Good morning, God!
This is the day that You have made.
I am anxious to meet You this morning. Communicate to me.
I am ready. I will be responsive.
I say "yes" to You! You are a positive God!
And all your promises are "yes" through Jesus Christ.
So I'll be a "yes" person today. I'll say "yes" to Your love.
I'll say "yes, Lord, yes!"
