A prayer for today….. September 20, 2010

Posted by Barbara in Gamer Mom, Life.

Well, Lord,  I woke up again this morning.   So I’ll be needing You.

When I feel depressed, help me to see the good in this world and the people in it.  To appreciate their talents and strengths, especially the hidden ones.  To be strong enough to say the words of encouragement they need to hear and swallow the words of judgement.

Help me to see that my son is one of those people.   And my mother.   And so am I.

Help me to listen more than I talk.

Make me aware of my blessings.  It is so easy to dwell on the challenges and miss the joys.

When I’m tired and aching, help me to take care of myself.   Make me hungry for the good foods, find motivation for exercise, slow myself down during the day and give myself enough time to sleep.  I know that only by taking care of myself will I have the strength to take care of others.

Teach me to find moments of peace from the rush of information and the demands of chores.

Help me to choose my battles wisely and let go when I need to.

Help me to challenge myself to reach outside my comfort zone, and to see this as an adventure rather than a pain.

And thanks for giving me another chance.

Prayer is not an old woman’s idle amusement. Properly understood and applied, it is the most potent instrument of action. ~ Mahatma Ghandi
