"Father, I have much to be grateful for tonight,
and I thank you,
I have much to regret and I ask your forgiveness.
But even as I ask your forgiveness
I know that I receive it,
and a deep peace fills my heart.
Help me to sleep well tonight
and to wake ready for that daily,
yet greatest of gifts,
a fresh start."
- Avery Brooke
"Grant unto me your servant:
To my God a heart of flame
To my fellow men a heart of love;
To myself a heart of steel."
"Praise the LORD.
Praise, O servants of the LORD,
praise the name of the LORD.
Let the name of the LORD be praised,
both now and forevermore.
From the rising of the sun
to the place where it sets,
the name of the LORD is to be praised.
The LORD is exalted over all the nations,
his glory above the heavens.
Who is like the LORD our God,
the One who sits enthroned on high,
who stoops down to look on
the heavens and the earth?"
- Psalm 113:2-6 NIV
