Dear Lord, I have to admit that distractions—even messages received on my phone—are interrupting the flow of Your work in my life.
My goals and my hopes are to be fruitful for You in the year and the decade ahead. Help me to “lay aside every encumbrance, and the sin that so easily entangles me” so that I can stay focused on Your purposes for my life.
I yield myself to You now, and I commit myself—as You give me strength and help by Your great grace, to keep my attention and energies fixed on Your priorities for me. Help me to stay focused on You, O Lord. Amen.
