I read this this morning and decided that I should really pray this way every morning before I start teaching my children.  This prayer has been attributed to a couple of people so I’m not sure to whom actual credit goes but seeing that he was a humble man, whomever he was, I’m guessing he would just praise God that others have been blessed by it even if they can’t give proper credit.

O Lord, grant that I may meet all that this coming day brings to me with spiritual tranquility. Grant that I may fully surrender myself to Thy holy Will.

At every hour of this day, direct and support me in all things. Whatsoever news may reach me in the course of the day, teach me to accept it with a calm soul and the firm conviction that all is subject to Thy holy Will.

Direct my thoughts and feelings in all my words and actions. In all unexpected occurrences, do not let me forget that all is sent down from Thee.

Grant that I may deal straightforwardly and wisely with every member of my family, neither embarrassing nor saddening anyone.

O Lord, grant me the strength to endure the fatigue of the coming day and all the events that take place during it. Direct my will and teach me to pray, to believe, to hope, to be patient, to forgive, and to love. Amen.

  1. A prayer I needed to hear as well. Yes, I still peek in and yes, I still think of you and pray for you!

  2. And you know what I’m learning? God is honoring these prayers. We are starting each day with prayer. We all go around and pray that God will help us with our attitudes before we start the school day. God is good.

  3. This really resonated with me. Thank you for posting this. It was truly God’s timing!

    Do you know of a blog or website that supports pastor’s wives? I could really use a support system.
