Dear Lord, no matter what tasks I do today or what other things come up, help me spend time loving You and loving all other people that cross my path.
This is the most important thing and what life is truly all about.
Help me learn to be self sacrificing, and to sacrifice out of love.
Help me delay my own gratification and serve others humbly.
I don’t want to waste any of this precious time you have given me, Lord. It is the most valuable and worthy cause to live for others. Help me to be the light in this dark world and to point all others back to Your eternal glory and everlasting light through the loving actions of my life.
Help me to live in joyful expectation, fully present in each moment of my life.
In the mundane or boring moments,
in the time of my work day,
and in the exciting or joyful moments,
help me to feel Your presence, You walking along with me.
When You call me to follow You, help me to say yes with joy and trust.
To deeply know that You will provide all that I need, You are all that I need.
When the waves toss me around, help me to cling to You, reaching out my hand knowing that You are always there and in control.
I love You first, Lord and all others second. This is what’s most important: serving and loving You, Jesus, and then all others. In You lies my joy.
In your holy name, I pray, Amen.
