This is the day the Lord has made.
And what a day you have made. It is filled with possibility and hope, and as my trembling foot steps forward into it, I pray that your confidence will fill me and your Spirit will overwhelm me so that my steps on this day make you joyful. May this day be one where your kingdom draws near, where your will is done, where your peace reigns. May this day be a day where my life proclaims your kingdom. May those who are sick be well, those who are lonely be at peace, those who struggle with deep questions find their answers in you.
May this day be blessed by your name.
