As I rise from my sleep,

I thank you lord for protecting me.

On this morning to you I pray,

And thank you for giving me a brand new day.

Thank you for giving me breath to breathe,

And for keeping the devil away from my dreams.

So as I stretch and open my eyes,

I prepare to follow for you are my guide.

Your concern for me, you will never sever,

Because you promised your faithful love continues forever.

I may not know what this day will bring,

But I ask that you continue to keep me safe in the shadow of your wings.

 In Jesus name, Amen
