May all I do today begin with you, O Lord.
Plant dreams and hopes within my soul,
revive my tired spirit:
be with me today.

May all I do today continue with your help, O Lord.
Be at my side and walk with me:
Be my support today.

May all I do today reach far and wide, O Lord.
My thoughts, my work, my life:
make them blessings for your kingdom;
let them go beyond today,

O God Today is new unlike any other day,
for God makes each day different.
Today God's everyday grace falls on my soul like abundant seed,
though I may hardly see it.

Today is one of those days Jesus promised to be with me,
a companion on my journey,
And my life today, if I trust him,
has consequences unseen.
My life has a purpose.

"I have a mission...
"I am a link in a chain,
a bond of connection between persons.
God has not created me for naught...
Therefore I will trust him.
Whatever, wherever I am, I can never be thrown away.
God does nothing in vain.

"He knows what he is about."

(Author: J. H. Newman)
