Here is the prayer that closed this morning’s leadership huddle at the incredible hospital where I am so blessed to work:
This is the day that You have made – Let us rejoice and be glad in it.
Each person gathered here is a masterpiece designed by You.
Help us to remember our worth when challenging situations arise. Should we feel depressed or lacking joy in our lives, help us to remember we are fearfully and wonderfully made in Your image.
Our worry does us no good and only limits us, and You do more with worry than we ever could. So help us turn our anxious thoughts and situations over to You and trust that You are working. You work all things for our good because You love us. May we always be mindful that You are working in ways that we cannot comprehend, as Your ways supersede ours. And in this working You are continuing to mold us into masterpieces that fulfill Your purpose.
For the unseen, the increasing of our faith and our capacity to love, we give thanks in Your Holy Name. Amen.
