A Prayer for Monday, October 1, 2012


As we start a new week, O God, we will be confronted by many tasks, many events, and many situations.

Some of them we will regard as big things; others we will regard as little things.

For all we know, though, what we consider a big thing may turn out to be small and what we consider small may turn out to be big. Or, the results or implications of something may turn out to be much less significant or much more significant than we could ever have anticipated.

And we may never know just how important or unimportant, how influential or non-influential, something is in the long run.

So, O God, in this new week, help us to deal with the tasks, events, and situations with which we will be confronted with trust in you that knows that you know the significance of it all. And in all things, whether we see them as big or small, help us to do our best in and with them.
