Loving Father, this is the day you have gifted to me. Let me be glad and rejoice in it. Help me do what you have tasked me to get done in the hours before this day turns to another. Guide my thoughts. Strengthen my resolve. Energize my body to get up and move to your good pleasure. I ask these things in the name and authority of Jesus, who got up and performed the appointed task, even to death on a cross, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.” (Philippians 2:8 ESV)
