Prayer that every action we do begins and ends with God

Philip Kosloski - published on 10/31/21

Ask God to help you perform every action with God in mind.

Everything we do, whether it is waking up in the morning or watching television, can be sanctified and given to God. This is something that God desires for us, that we always keep him in mind, no matter what we do.

Here is a short prayer that asks God for help in this regard, seeking his grace in starting and ending everything in him.

Direct, we beg you, O Lord, our actions by your holy inspirations, and carry them on by your gracious assistance, that every prayer and work of ours may begin always with you, and through you be happily ended.
