Loving God, as I embark on the adventure of this new day,
I will imagine you as my mother or father,
teaching me to walk with cords of human kindness and love,
a tether as you guide me along.
Therefore I will not fear failure
or worry that I will not have enough time or goods
if I give a little to those in need. Amen.
Household Prayer: Evening
Thank you, God, for the gift of this day.
Thank you for bringing me home to you.
As I fall asleep, I will consider your steadfast love for me
and repeat with my breathing,
“You are rich toward me, and I am rich toward you.
You are rich toward me, and I am rich toward you.” Amen.
