At the beginning of the week, spend some quiet time with God.
God of laughter, song and dance, in your goodness we experience the fullness of the joys of life. May we worship you with gladness and live lives marked by smiles and laughter. And even when trouble comes knocking, may we rest in your hands, knowing that, like a shepherd, you will gather us in that we might again experience joy. In Jesus name we pray, AMEN.
Close with the Lord’s Prayer, speaking it slowly and deliberately.
