Enthusiasm

Dear God,

I am seeking to increase my enthusiasm for life.  I know that when energy wanes, enthusiasm is not far from waning as well.  Help me to find the interesting things to do with my day that will ignite enthusiasm.

I seek Your help in any new project I undertake.  Without You, I am a weak reed indeed.  I appreciate that You have given me particular Answers in recent days that have improved my life.

Amen.

Obligations

Dear God,

My should’s and ought’s are pushing me around.  But the things that I see as a “should” or “ought” are things that I wanted.  I need to recognize that my own desires created these things that now seem a burden.

Lighten the sense of a burden.  Give me renewed enthusiasm for these things that I have invited into my life, things that now carry a “should” or “ought” with them.  Renew my gratitude for my opportunities.  In gratitude, I will see only blessings.

Thank You.

Amen.
