Loving God, I give you thanks for the “time out” I just had; for that quiet time with coffee and your Word. Life as a pastor can be very busy at times but you are faithful to provide moments for me to get away. May I not take those for granted.
Loving God, I also ask that we may never be “too busy” to hear from you. May we, as your children, always seek you. May we, as your beloved, desire your Word. May we, as your redeemed, run to you. May we have the presence of mind to recognize that our need for you is greater than any over-sized calendar and to-do list.
Gracious God, thank you for this day and we ask that you may bless our evening; bless our rest; bless our dreaming, that we may awake in the morning to tackle a new day. But, of course, all this according to your gracious will.
In Jesus name we pray, Amen.
