Heavenly Father, I repent for grumbling and complaining when bored with life's monotony and mundane situations. Please help me to see each day as a gift. Teach me to number my days and not take the breath in my lungs for granted. I must admit that I can grow weary at the daily tasks before me, and the lack of excitement in those small, simple activities can cause me to walk in discontentment, laziness, and pessimism. I need Your grace to strengthen me to run the race set before me so I can finish well, for Your name's sake. No matter what You have called me to do here on this earth, I want to do it for You and not the praise of men. I want to use my time wisely and give You all the glory in everything I say and do. I want to work heartily and joyfully for You all the days of my life. Thank You that You have given me Your Spirit to convict me when I complain or when I am ungrateful for this blessed life You have given me here and now and the life to come where I will get to spend eternity with You. I long to serve You with every fiber of my being! In Jesus' name, Amen.
