Morning Prayers

Our father, we awake another day to see YOUR sun because it is YOUR will. We breathe, eat and drink to live because it is YOUR will. And when we have fulfilled our purpose on earth, our bodies shall return to the dust, by YOUR will. But before my time comes, I shall use our gift of freewill and dedicate a portion of my life to prayer. Now for all who will accept it, I pray for a change in their life. That they might choose YOU and gift back to YOU, freewill. For we are only truly free, with YOU.
