Great morning prayer

Dear God
So far today
I’ve done all right.
I haven’t gossiped,
I haven’t lost my temper.
I haven’t been greedy, grumpy,
selfish, or overindulgent.
I am very thankful for that.
But in a few minutes, God,
I’m going to get out of bed;
and from then on,
I’m probably going to need a lot more
