A Prayer for Today...

It's Monday again. Our weekend was a long one and the week ahead of us looks like it has the potential to be challenging as well. Today, I have a few simple, mostly Hurricane Sandy related tasks:

  • Get the laundry finished before the power goes out.
  • Prepare some snacks to enjoy when the power goes out.
  • Unglue my attention from The Weather Channel before the power goes out.
  • Charge all phones and electronics before the power goes out.
  • Locate a candle or two to light (say it with me) when the power goes out.
  • Heed the standards posted on the living room wall...

Perhaps if  I put this one first, the others would be easier to accomplish?

Lord, give me I pray:
A remembering heart for the things that have happened
An attentive heart to what I have heard
A forgiving heart for what has hurt
A grateful heart for what has blessed
A brave heart for what may be required
An open heart to all that may come
A trusting heart to go forth with You
A loving heart for You and all Your creation
A longing heart for the reconciliation of all things.
A willing heart to say "yes" to what You will.

Love that plaque! And, here's to hoping that the power DOESN'T go out here! ( if, haha!)
