Lord, so frequently in our life we lose sight of the things that matter. Help guide us between right and wrong, aiming us towards faithfulness and gratitude. Just as You were with the Israelites, both before they were freed from Egypt and after when they felt alone in the desert, You are with us too. Give us the wisdom to know sometimes life is amazing, to know that sometimes life gets difficult, and above all, to know that You are always with us anywhere between these two.
We also pray to know Your love and all that You have given us along this journey of life. Even when life is good and You are to thank for it, we too frequently forget to give You thanks. You are the source of all our blessings, and we are flawed. However, we know that through Your Son, His sacrifice, and extravagant love that we are forgiven.
Help us be extravagantly generous in love, just as You are and guide us along the path of life as we strive to be like Your Son.
In His name, amen.
