Morning Prayer

Discover the Skills or Qualities You are Blessed With

Morning Prayer

There is a calmness
When we learn to let go,
Accept our lot in life
And put God in control.

This day with You Lord,
We put You in full control
For You are big enough
To always protect our soul.

There is strength
In Your promise
Of an eternal future;
Giving us a calmness.

Our greatest strength
Is in being who we are;
Your precious child
Not some real big star.

Because of being Your child,
We have unlimited potential.
So use us each amazing day
To be someone influential.

We go to You in prayer
Even in our imperfections
As we seek to serve You
By following Your direction.

Use our strengths
In our vocation
And everyday tasks
To build a better nation.

You know the strengths
To the world we can bring
So help us follow Your Way
And to You always sing.

About Mark Shields

Mark volunteers as a member of the media ministry team at his church. A few years ago, he started an on-line Bible study guide called “This Day with God Devotional”. He uses this as a tool in his journey through the Bible. We live in a very busy world with busy schedules so this tool has helped him continue with daily Bible reading and study. Each of the studies are designed to help apply our faith in the work place, at school, or at home. Join him on this journey or check in every so often to read his thoughts.
