Friday is the day on which many of us finish up some of what we’ve been working on all week and the day on which we walk away from what is yet unfinished. It is the end of the work week. It is Weekend Eve.
Lord, while it is understandable that we look forward to Friday, forgive us if we have wasted time and lost opportunities this week because we were looking ahead instead of living in the moment.
Lord, thank you for what we have been able by your grace and by our efforts to accomplish this week.
Lord, help us to hand our unfinished tasks over to you and to return to them next week with renewed commitment and with fresh perspective.
And Lord, most of us could probably use a little fun and relaxation tonight and this weekend. Let it be.
