A Prayer for Monday, October 7, 2013


O God,

Here at the beginning of a new week, we want to look ahead; we want to think about all that we expect to do during this week and to plan for the activities that we anticipate.

Thank you for the capability of looking ahead and planning ahead.

At the same time, help us not to put too must trust in our plans; give us flexibility because, while we can anticipate what we think is coming, we really have no idea what will happen.

Guard us against frustration that can accompany unexpected developments; guard us against arrogance that leads us to think that things should go as we think they should go.

Help us to plan ahead for what we anticipate lies ahead; help us not to put too must trust in our plans or in our foreknowledge; help us to trust you to guide us in whatever lies ahead.
