A NEW DAY – Prayer by Marianne Williamson

In Inspirational/Motivational Pictures by Chris Nicholas

I found this really great prayer, A NEW DAY by Marianne Williamson, which I printed out on a sheet of paper and read often. This morning when reading it, I decided to get creative with it and wanted to share it with others. It’s very short and sweet. I hope you enjoy it!


Dear God,
Thank you for this new day, it’s beauty and it’s light.
Thank you for my chance to begin again.
Free me from the limitations of yesterday.
Today may I be reborn.
May I become more fully a reflection of Your radiance.
Give me strength and compassion and courage and wisdom.
Show me the light in myself and others.
May I recognize the good that is available everywhere.
May I be, this day, an instrument of love and healing.
Lead me into gentle pastures.
Give me deep peace that I might serve You most deeply.

Role Reversal is a very personal documentary I’m about caring for my aging mother when she was no longer able to care for herself. My mom beat cancer twice, had a heart attack and quadruple bypass surgery, with every setback imaginable. Her kidneys failed and she went on dialysis and eventually peritoneal dialysis. She suffered several mini-strokes, which kicked in Dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease and finally passed away.
