Morning petition for the burdened

Morning petition for the burdened

"Blessed be the Lord, who daily bears us up; God is our salvation." - Psalm 68:19

As we welcome the weekend, let us seek God's presence this morning and pray for our burdened souls, before our energy and attention is pulled by all the tasks that we may ever have ahead. 

Lord God, today, You have brought us into the beginning of a new day

As we take the first steps to venture out and enjoy the blessings of this new day, we pray

Renew our hearts with faith and purpose, that we may all remember to say,

thank you, for the chance to make important discoveries and experiences that will lead us closer to You.

Forgive our burdened souls, dear Father, as the day starts

As we walk into our workplace, we humbly ask that the challenges that the day may send,

we pray that our shoulders may be broad enough; our hearts big enough; our wisdom deep enough.

Consciously tuck us in Your whisper of absolute love, o Lord, that nothing may separate us from You today.

Psalm 86:13:

Bless us, Father, with a fresh supply of strength, patience, and perseverance

Anoint every project and idea that come our way, that each careless thought, word, and action may bring glory to Your name

Help us be brave in the face of the emotional messiness that certain burdens bring.

Help us know how to rely on Your presence more than I rely on my words.

Help us keep our burdened hearts pure and undivided today

Bless us with the power of discipline and moderation

Help us be brave to face the emotional messiness that certain burdens bring

Grant that we may trudge reasonably and grow with the hurdles of the day.

Lord, make all things right and all things new.

This, we pray, in Your persistent and sufficient name,

Amen.
