Lord, help me to be efficient and effective at the workplace, but not to the point of forsaking You and my family. Forgive me when I bring the frustrations and performance-focused attitude of work back home, or when I do not have the time or energy to show my child Your compassionate love because I am caught up with work. I ask for greater enabling to put my family first, above work, and I pray that I will, with Your help, love them deeply and unconditionally, with Your love.
Prayer of the Day
Better a little with the fear of the Lord than great wealth with turmoil.
What do people get for all the toil and anxious striving with which they labor under the sun? All their days their work is grief and pain; even at night their minds do not rest. This too is meaningless.
