Lord, the responsibilities are many and my task list is long.
I ask You not let my attention be so consumed by these that I miss the more important matters in my home. I don’t want the urgent to take precedence over the important.
Help me have the wisdom to identify the moments when my attention should be to the emotional and spiritual needs of my husband and children.
I don’t want to hesitate to put the dishes or clothes down to kiss my 3-year old, sit a child on my lap, or listen to what may concern my 11 year old.
I don’t want to miss these moments.
Help me, Lord, identify these when they happen.
