What's gonna be the boss of me today, Lord?
my schedule? the past? anxiety? boredom?
fear? fantasy? others' expectations? pleasure?
my work? self-doubt? routine? a relationship?
food or drink? guilt? debt? laziness? loneliness?
shame? grudges and resentments?
I've got a lot of bosses, Lord, and just as many masters:
free me from working for any
who keep me from serving you;
keep me from laboring for those
who can't help make me whole...
free me from plugging away
for what can't bring me peace...
Be the boss of me today, Lord:
let faithfulness be my supervisor;
honesty, my manager;
justice, my director;
and charity my overseer...
Be the boss of my life today, Lord:
the master of my words and deeds
and of all my heart's desires...
