Housekeeping

Dear God,

I have chores to do today, but You will be with me in the midst of them, turning erstwhile drudgery into a flowing exercise in cleanliness.  My housekeeping I will dedicate to you, for cleanliness is next to godliness, as they say.

I will be mindful as I work.  I discovered years ago that this is the best way to have a good outcome in housekeeping.

Thank You for that long-ago insight.  Help me to put it into practice today.

Amen.

Joy

Dear God,

The preacher on the radio said to look to the future for its joy, not dwell on the past. 

I needed to hear that.  Sometimes I get so caught up in the past, almost seem to live there, not a good thing.  I would walk into the future with You, sure of Your care, sure of Your love.  And living well in the present is the very best preparation for the future.

Amen.

Creating Reality

Dear God,

I am wrapped up in blessings just all the time.  Thank You for Your immense care of me.  I ask that I never let a day go by that I don’t acknowledge Your bountiful nature.

I create my reality, but You guide my mind and heart to know what to create.  When things turn out well, it is all Your doing, and I would be wise to acknowledge Your central place in the life I am building. 

Thank You for Your ever-present guidance.

Amen.

Dreams

Dear God,

I have a dream that I am going to follow, though the results are not sure.  I have followed dreams all my life, especially in my early adulthood, and I have never regretted it.  Be with me now for a good decision.

Nothing has to be rushed.  Your time is measured and sure.  I would pace myself on this dream.

Thank You for guiding me this far.  And I pray for further guidance on an ongoing basis.

Amen.
