Dedicated to Jamie Knoxville- On my knees for ya! The ‘Monday’ prayer from the Lutheran Prayer Book;
Lord, in this morning hour I come boldly to Your throne of grace in full assurance that there I shall obtain mercy and find grace and help in time of trouble. I need Your help and Your grace as I again turn to the routine of my vocation and schedule. Grant me true faithfulness in the performance of my calling. Guard me against becoming selfish, careless, and lazy in carrying out my daily work, so that all I do has not only the appearance of being pleasing among men, but it also true service to my neighbor, that I may be a servant of Christ, doing the will of God.
GRANT TO ALL WHO ARE OUT OF WORK USEFUL EMPLOYMENT! Feed us all with food necessary for our lives, and teach us to receive it with thanksgiving. Grant us the godliness and contentment without which there can be no true happiness, and let us so walk through the things temporal that me may not lose sight of the things eternal; for Jesus’ sake. Amen.
