A Prayer for Today.

I've been attempting (I stress attempting) to wake up earlier than the kids and read the Bible and pray. It has been hard because Kole usually gets up somewhere between 6:30 and 7am but, I find my day seems alot smoother when I actually do this. But again, it has been a challenge :) If he happens to wake up and I need some time, I will try and occupy him with something in his room for a little while. If I don't get to it then, naptime always works. :) Anyway, I came across this prayer that has helped me alot and I thought I would share it with you. Whether you are a mother who works or stays at home, a dad, a grandparent, aunt or uncle; I think this prayer is great for all of us.
Lord Jesus, in the events of this day may I
find myself in the path of the blessed.
Keep my heart from evil-from walking,
standing, or sitting in the places of the
heart and mind where I ought not to be.
May I delight in you and your Word,
and may my inner thoughts be open to
and upon you moment by moment.
-George O. Wood
