You are close beside me (Psalm 23:4; NLT).

Pray continually (1 Thessalonians 5:17; NIV).

Their eyes were opened, and they recognised him (Luke 24:31; NLT).

There is a spirit within people, the breath of the Almighty within them (Job 32:8; NLT).



Please help me
To know your presence,
To pray constantly,
And to recognise you
In all I meet today.



Suddenly their eyes were opened, and they recognised him (Luke 24:31; NLT).

O nations of the world, recognise the Lord (1 Chronicles 16:28; NLT).

God speaks again and again, though people do not recognise it (Job 33:14; NLT).



Lord God,
May I recognise you today
In everything I see,
All those I meet,
And even in myself.



Unfailing love

Surely the Lord is in this place, and I wasn’t even aware of it! (Genesis 28:16; NLT).

You will show me the way of life, granting me the joy of your presence (Psalm 16:11; NLT).

You have brought me into your presence forever (Psalm 41:12; NLT).

I am always aware of your unfailing love (Psalm 26:3; NLT).


As I practice your presence
Throughout today,
May I always be aware
Of your unfailing love.

No matter what today may bring

These three remain: faith, hope and love (1 Corinthians 13:13; NIV).

Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows (John 16:33; NLT).

Though the Lord gave you adversity for food and suffering for drink, he will still be with you to teach you (Isaiah 30:20; NLT).

I hold you by your right hand – I, the Lord your God. And I say to you, ‘Don’t be afraid, I am here to help you’ (Isaiah 41:13; NLT).


No matter
What today
May bring,
Please give me
The faith,
And hope,
And love
I need,
To face it all
With you.


I love you

Love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, and all your strength (Mark 12:30; NLT).

Love your neighbour as yourself (Mark 12:31; NLT).

You are the temple of the living God (Luke 17:21; NKJV).


I love you, Lord,
I love you.

What else is there
To say?

May I love you
In all I meet,

And in myself,
