Morning Prayer

This poem would be a wonderful poem to pray each morning to help us to be a better person each day, doing all that we can to make this world a better place. It needs all the help it can get but what better way to help it by speading God's love in us to the world all around us.

Best Wishes / Poems / Christian Poems / Morning Prayer

LET me to-day do something that shall take
A little sadness from the world's vast store,
And may I be so favored as to make
Of joy's too scanty sum a little more.

Let me not hurt, by any selfish deed
Or thoughtless word, the heart of foe or friend;
Nor would I pass, unseeing, worthy need.
Or sin by silence when I should defend.

However meager be my worldly wealth
Let me give something that shall aid my kind,
A word of courage, or a thought of health,
Dropped as I pass for troubled hearts to find.

Let me to-night look back across the span
'Twixt dawn and dark, and to my conscience say
Because of some good act to beast or man
"The world is better that I lived to-day."
Ella Wheeler Wilcox
