...of the day...


PRAYER FOR GOD'S GUIDANCE
X
God be in my head, and in my understanding,
God be in mine eyes, and in my looking,
God be in my mouth, and in my speaking,
God be in my heart, and in my thinking,
God be at mine end, and at my departing.

I've marked this as "cool" Lyn, because it is a prayer my husband and I say often. You might also like some of Lancelot Andrewes prayers (if you don't already know them.)
