A prayer at the beginning of each day

I stand before you today, Lord, ready for the challenges that this day will bring.
Help me to keep the spirit of your word alive in my heart and to remember that you are always with me, at home or at work, amongst strangers or friends, faced with struggles or joys.
Be with me, Lord and guide me, wherever I may go.
Give me the courage to be open and responsive to the call of serving all your people. Amen.
