Psalm 19:12-14

Clean the slate, God, so we can start the day fresh! Keep me from stupid sins, from thinking I can take over your work; Then I can start this day sun-washed, scrubbed clean of the grime of sin. These are the words in my mouth; these are what I chew on and pray. Accept them when I place them on the morning altar, O God, my Altar-Rock, God, Priest-of-My-Altar.

Another Monday. Another work week. Sometimes Mondays are hard to face after a weekend filled to the brim with activities and errands. All you want to do is hit the snooze and roll over for a few extra minutes before the craziness begins.

What if, instead of dozing for a minute, you recite The Message translation of Psalm 19:12-14? It is the perfect prayer to start your week off right.
