Almighty Father, Beloved Son, Spirit of Truth:
Thank you for the new day
when the sun shines brightly and
I rise fully awake.
I am tired of the clouds and
the dark shadows that persist
even after coffee and a trip to the gym.
Without a doubt,
I am guilty of working too hard, too long, and with too much intensity
that is neither good for me or for my relationships.
Forgive me. Help my family also to forgive me.
Teach me to relax, to take Sabbath seriously, and
not to find find excuses to swap one intense activity for another.
In the power of your Holy Spirit,
grant me strength, grace, and peace one more day.
In Jesus’ precious name, Amen.
