I Enter this Day With Joy – A Prayer by John Birch.

by Christine Sine


Autumn at the Mustard Seed Village

I normally post all of the Light for the Journey Prayers on Saturday but loved this prayer by John Birch so much that I wanted to make sure it was not overshadowed by some of the others from the week. And it reflected my feelings exactly as we visited Camano Island this morning and saw the pole barn at the Mustard Seed Village with the roof (at least the first stage) now on. More photos here

I enter this day with joy
knowing you are with me
every step of the way,
knowing there is a purpose
to each breath that I take,
knowing there is a hope
toward which I walk.

I enter this day with faith
knowing you are the strength
which I depend on,
knowing you are the love
that is all embracing,
knowing it is your peace
which calms my soul.

I enter this day with praise
knowing that I worship
with service as with voice,
hoping that my words
might reveal your truth,
hoping that your grace
might touch another heart.
