This simple prayer was originally published in The Warm Milk Journal in March 2011. It quickly became one of our most popular posts and led to the publishing of my beautiful book, Short Morning Prayers A Collection of Heartfelt Prayers to Start Your Day in March of 2017.

Dear God,

I welcome the new day.

May I not rush around so much that I miss the beauty that is all around me.

May I thank one person today.

May I smile more than I frown.

May I think more loving thoughts than self-defeating ones.

Thank you for this day!


Morning in the green forest at summer
