Holy God, Creator of all things, giver of life and source of meaning and purpose; teach me to look to You this day and to seek Your will alone …..
In a culture geared to goals and objectives, to climbing ladders and celebrating human accomplishments, we are reminded in Your Word of the vanity of it all. It does not bring happiness, rest, joy or true fulfillment. How sad it is that so many don’t realize that only life lived in Your presence is true life indeed ….
As I journey this new day, help me to see the hollowness of vain striving, to recognize cheap rewards for what they are, and keep me from self-serving and worldly enticements I pray. Guide me that I may seek only to do Your will ….
And what is your will for us? To act justly, love mercy, forgive quickly, and walk humbly with You. Lord, give us all the strength and wisdom to do these things. In the blessed name of Jesus I pray. Amen
