A Prayer for Monday, August 20, 2012


O God,

We may already have much of the schedule for our week mapped out; we may already know a lot of what we want to accomplish.

On the one hand, such planning and scheduling indicate that we believe we have a future which indicates that we have hope; we are grateful to find that we possess such hope.

On the other hand, such planning and scheduling can indicate that we think we have greater control over events than we actually do.

Help us this week to find the balance between planning and openness; help us to stick to our schedules as much as possible so that we can make the most effective use of our time but help us also to be open to interruptions and changes so that we don’t miss the new and unexpected opportunities that you place before us.
