God, this is probably going to be a selfish prayer. I guess that’s my usual prayer. Nine times out of ten it seems is just, “Help me.” I don’t know what I’m doing sitting here, in my cube, surrounded by technology, millions of people available to talk to, and innumerable amounts of information. I don’t know where I’m going either. I just need your help.
I need to know and feel that where I am is where I’m supposed to be, and if it’s not that I know that too. I need your peace. I need your direction and guidance especially when I’m not paying attention. I need your willingness to be.
thank you for providing us
with the gift to share our talents.
Provide our community, our nation, our world
the fortitude to provide work for all
which is decent and fair.
Make us faithful stewards
of your creation
to enhance the human dignity
of our global family.
We ask this in the name of Jesus,
who lives and reigns
with you and the Holy Spirit
now and forever.
