We have made our plans for the week; we have thought ahead to all that we need to do and we have made plans to get it all done.
Thank you for the ability to look ahead and to plan ahead.
Thank you also for the wisdom to know that while it is possible that many or even most of our plans will hold together it is also possible that many or even most of them will fall apart. If this week is like most weeks, some of our plans will work out while some of them will not.
Give us the grace to adapt in response to the situations and challenges that will emerge this week. Help us to remember and to live in light of the truth that some of our greatest opportunities may present themselves in the form of interruptions and even irritations.
Give us discipline to stick to our plans.
Give us flexibility to change our plans.
Give us wisdom to perceive your plans.
