Heavenly Father, we start this week with an overwhelming
sense of thankfulness.
You’ve blessed us with so much.
Besides food and shelter, You provide us with
opportunities that most people in the world can’t imagine.
Lord, help us to remember that we’re stewards of Your blessings.
If we’re not careful, we will collect them like treasures,
more focused on accumulating them than on sharing them.
Open our eyes to the needs around us.
We’re glad You don’t expect us to meet every one of them,
but we often grow discouraged because the needs are so great.
Show us what to do THIS DAY.
Whether the need is physical, emotional, spiritual or relational
help us to meet that need with the love of Jesus.
We ask it in His name, Amen.
It’s my honor to pray for my Monday commenters throughout the week. I’ll be checking in on some of you privately in the coming weeks.
