A Prayer for Today
This is the beginning of a new day.
God has given me this day to use at 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 a gain and not a loss;
Good not evil;
Success and not failure
In order that I shall not regret the price I have paid for it.
Morris L. Brown, Sr.December 1990
