When We Feel insufficient

prayer for week of May 16

O God, we come just as we are this morning as we begin another week serving others. Some of us may come with fear that our skills are not sufficient. We come aware that we may not be as successful as we would wish when working with others who struggle with illness and challenges. Yet, we begin another week grateful that you are present for us, just as we are. You are strength, hope, optimism, compassion, cheerfulness and determination. O God, help us, each one, to remember that doing our best is enough. When the chips are down and we feel as though we are at the end of our ability, You are there to encourage, and remind us, to simply hold on and keep moving, one step at a time. O God, we thank you for being ever present even when we feel isolated, insufficient and alone.
