Holy One,

I created a list,
Did some research,
Wrote the dates in my calendar,
Outlined my strategies,
And realized…

I had forgotten to pray.
All these dreams and plans…
I now bring to you.


Please take these plans…
Refine them.
Redirect them.
Remind me of Your sacred purpose
And keep me ever mindful
That every day is under construction
With You.

Thank you for being kind
And merciful
And patient.
