I took this picture early this morning. It was so clear you could see the downtown LA buildings.
A prayer found in the official Marine Corps Field Devotional Book, p. 17.
It is called "My Morning Offering" ... O God, for another day, for another morning, for another minute, for another chance to live and serve You, I am truly grateful. Do...this day free me: from all fears of the future, from all anxiety about tomorrow, from all bitterness towards anyone, from all cowardice in the face of danger, from all laziness in the face of work, from all failure before opportunity, from all weakness when Your power is at hand. But fill me with Love that knows no barrier, with Sympathy that reaches all, with Courage that cannot be shaken, with Faith strong enough for the darkness, with Strength sufficient for my tasks, with Loyalty to Your Kingdom's goal, with Wisdom to meet life's complexities, with Power to lift me to you. Be with me for another day, and use me as You will. Amen.
