God, thank You for giving me another day. Let me face my troubles today – the big and the small – with a happy heart filled with Your unending love. Let me appreciate the moments of joy You send me this day. Let me see the cares of others as an opportunity to bring Your great compassion to those who most need it.

And God, I know that You see and know all things  – all of the world’s loveliness, and all of its harshness, too. So on this day that You have given me, I ask that I may bring Your joy with me as I share myself with others. And I pray that You will be warmed by the happiness of Your children.

Finally, God, let me never forget that in all things, in gladness or sorrow, You who are all love and joy, and hope are always by my side.
