Morning Prayer

This is a prayer that I sang every morning as a child. The tune came back to mind this morning and for a second I gave the words some thought. Although it is written for children, these words are very much applicable to everyone. It should be our prayer to love God more daily and to simply be the best we can.

Father We thank thee for the night
And for the pleasant morning light
For rest and food and loving care
And all that makes the world so fair

Help us to do the things we should
To be to others kind and good
In all we do, in work or play
To love thee better day by day
Rebecca J Weston


  1. Childlike prayers are powerful! Thank you for sharing this!

  2. I agree! no matter how small. From the heart is all that matters
