It’s a new week for us, Lord!
We want to walk in obedience and bear fruit and
do all the things that please you.
Yes, we WANT to do all those things, but we’re sure to fail.
We’ll entertain critical thoughts and say careless words.
We’ll get aggravated for no good reason,
and we might do some of that before we even walk outside the door!
We confess those things to you right now, and ask You to
fill with a sense of Your presence and with Your strength.
Please give us patience and every grace we’ll need to make it through this day.
May we be mindful of Your presence within us this day and every day.
In Christ Jesus’ name we pray,
