Gracious and loving God, you know no time, but we are finite. Help us to sense the urgency and put the limited ticks of the clock to the best use for your glory and honor. Organize the times for everything under heaven–time to live, time to die, time to build up, time to tear down, time to rise up and time to rest. Lord, forgive us for wasting the precious time you allow us. Help us prepare to be ready and up to the task you have for us. I ask these things in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of the time, because the days are evil.” (Ephesians 5:15-16 ESV)
