I am feeling so overwhelmed this school year and it isn't a good feeling. It is leading to other feelings I don't like. I decided to google "prayer for peace" and this came up from crosswalk.com .
I will be visiting them each morning now.
Pray this prayer today:
Father, I’ve lived without margin in my life for so long I
can hardly remember what it’s like to not feel fatigue or pressure all
the time. I think fatigue is the normal way I’m supposed to live and
feel, but it’s not. I’m tired of being rushed and late and exhausted all
the time. I’ve got too many irons in the fire, and I need your help to
get out of the mess I’ve gotten myself into. Help me to recognize and
accept my limitations. Help me to put some space in my schedule. I need
breathing room and margin in my life. Jesus Christ, I know I can’t do it
all, and I need your wisdom in deciding what matters most and what I
should do. I don’t want to waste my life. Please give me the courage to
say ‘no’ to the wrong things and ‘yes’ to the right things. Most of all,
help me to trust you. Forgive me for thinking and acting as if
everything depends on me. It doesn’t. It all depends on you! I want to
have greater faith in you and less reliance on myself. I want less
stress and more margin in my life. In your name I pray. Amen.
