A lot lies ahead of us this week, some of which we know about and some of which we don’t, some of which we think is not very important and some of which we think is quite important.
Help us not to care too much about it all. Help us not to care so much that we try to take control of it, that we try to be in charge of it, that we try to manipulate it, and that we try to own it. Help us to remember that finally and ultimately it is all in your hands.
At the same time, help us to care enough. Help us to care enough to use our gifts well, to use our time well, and to use our energy well so that we appropriately play our role in the accomplishing of your will. Empower us to care enough to do our best but not so much that we never think our best is good enough.
