Here’s an excerpt from my forthcoming prayer book, The Offerings of Our Lips: Prayers for the Family Altar.
Prayer Upon Rising
Let me hear in the morning of your steadfast love, for in you I trust. Make me know the way I should go, for to you I lift up my soul. (Psalm 143:8)
I thank you, living and eternal King, for you have graciously given me another day to serve you. You are forever faithful and abounding in compassion! May your kingdom reign this day in my life and my home. I acknowledge you as Lord, and declare myself your servant.
And from the Guide to Usage:
“Prayer Upon Rising” is designed to be short and sweet (and easily memorized) so as to be the first thing that crosses your lips as soon as sleep has departed enough to allow coherence!
