Good morning, God—thank You! 🙂

You are with me wherever I go; therefore, nothing shall make me afraid. Holy Spirit, let me not eat the bread of anxious toil but unwind in peace with You. Not with manmade aid, but Your sweet sleep; help me to lie down and dream—wake up and feel rejuvenated! In Jesus’ name. Amen.
