God, we thank you that your mercies are new every morning.
We praise you that you are the author of life and the giver of each new day.
We thank you that no matter the challenges we face today, we face them knowing you are present and able. We face nothing alone.
Today we ask that you help us rely on your strength rather than muscle our way through the day in ours.
We ask you to help us rest in your peace rather than churn in our own anxiety and fear.
We ask that your love will surround us, your hope will fill us, and that your love and hope will overflow through us impacting others around us.
We ask this is the name of Jesus. Amen.
