Bless This Day


This day is full of beauty and adventure,

help me Lord to be fully alive to it all.

During this day, may I become a more thoughtful person,

a more prayerful person, a more generous and kindly person.


Help me not to be turned in on myself but

to be sensitive and helpful to others.

Let me do nothing today that will hurt anyone,

but let me help at least a little,

to make life more pleasant for those I meet.


When night comes, may I look back on this day without regrets;

and may nobody be unhappy because of anything

I have said or done or failed to do.


Lord God, bless this day for me and all of us.

Make it a day in which we grow a little more like your Son,

and gentle as Mary His Mother.
