Prayer Of The Stressed

Lord, help me to relax about insignificant details beginning tomorrow at 7:41:23 am.

God, help me to consider people's feelings, even if most of them ARE hypersensitive.

God, help me to take responsibility for my own actions, even though they're usually NOT my fault.

God, help me to not try to RUN everything. But, if You need some help, please feel free to ASK me!

Lord, help me to be more laid back and help me to do it EXACTLY right.

God, help me to take things more seriously, especially laughter, parties, and dancing.

God, give me patience, and I mean right NOW!

Lord, help me not be a perfectionist. (Did I spell that correctly?)

God, help me to finish everything I start.

God, help me to do only what I can, and trust you for the rest.

And would you mind putting that in writing?

Lord, keep me open to others' ideas, WRONG though they may be.

Lord, help me be less independent, but let me do it my way.

Lord, help me follow established procedures today.

On second thought,...I'll settle for a few minutes.

Lord, help me slow down andnotrushthroughwhatIdo.

Great's brevity reminds us that the things we consider so important are not important after all.
