Use this prayer each morning as you get ready for ministry responsibilities:
As I think about my day, there are some things I’m excited about and some I’m dreading. I have people who are looking to me for direction, answers, support, and encouragement. In my own strength, I will fall desperately short of all that is expected of me. Strengthen and remind me that the only one I have to please is you.
May my thoughts, words, and attitudes be pleasing to you. Let every interaction be seasoned with grace and purpose. May no frivolous words or actions clutter my day, but may I dwell only on those things that will bring you glory.
I surrender my day, my agenda, and my plans into your hands. I ask you to order my day your way. Even when the inevitable interruptions come, help me to sense your intention in each one and respond the way Jesus would.
Thank you Lord,
