The Setting Of Proper Priorities
Father, too often I allow urgency to dictate my schedule, and I am asking You to help me establish priorities in my work. I confess my weakness of procrastination and lack of organization. My desire is to live purposefully and worthily and accurately as a wise, sensible,intelligent person.
You have given me a seven-day week-six days to work and the seventh day to rest. I desire to make the most of the time buying up each opportunity. Help me plan my day, and stay focused on my assignments.
In the name of Jesus, I demolish and smash warped philosophies concerning time management, tear down barriers erected against the truth of God, and fit every loose thought, emotion, and impulse into the structure of life shaped by Christ. I clear my mind of every obstruction and build a life of obedience into maturity.
Father, You are in charge of my work and my plans. I plan the way I want to live, but You alone make me able to live it. Help me to organize my efforts, schedule my activities and budget my time.
Jesus, You want me to relax. It pleases You when I am not preoccupied with getting so, I can respond to God’s giving. I know You, Father God, and how You work. I steep my life in God -reality, God -initiative and God – provisions.
By the grace given me, I will not worry about missing out, and my everyday human concern will be met. I purpose in my heart to seek ( aim at and strive after) first of all Your Kingdom, Lord, and Your righteousness [ Your way of doing and being right], and then all these things taken together will be given me besides.
Father, Your Word is my compass, and it helps me see my life as complete in Christ. I cast all my cares, worries, and concerns over on You, that I might be well balanced ( temperate, sober of mind), vigilant, and cautious at all times.
I tune my ears to the word of wisdom and set my heart on a life of understanding. I make insight my priority.
Father, You sent Jesus that I might have life and have it more abundantly. Help me remember that my relationship with You and with others are more important than anything else, Amen.
