Statement: In the Morning, I pray... A visual Interpretation:


This is another day, O Lord.  I know not what it will bring forth, but make me ready, Lord, for whatever it may be.  

If I am to stand up, help me to stand bravely.  If I am to sit still, help me to sit quietly.  If I am to lie low, help me to do it patiently.  

And if I am to do nothing, let me do it gallantly.  Make these words more than words, and give me the Spirit of Jesus.  Amen.  (BCP, 1979 p.461)
