Great provider, thank You for blessing us with so much! Each breath, each sunrise and each moment of life is a gift. We pray for a thankful heart. We pray for a gracious heart. And we pray for a humble heart. “Beneath our clothes, our reputations, our pretensions, beneath our religion or lack of it, we are all vulnerable both to the storm without and to the storm within” (Fredrick Buechner).
Comfort us with the truth that You are always with us, that You will always love us regardless of the works that we do or don’t do, and that You will always redeem us every time that we fail. Help us to believe in the miracle of God’s never ending love.
Give us the wisdom to trust You, O Lord, so that we can let go of our fear of failure and our hunger for success. Reorient our perspective so that we can see that the living bread from heaven is for all of us, and that it will never run out. Let us know that we can live this life in the abundance of all that God provides.
