My friend Wanda Devereaux, who is a very good Montgomery lawyer and an even better person, recently sent out a timely message to a number of her friends. Even though Wanda intended it for women only, a copy of the message was delivered to me. After reading it, I asked Wanda’s permission to include her message in this issue and she agreed.
During my (way too early) morning prayers, it occurred to me how much I hate Mondays. Don’t you? Anyway, it inspired me to send a Monday morning prayer to all my Daughters of the King Sisters online and I thought I would share one with you. It can’t hurt, even if you don’t believe, and it just might make your Monday go better. Anyway, I love you all – Monday or no! Maybe just getting out of the hospital – again – has inspired me. The entire EMT, ambulance, ER, 5N staff know me and Jerry by name and sight. This one was so close it even makes being around for Mondays look good!
Almighty God, what better day to re-devote our lives to Thee, following thy precious Sunday, beginning the week of toil – and heavy burdens for some — than Monday? Give us grace and confidence to start this new week with vigor, confidence, dedication and – most of all – abiding love for Thee. So draw our hearts to Thee, so guide our minds, so fill our imaginations, so control our wills, that we may be wholly thine, utterly dedicated unto Thee; and then use us, we pray Thee, as thou wilt, and always to Thy glory and the welfare of Thy people; through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, without whom we are naught. Amen. I pray this prayer for each of you, whatever your beliefs. God has an enormous capacity for love for all of us, regardless of our beliefs. I also pray that this prayer brings you blessings and a productive Monday and week.
Wanda’s prayer is certainly appropriate for all of us as we start a work week. I appreciate very much her allowing me to include it for our readers – men and women alike!
