A Prayer for Today

The world says

Do more

Be more

Get more

Make more

But God says

Do justice

Be loving

Get along

Make a joyful noise

For this is the way of God

Abundant God, forgive us when we can’t get to enough.

Have mercy on us when we are never satisfied, always wanting that elusive “more” that we can never quite find.

Be gentle with us when we fail to love people because they have what we think we want.

Save us from ourselves when greed and envy began to eat us from the inside out.

Help us realize that we already have everything we need.

Our cup runneth over.
