As we begin another week of hurrying and scurrying about our busy lives, we pause to express our sincere praise of your majesty.
We confess to you that we are intensely aware of our frailties and failings as humans. We also acknowledge that we are utterly dependent upon you for all that we have and all that we are able to do in this day….in every day. We humbly ask you to guide our steps throughout this week. Help us search for and find ways to serve as instruments of your peace in this tumultuous, sin-savaged world. Help us to be a blessing to others. Please help us choose actions that are just and merciful; and, fill us with your Holy Spirit that we might be empowered to walk humbly with you each step of the way. Amen.
