May I wake with a prayer on my lips,
And rise with a prayer in my mind,
For you are the giver of faith, hope, and love,
My Father, eternally kind.
May I live with a prayer on my lips,
And work with a prayer in my heart,
For you are my fortress, my strength, and my rock,
And so we are never apart.
May I serve with a prayer on my lips,
And rest with a prayer in my soul,
For you are the giver of infinite life,
And your sacrifice, Lord, makes me whole.
How kind the Lord is! (Psalm 116:4; NLT)
Three things will last forever — faith, hope and love — and the greatest of these is love (1 Corinthians 13:13; NLT).
The Lord is my rock, my fortress (2 Samuel 22:2; NLT).
The Lord is my strength (Exodus 15:2; NLT).
The Lord is always with me (Psalm 16:8; NLT).
The free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord (Romans 6:23; NLT).
Upon him was the punishment that made us whole (Isaiah 53:5; NRSV).
