Prayer for Friday

My God and my Savior,
I give you praise and glory.
I adore your name
for your name is worthy
of adoration, honor and awe.

I pray that this day
you will bless those that I love.
Bless my family, O Lord,
give them strength and grace,
wisdom and peace.

Bless those with whom I labor,
bless neighbor and friend,
bless those who attend to my needs
in unseen ways,
those who tend my trash,
who clean these streets,
those whose work allows me to eat,
to sleep undisturbed.

Bless those who lead,
those who rule over me,
guide them into wisdom and mercy,
may they walk humbly before you,
may they honor you and do your will
that we may live in peace rather than strife,
that good may come upon the earth and not evil.

Bless me, O Lord, I pray,
that on this good day that you have made
I may truly honor you in all that I do.
So completely shape the thoughts of my heart, O God,
that even every word will speak of light and love.
