Father God, it’s a new day:
A new day for living in your kingdom.
There’s weeding in the garden
to be done this morning.
And a meeting about church services
So our time on earth is spent.
Does that have your blessing, Father God?
Being retired, we are not in the leading edge.
We read in the paper of electronic game contests
which we don’t understand,
but which the young enjoy.
Those in the work force continue strong.
Each day is a jumble of work and play.
Guide us as we seek to live in your presence. Amen.
“Pray then in this way: Our Father in heaven hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.”
