Morning prayers


For the things which weigh us down...
Give us perspective and peace.

For the worries that press in on our thoughts...
Give us confidence that You are in control.

For the joys that light up our lives...
Give us thankfulness.

For the decisions we have to make...
Give us wisdom and clarity.

For the commitments we have chosen to make...
Give us energy to follow through.

For the unloveliest moments and people in our lives...
Give us Your Holy Spirit, full of love and grace.

For the unanswered questions...
Give us discernment as to Your timing, as well as Your answer!

For our achievements and celebrations...
Give us humility and remind us that You blessed us.

And for all the other things I have forgotten to pray about this morning...
I give them up to You now.

Amen.
