Morning Offering at Brady’s School

September 5, 2012

Brady started Kindergarten two weeks ago.  At the parent night, they gave us a copy of the school’s morning offering.  I absolutely love the words of this prayer! 

Heavenly Father, 
I praise you and thank you for your great love, 
And I lift up this day for your blessing. 
With your help, I will live today as a 
responsible, generous, and honest person.  
Like Jesus, I will try to respect everyone I meet
with dignity and respect. 
With Jesus’ spirit alive in me, 
I will witness my love 
by thinking of others first
and myself last. 
Help me today, Father, 
to put into action, 
what I have said in these words.
I ask this in Jesus’ name.
