Lord,

Help me remember who You are in the midst of a world filled with so much hurt, hate and hopefulness. Help me remember whose I am whenever I begin to think I’m on my own as I try to get through today. Help me remember who I am whenever I begin to get my priorities mixed up. 

Help me remember You are actively involved in making Your will just as real on earth as it already is in heaven. Help me remember I belong to Jesus who gave himself in love as a way to unleash forgiveness, healing and new life. Help me remember that the Holy Spirit is at work in my life guiding me so that I live the life You envision for me.   

Help me remember Your goodness is all around me. Help me remember Your holiness is being infused into Your world. Help me to remember I can live with Your hope every moment of every day.

Yes, Lord, help me remember this and so much more – in the strong, strong name of Jesus.

Amen.
