Lord, the week ahead feels so overwhelming to some of us.
It feels heavy and full of burdens.
It creates in us a sense of anxiety and dread.
But there is no week that contains so many troubles that it’s bigger than your goodness. No week is unpredictable to you.
We come to you with our heart and hands open to exchange some things.
To exchange our worry for your peace.
To exchange the lies we are believing for your truth.
To exchange the dread we feel for your hope.
To exchange the exhaustion we feel for your strength.
To exchange our indifference for your purpose.
To exchange our fear for your perfect love.
Thank you for the most holy exchange we could ever receive.
We don’t walk this week alone.
We get to do it hand in hand with you.
Help us to not forget that, Lord.
Help us to bring you glory this week.
No matter where we are.
