Devotional: Prayer of purpose

Lord,  as I begin a new day, please make me single minded and determined to serve and honor you in all I do and say. As I embark on today’s journey, help me look past petty distractions, tune out the mindless noise, walk right past the pointless drama and the people who create it and remind me that you are my standard of truth and proper conduct, not them. Keep my eyes focused on the road, my mind grounded in your priorities and my heart completely enveloped in your joy and peace. Thank you most of all for the abundant grace to accomplish your purposes through my life, which, at the end of the day, is the only thing that matters to me. Amen.
