As morning breaks I think of you, O Lord, and my desire is to serve You joyfully.
With gladness, I consecrate this day to Your Sacred Heart, and offer whatever joys and sacrifices may come my way.
Thank You for the graces You will send – all the love, all the beauty, and the ways You will answer my prayers.
Today, may I love my enemies, and treat others as I would ask to be treated; may I forgive seventy-times-seven and show mercy; may I welcome the prodigal, have compassion for the Samaritan; be a peace-maker and love my neighbor unconditionally.
Take all my heart, and mind and strength, O Lord, that this day may be truly lived for Your greater honor and glory and for the salvation of souls.
