Prayer of gratitude

Precious God,
Thank you for this day,
for this week of rest and relaxation,
family and friends.
I am so grateful for the reminder
of the importance of family, small moments, laughter, and time away.
Guide me and direct me as I prepare to return.
Fill me with affection for your people.
Calm the storms at home
so I don't return to a maelstrom
but to joy-filled, passionate ministry.
Help me to work on these papers
and in so doing,
to glorify you.
In Jesus' name.
