Morning Assembly Prayer

O God at the beginning of this day, I turn to you. I commit my self and all that is mine/Protect me from all dangers/strengthen me against temptations/and keep me free from all evils/Accept the offering of my thoughts, words and deeds.

O Lord, bless my parents, and my family, my friends and my enemies/Fill the leaders of the nations with wisdom and courage/religious men and women with devotion/mother with unstinted love/Give a sense of duty to officials/a sense of justice to business people/a high conscience to professionals/Bless the farmers with abundant harvests. Heal the sick/take care of orphans/do justice to the oppressed/take special care of students and children/that they may grow in strength, wisdom and grace.

Give us understanding, sympathy and love for one another/since we are all children of our Father in Heaven.
