Prayer for October 4, 2021

There are times, O God, when we are beyond exhausted.  We want to be fully present to those we love so much that we burn the candles at both ends so completely that we have nothing left.  Help us to recognize those times before we are burnt out.  We know that our love is often the cause of overextending ourselves and we do not have the infinite energy that you have.  May we have the discipline to set aside times of rest so that we can be rejuvenated for the things and people we love so much.  May our expectations of ourselves be more realistic than our drive to be all that we desire.  Help us to be more humble O God. May you continue to guide as we live into who you would have us be.  Amen
