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
at what will never 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...
