Dear God, come sit next to me. Let me feel your presence like a friend. Whispere into my ear your instructions for the day. As I rise and set about enacting them, hold my hand and guide me to each station. Strengthen me when I falter, stiffen my backbone when I become fearful – as now.
I delay the start of the day out of fear. Drive me forward and let me act rightly in spite of my worries and cares. Let me truly, fully rely on you.
