God, this week I will embark on many tasks at home, on my job and elsewhere.
Help me to stay within my physical and spiritual limitations with each.
Give me courage to say “no” when asked to go outside the boundaries
that you and I have set.
Help me not to overproduce and overwork to get validation
from those who don’t really matter.
Rid me of guilt and shame, when I take moments to rest to rejuvenate my body and spirit.
Let me be a blessing to those I work for and with.
Grant me supernatural favor, as I enter tumultuous workplaces
and encounter unhealthy people.
Protect me from the fiery arrows that come to harm me.
Help me to see but not fear them.
Grant me wisdom to navigate through difficult situations, while remaining calm inwardly.
Most importantly, Lord, help me not to dread, but instead rejoice,
in every day that you have made.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
