Holy, holy, holy God, I place myself in your presence; and rest in the promise of your grace.
My mind and my spirit are cluttered with many thoughts and feelings that threaten to pull my attention away from you. Let me unclench my fists and release these things:
I release all that I have done today–whether for good or for ill.
I release all that I feel like I should have done today, but did not do.
I release all that I need to do tomorrow.
I release my fear. I release my anxiety. I release my impatience. I release my pride.
All of the thoughts, all of the feelings that pull me away from you, O God, I release.
Fill me now with the joy and the peace of your deep, loving and abiding presence.
I offer all of myself to you, our One God, Creator, Redeemer, Sustainer.
