I ask that this day might provide enough mercy
So that all that happened yesterday
And its reminders today will find perspective
Awakening to the word that “God is one”
That as I listen to his voice, peace will come.
I pray that I will know the blessing of enough
Enough to meet my daily needs, today
Enough time spent with family, in laughter
Enough shared meals, so I know I am home.
I pray that I will know the blessing of peace
Peace despite all my doubts,
Peace when the world rushes over my soul
Peace when I want to be alone,
I pray that I will know the blessing of trust
Trust when I can’t see what to trust in
Trust in the uncertainty of tomorrow
Trust that now you are with me.
Lord I ask for mercy today
I pray for blessing on this day as it arrives
You are my God, the one that I turn to
I ask that you bless this day with peace.
