Walking with God

Dear God,

I miss You when I don’t sense Your presence.  But I know that You are not withdrawing from me, that it is I who have become preoccupied with mundane matters.  I would seek to bring to mind and heart only those matters that count for something in the grand scheme of things.

Alert me to the important.  Keep me safely thinking, saying, doing, those things that are consistently helpful to my brothers and sisters as well as kind to them.

May my brothers and sisters, and I, together walk into the sunlight with You today.

Amen.

Kind

Dear God,

This day is the first day of the rest of my life.  May I make it worth something, to the world, to my husband, to my friends, to me.  May no word of complaint cross my lips.  There is always plenty to praise.

Help me to reach out to anyone who needs a kind word today.  Let me be a conduit for Your love.

Thank You.

Amen.

Kindness

Dear God,

Help me to be kind to myself.  Sometimes I think of others’ feelings more than my own, and this is not an optimal way to be.  Help me to soothe my ruffled feelings, touch Your healing, and be well.

Your healing is a blessing beyond belief.  Thank You for reaching toward me with all of Your love.

Amen.

Tolerance / Kindness / Love

Dear God,

I am getting more sensitive to living right.  Help this sensitivity not to go overbroad.  I want everything smooth and easy around me, but frustrations do happen.  Help me to be tolerant.

Tolerance will go a long way toward kindness.  And to be kind leads inexorably into love.  Help me to be loving today.

Thank You.

Amen.
