God of all times and spaces, as this day wears on, give us the opportunity to leave the office early.
Divine one, this isn’t our chance to slack off or ditch work. We work hard in our off hours and through lunch breaks.
But give us a few extra minutes to trade in time at the office for laughs with our friends or hugs with our loved ones.
This hour is one for us to remember the sabbath, rest, chill out, take extra breaths, and practice a well-balanced life.
(And God, since it’s also National Donut Day, we’re going to enjoy some jelly-filled donut goodness today too.)
I’m experimenting with praying through the National Day Calendar. While some of the prayers will be fun, others will be much more serious. Is there a specific prayer you would like to see? Note below. Thanks!
