You can have all of me

Image
Lord, You can have all of me. My self-image, my dreams, my family, my career, my pain, my fear, my plans,  my secret places. I surrender. All of it. I give it to you. It belongs to you, anyway, because I belong to you. I don't know why I keep pulling this all back on me. It weighs me down, clouds my thinking, discourages and scares me. I am weary from the burden of it. You want to carry it for me. You want to carry me. So you can have me back again. Again and again and every time I forget and pull this all on myself. Again and again. I love you. I trust you. I need you. Amen. “Come to me,  all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.   Take my yoke upon you and learn from me,  for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.   For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”-- Matthew 11:28-30 For more prayers about this, click below: "When you want to quit praying" "What to pray

A quick prayer for busy people

Image
Lord, Give me energy . I have a lot to do. Help me prioritize . I have a lot to do. Give me awareness of my surroundings. I have a lot to do, which means I may ignore or accidentally hurt people. Keep me from hurting people in my quest to do good. (You know I have a lot to do.) Soften my spirit. The things I have to do are not nearly as important as the people I'll pass along the way. Give me compassion while I'm busy . You know I want to get things done, but I want to help people, too. Okay, you can have my day. I'll only do what you tell me and help the people you bring to mind. Ho-hum. I was going to do a lot today. But now I guess I'll focus on the kingdom of heaven instead. You can't check that off a list, but it's good stuff, anyway. In Jesus' name, Amen. "Keep yourself in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. And of some, have compassion, making a difference.
