Prayer for the Day

                                                                O God

Thanks to Thee, O God, that I have risen today, 
    To the rising of this life itself; 
May it be to Thine own glory, O God of every gift, 
     And to the glory of my soul likewise. 
O great God, aid Thou my soul 
     With the aiding of Thine own mercy; 
Even as I clothe my body with wool, 
    Cover Thou my soul with the shadow of Thy wing. 
Help me to avoid every sin, 
    And the source of every sin to forsake;
And as the mist scatters on the crest of the hills, 
    May each ill haze clear from my soul, O God. 

Old Celtic Prayer from the Gaelic
