Heavenly Father, Almighty God, Great Redeemer and Friend we thank You for the gift that is our lives. Each breath and each moment is a gift from heaven that allows us to live fully in the love of Jehovah Jireh who provides beyond the limitations of this world. This world is not our home for we have been promised a place in eternity: A place where we will be forever in the presence of God. But Lord, open our eyes in this life to know that You are always with us even in the darkness of this world. Help us to see how we can live as Christ lived when we see our brothers or sisters in need. Help us to not be so quick to dismiss the needs of Your people because how we treat each other is how we treat the Lord. Give us wisdom, strength, and patience as we journey this life towards an even deeper relationship with our Creator. In Your name we pray. Amen.
