Alert

Dear God,

Thank You for the alert feeling that I have this morning.  I have good energy, resulting from a good night’s sleep.  Help me to do something with this day that brings about good.

So often I am too sleepy in the morning, and, thankfully, that sedation is gone today.  Help me to make the most of a good day.

Thank You for guiding my choices.

Amen.

God’s Presence

Dear God,

I am alert this morning, unlike many mornings when it takes me a while to get started.  Keep me serene but energized today.  Stay with me while I do my writing.

My awareness of Your presence makes all the difference.  It is good to know that You are always near, nearer than my breath.  This knowledge will keep me serene.

Thank You.

Amen.
