O God, thank you for allowing your angels to watch over me last night as I slept. You didn’t let the enemy try to take me while I slept. Instead, you kept me safe and sound. Lord, I just want to thank you. Thank you for letting me see another day. Father, there are a lots of things we take for granted, being alive is one of them. We just know we are going to be here. Help me and others to see that you are the reason we are here today. Now Lord, help me to do right with this day you have given me. Amen.
