A Prayer for Procrastinators
God, you are the everlasting instant.
You are now and then and will be.
Today I pray for the procrastinators,
for those who struggle with time management,
for those who are anxious about what they have to get done,
for those who can’t silence the to-do lists running in their minds.
Jesus told us not to worry, not to be anxious,
but sometimes those feelings creep in.
Help us focus.
Help us prioritize.
Help us quiet that “inner editor” who tells us what we’re doing is wrong or not good enough.
Spirit, breathe a new into our lives, especially this instant,
to give us perspective and peace.
Not everything needs to get done right now,
and there are some things we could ask someone else to do
or that we could ask for help for.
Give us wisdom and confidence. Amen.
