Dear God, I come to You this morning, full of hope that the day to come might be filled with joy and energy. Grant that I may do my work with a light and happy heart. If I face frustration today, let me handle it with acceptance and faith that the outcome is in Your hands.
Lead me away from anger or judgment of other people. Let me tend to my own garden instead of looking over the fence. If my neighbor's yard is filled with weeds, help me not to criticize, and keep me from envy of those whose tree bears more fruit.
Let everything I attempt be filled with the knowledge and guidance of Your Holy Spirit. I pray that the Spirit will be with me at every moment. Let me always be aware of Him, and live every moment of this day in Your presence.
