A Prayer to Begin the Day

O God, who hast commanded us to be perfect, as thou our Father in heaven art perfect: Put into our hearts, we pray thee, a continual desire to obey thy holy will. Teach us day by day what thou wouldest have us to do, and give us courage and strength to fulfill the same. May we never, from love of ease, decline the path which thou pointest out, nor, for fear of shame, turn away from it. We ask it for the honour of Jesus Christ our Saviour.
