Faith Reflections

A Prayer for a New Week

A new week is knocking at the door,
while last week is still sprawled out on my couch.
Piles of stuff clutter home and heart and mind.

Lord, it feels like there is never enough.
Never enough time to rest, to think;
Time to play, to breathe.
To get it done.
To be.

Lord, it feels like I’m never enough.
Never enough for family, for work;
For friends.
For me.
For You.

I’m in a race I never wanted to run,
a race I don’t know how to quit.

Help me slow my pace, God.
Help me match my breathing to Yours.
Help me thank last week for her gifts and lessons,
and welcome this week for her possibilities.

I don’t need to be enough.
I just need to be Yours.

I don’t need to be enough.
I just need to be Yours.
