God of us all,
I feel surrounded by angry words, and political posturing, and fear. So much fear. 

I know the tasks on my list left to do this week, but they feel impossible. 
I worry that I’m not saying enough, praying enough, doing enough. 
I feel inadequate to the tasks ahead. 

Holy One,
Give me grace to keep walking.
Wisdom to weed out the things I can let go.
And joy in the tending and encouraging. 
I know that you as my Gardener will help me bear much fruit. Fruit that will make you smile.
Fruit that comes out of your abundance.
Fruit that will last!

Thank you!
