Why You Bestow Another Day Upon Us

Dear Lord, please teach us to consider why you bestow yet another day upon us; so that we may spend the rest of our days in a sober, just, and godly way; so that your holy name is honored and praised; and so that we may forever remain in your grace and become holy.

From now on, may your Spirit lead us, and may your angels bless our path. O God, we ask this in the name of your beloved son, Jesus Christ. Amen.

(from the book Amish Prayers, compiled by Beverly Lewis)
