I want what You want, O Lord. By asking You for guidance with complete confidence and faith that You are helping me, nothing that I am called upon to do becomes “too much” or “too bothersome.” Nor is there any room for worry.
I will find it easy to ask You each day to be a partner in my work”¦to help me get things done”¦to weigh my actions and decisions in the light of “is this right?” “is this just?” “is this doing Your will?”
With Your help I will make decisions better and faster, knowing that You will not lead me astray. I will have confidence that, by wanting what You want, I need not worry about the outcome. So I will live my life, knowing that it is Your will that I accomplish.
