Prayer for a balanced life

“Dear Heavenly Father,

There has to be more to more to life than just my work and duties.  I’m a responsible person and most of the time I feel very guilty for wanting to step back and actually enjoy the pleasures of life. So, to avoid this guilt, I don’t choose activities that incite this guilt. Doing this has made me very stressed and unhappy.

I have such a hard time finding that proper balance.  I need your wisdom and discernment of what to say: “No.” to so I will have more time for things I need to say: “Yes!” to.

Can you open my eyes to see what I am missing and how I need to fill in those areas?  Please show me what I need to omit from my schedule, too.

Help me to relax and really enjoy my downtime.  And in this relaxed state, I want to hear your still and quiet voice.  I have noticed that when things are crazy and hectic, I cannot.

I can also see that in this busy-ness, I am losing my ground because I am not connecting with you like I should be.

Lord, I love you and you are all that I need. Help me to depend on you more and myself less.

When my life is over, I don’t want to have any regrets that I didn’t spend time with the people who mattered most—especially YOU. In Jesus’ precious name, Amen.”
