Good Morning God! Helen Stiener Rice You are ushering in another day untouched and freshly new, so here I come to ask You God if You’ll renew me too? Forgive the many errors, that I made yesterday, and let me try again dear God, to walk closer in Thy Way. But Father, I am well aware I can’t make it on my own. So take my hand and hold it tight for I can’t walk alone. Gene & Mary Allison’s Daily Prayer from memory.
