Prayer for Daily Use

Sunday, February 13, 2011 (All day) - Sunday, February 20, 2011 (All day)

Gracious and merciful God, you have given me wonderful gifts – gifts of intelligence, of training, of friends and family. You have blessed me beyond my imagining.

Sometimes, however, I use your blessings only for myself, rather than also using them to help others.

I pray that you would make me more aware of the needs of others – people across the living room, across the street, across the state. And as I become aware of their needs, help me find ways to share your blessings with them.

Whether it is befriending a troubled child, tutoring a struggling adolescent, serving at a soup kitchen, giving money to help poor people far away, or praying regularly for the church and its people, help me see the ways I can use your gifts and blessings to make this world a better place.

Help me follow Jesus more faithfully each day.

            I pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.
