God, my mind is in constant motion. My thoughts are like bumper-cars,
colliding and bouncing, turning and starting again. The competing
voices weave a tangled web that blocks my awareness of You. God,
it is only when I am still that I can hear Your still small voice.
The high-pitched hums of competing voices stop at last, and peace
slowly softens my knotted soul. Thank You God, for breaking through
the nettle of my distractions, and for making me whole. In Jesus'

(Meditation: II Corinthians 9:8)
God, once I answered "Yes" to You, and I felt good about it, but
here at work I'm not sure what that "Yes" means. I DO know one attitude
I should change: ______________. I DO know one ambition I should
change: ________________. I give these things to You and ask for
Your help. God, thank You for saying "Yes" to me in Jesus Christ.

(Meditation: Psalm 18:1-3)
O God, You are my rock and my strength. You are my redeemer and
my deliverer. You are my shield and my salvation. You are my stronghold
in whom I take refuge. You save me from anxiety and fear. You hear
my prayers and You deliver me. I praise You, O Lord, my strength
and my salvation.

(Meditation: Psalm 150)
God, I am grateful that You are the Mighty God, who created the
whole universe, yet You hold me in Your hands. I am grateful that
You are the Wonderful Counselor, who guides me when I turn over
my life to You. I am grateful that You are the Prince of Peace,
who takes away my fears and brings peace in my heart. I am grateful
that You are the Everlasting Father, who calls me by name each day
to new life with You. In Jesus' name. Amen.

(Meditation: Matthew 6:33)
God, the spiritual life has nothing to do with trying to be
greater than others. The spiritual life accepts all of life, cherishes
it, and celebrates it. The spiritual life is never alone, for it
is always in fellowship with You. God, I yield myself to You and
pray that You will strengthen my spiritual life. In Jesus' name.
