Dear Heavenly Father, We pray that you will not let us get caught up in the world. Please let us not look at the world with envy or want, But let us look at you. When we have needs and fears, Let us look to you first, For in you we can find what we need and we can find courage to face each day. When calamities befall us, help us know that you are near us. When things go wrong, help us to know that you are near us to help put things right. When we are confused and do not know where to turn, open our hearts and minds to your truth, your love, and your wisdom. When we are tired, give us added strength to move through each day. Oh Lord, We wait for the day when we may live in your love in Heaven. For this moment, give us a lift in spirit so that we can be your example here in this time and place. Let us not be anxious about this world or this life for in you we find so much security and so much love. For it is in Jesus' name that we humbly pray Amen and Amen.
