Philip Kosloski - published on 01/26/21

Start off the day basking in the warmth of God's love.

One of the most important parts of the day is the morning, as it sets the tone for the rest of the day. Often if you want to have a good day, it starts with your attitude in the morning.

Praying in the morning can be a perfect opportunity to set the stage for a fruitful day.

Here is a prayer adapted from a 19th-century prayer book entitled Morning Prayers that focuses on the great love God has for you.

I give you thanks for all your benefits, particularly for having brought me to the beginning of this day, for having thought of and loved me from all eternity, for having made me out of nothing, preserved me from innumerable evils and borne with me in my sins, for having redeemed me by the death of your only Son, called me to the true Church, favored me with your graces and inspirations, watched over me night and day, appointed your angels to guard me and prepared a happy eternity for me.
