Lent 2013 – Day 8: ‘When the world is in overdrive’


Lord, when the world is in overdrive,
help me to stop … pace myself … and act with discipline.
May my deeds be generous and full of grace.

Lord, when I need to go against the flow,
help me to be strong and courageous.
May I always keep close to you.

Lord, when I’m tempted to compete against others,
help me to be authentic and intentional.
May I be the best that I can be – without comparison!

Lord, when pressured to be what others want me to be,
help me, in Christ, to be true to myself.
May I bear much fruit for You.

Lord, when I feel few really understand me,
help me to listen for MY name on YOUR lips.
May I be assured of the depth of Your love.

Lord, when I forget that life is a precious gift,
help me to live life to the full,
and may I live well too!
