morning prayer :: 3

From the Book of Common Prayer, “Forms of Prayer to Be Used in Families”

Thanksgiving for the gift of another day

We give thee hearty thanks, O heavenly Father, for the rest of the past night, and for the gift of a new day. Grant that we may so pass its hours in the perfect freedom of thy service, that at eventide we may again give thanks unto thee; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
