James 1:5–But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him.
Father, I ask for Your wisdom for each one preparing to attend the conference this year. I pray that our priorities will mirror Yours, that we will be sensitive to Your leading, and that we will rest in You.
Remind us how easy it is to be caught up in the excitement, the anxiety, the flurry of details, that we make others less important than our to-do list, and we tend to leave You out of our planning. Calm our hearts, bring details to our minds when we need them, and help us to accomplish those tasks we must before leaving our jobs and families. Remind us to have gentle words for those around us with different needs and priorities. Remind us that our families aren’t secondary to the conference, and neither are You.
Thank you for this opportunity to show grace to others and receive it from Your hands.
