I pray you a good day today

I pray you as I write

I pray you peace and love

I pray you faith in the power of the Holy Spirit to protect those you love

I pray you understanding of the journey

I pray you feel my heart for you and those you love

I pray the Holy Spirit who first came as a dove stay with you today lifting your heart and spirit and those of the ones you love

I pray you love like a river

I pray you the peace that passeth understanding

I pray the hard, calloused hands of the Carpenter or Laborer stay on you and the ones you love

I pray you and the ones you love can always feel His Promise to never leave us alone

I pray you and the ones you love Jehovah’s tender mercies and grace freely given

I pray you and the ones you love all the blessings of the Creator of the universe

I pray the ones you love humility and serenity and sweetness of the soul

I pray those you love Divine Understanding of how to be and how to carry themselves

I pray you and those you love to ask the Carpenter every morning how He would walk that day and be that day

I pray joy for you and those you love, joy in a meal, joy in helping others suffering more, joy in being outside, joy in a deeper understanding because of the gift of time to read more deeply

I pray the ones you love the gift of self understanding

I pray you and those you love the ability to love yourself as God loves you

I pray Almighty and All-Loving God hear and answer this sinner’s prayer that came from the deepest place in his heart and soul.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
