Invocation by Chaplain Fred S. Hollomon:
So much to do,
So little time.
A mountain of issues
For us to climb.
What's my priority?
What should I do?
Some more important
Than others, it's true.
I need discernment,
Lots of insight;
So I won't find myself
Not sleeping at night.
Grant me Your wisdom,
Help me to know
Where most of my thoughts
And energy should go,
Help me discover
How my days should be spent,
So I won't have to wonder
Where all the time went.
Thank You, Lord, in Jesus' Name,
