Confusion

That was the phone again!
__ Lord, doorbells, phone calls,
__ babies crying—
__ this is one of those days!
Help me to calm down,
__ get control of myself
__ and talk to You about it.
You know I have a hard time
__ handling pressure and confusion,
__ so, please calm my spirit
__ and clear my mind.
Father, now as I take pencil and paper,
__ give me wisdom
__ to write out a schedule
__ for the rest of this day
__ that will honor You
__ by bringing order
__ out of chaos.
Help me to identify true priorities,
__ set realistic goals,
__ lay aside wasteful activities,
__ abandon good, (but unessential) pursuits,
That I may joyfully
__ chart a course
__ through confusion
__ and that this day may lead me closer
__ to my Savior,
________in Whose Name I pray,
_______________Amen.

  1. Thank you! Other than the beginning examples (mine would be back from vacation, in the midst of a kitchen remodeling project and running a basketball tournament this weekend) this prayer was exactly what I needed to get my day started (and in order!). I love the way God works!
