Great prayer! Meant a lot to me today!

Lord, come upon us with your Holy Spirit and give us the ability to hear what our Father is telling us to do step by step. Lord, in your earthly ministry you were never in a hurry, never rushed, and never behind. You had a rhythm of life that provided opportunities to rest in the midst of all of the demands upon you. You promised that your yoke is easy and your burden is light. Right now, Lord, the yoke is extremely heavy and rubbing our shoulders and neck unceasingly. Tune our ears and our hearts to you walking beside us in the yoke. Enable us to let you accomplish what needs to be done each hour of each day. Fill us, Holy Spirit, with the wisdom to know what to do and what not to do this week and next week. And, give us the strength, peace and guidance to accomplish what  you show us to do. As we place our heads on our pillows each night, minister to us with restful and undisturbed sleep. When the alarm goes off each morning, and as we sit up and put our feet on the bedroom floor in order to start a new day, manifest your presence with us; encourage us; empower us so that we can order our day in the way that you would have us to go. Enable us to say NO to what can wait for another day or week, so that we can say YES to and do what is important and necessary. You know our schedules, and you know our tendencies to panic. Affirm us in your grace and protect our time. Thank you, Lord Jesus. We are your servants. What we ask for ourselves, we ask also for those who will be attending the three retreats next week. In your name we pray. Amen.
