The Gift of This Day

Gracious God,

Despite my presumptuous plans,
there is no guarantee of the future,
not even of the next moment on this earth;
for that moment is hidden from me until it comes,
and only you know what this day will bring.

Help me to see this day for what it is,
a gift, although expected,
one that was surely not owed,
an act of immeasurable grace.

So, thank you for this day
of incomparable worth.

It is all I have,
but it is surely enough.
