2 Corinthians 10:12-18

Loving Divine Family,

We find relief in your presence as we enter your sacred prayer space. We feel the pressures of society to boast about our own abilities and accomplishments. But you remind us that all we have comes from you. You encourage us to remain humble, though our blessings are large in the eyes of beholders.

Loving Creator, you made us in your image. You desire that we live in harmony with each other and creation. Thank you for the reminder not to compare ourselves to others or to compete with others. May we bring you honour and glory.

I remain humble in your blessings today, O LORD, and thank you for…

Encourage us through the words and actions of others. May they see your achievements in our lives and praise you for your goodness. Let the words of others show us how your blessings in our lives are also blessing others and you. We will sing of your love and blessings forever.

With joy we praise you!
