A Prayer for Today

A Prayer for Today

This is the beginning of a new day.

God has given me this day to use as I will.

I can waste it or use it for good, but what I do today is important, because I am exchanging a day of my life for it.

When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever, leaving in its place something that I have traded for it.

I want it to be gain, and not loss; good, and not evil; success, and not failure, in order that I shall not regret the price I have paid for it.

This day is all we have. Is there someone to whom as an act kindness – not tomorrow but today – could make a world of difference?

Today, whether we spend it well or throw it away, will be gone tomorrow. What is there to do that is worth our effort?
