Prayer of the Day - When I Need Mental Rest

Oh Papa,
I can't seem to stop my racing thoughts!  My mind is all over the place with all the things I need to do today.  Whether they are causing fear, worry, or just an unsettledness, I need Your peace in my mind today.  I take a timeout; breathe deeply, "Abba, I belong to You..."  Wrap me in Your presence today, Holy Spirit, comfort and calm me - You are my Helper and Comforter!  Flood my mind with Your perfect peace that passes understanding, Jesus - You are my Prince of Peace!  I yield my to-do list to You, Papa - You are my God of order!  Please bring Your clarity to my list today.  Help me bring efficient order to it to be a good steward of my time and a source of Your life-giving joy to my family today.  Give me eyes to see Your blessings, Your dares to joy; being willing for You to interrupt my plans and to-do's to receive and minister Your encouragement to those around me (including those I have not met yet).  You are good.  And I trust in Your good plan for me today.  In Jesus' name I bring all things to You, Amen!
