Heavenly Father,
On this special day,
Added each Leap Year to accommodate
Our imperfect tabulation of time,
Please give me patience
When Your time line doesn’t match mine.
On this day, as always,
Please bless my efforts
To serve You despite my human imperfections,
For You can accomplish Your work
Even through my fumblings.
When inertia caused by fear or doubt
Holds me back from doing what You desire,
Please increase my trust in You
When I need to take a leap of faith.
Amen.
