Lord,

I see so many things every day. 

I see good, things and joyful things. I also see horrible, wretched and evil things. Yet in spite of all I see, far too often I don’t see what I need to see most of all – You.

So Lord, help me see beyond me to You. You – who creates all that is. You – who reaches out into my life. You – who never gives up on me because of what I do. You – who patiently takes me where you want me to go. You – who seeks me to be in a personal, deep and eternal relationship. You – who calls me to care for Your people. 

Yes Lord, help me see beyond me to You. Because when I do, I see what matters most of all. 

I pray this in the strong name of Jesus. 

Amen.
