Need a little help

Dear Lord,

I don’t know why, but today I feel stressed and short of patience.  It doesn’t make sense, since you gave me a good night of rest, and I started my day in your Word and prayer.

Please give me patience and calmness of mind today, and let my “fuse” grow to unimaginable proportions, so that I don’t suffer my old self’s “short fuse” temper.

With Your help, I know I will reflect You as stated in Psalms 145:8, “The Lord is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and rich in love.”  This is how I want to be, not quick to anger and short on patience.

Fill me with your spirit, and guide me through my day.
