Psalm 49: 16-17
DayLight Prayer – Lord, I know that we believe that money keeps us completely secure. It does in the physical world, at least to a degree. Of course it doesn’t have much effect on our human nature. Money doesn’t cure hate, avarice, lust or cruelty. It wont’ help us at all at our last breath. Father, teach us to be concerned more with our relationship with you and others in our lives. Help us to know that money can make us comfortable, but only Jesus can save us. Only Jesus will be with us when we breathe our last. Thank you for your great mercy. Amen.

DayLight Prayer – Forgive me Lord for the times when I arrogantly think I have the need to judge others. Help me to keep my judgments where they should be, contained by your spirit. Help me to love instead. Love casts out evil, and ignores lies which are evil. Help me too, I pray, to seek truth. Amen.

DayLight Prayer – Lord, The news today is slightly overwhelming, and it makes me concerned for the children of the world. I know that if we adults could be more like children, who love unconditionally (unless they are taught differently), then many of my concerns about the news would dissipate in a quick manner. Help us adults to remember what it means to have the humility and love of a child. Help us to stop judging one another because we are different. Help us to understand that you made us different for your divine reasons and purposes…purposes to which our aim should be to live into. Lord, have mercy. Amen.

Let the light of your great presence shine on and into them. Amen.

Isaiah 43: 11-12

Let no one be discouraged, because when you speak, things change. People are saved. Situations are rectified. Fire is sparked. Peace is spread. Love is felt. Speak Lord. Amen.
