Lord, did you ever get distracted? Was it ever difficult for you to concentrate? Did you ever lose your focus?
You are my example of keeping the goal firmly in mind. You set your face steadfastly toward Jerusalem. You never wavered doing the Father’s will, even in the sweat of blood.
Make me like you. Focus my mind. Center my heart. Firm up my decision at every step of the way. Let me never turn to the right or to the left.
Be glorified in me.
Our Father in heaven, thank you for the blessings of this day. You renew your goodness over us constantly.
Bless our loved ones far away from us, and draw them near to you.
Make us sensitive to wrongs in the world, especially to the greatest of these: rebellion against your will, ignorance of your Word.
We put ourselves in your hands to be instruments of peace, envoys of reconciliation to an estranged world.
Let Satan not hinder us, nor distractions keep us from our main task.
Blessed be your name in all the earth, as the heavens praise your glory. Amen.
