would you please answer these questions for me God bless you in other words I am a soul and am I simultaneously a spirit what is the difference?
