Jehovah-Jireh, our provider!
Forgive us when we moan about the trivial
and take so much for granted.
We think we have little,
and yet we are blessed with so much.
Without thinking, we become indulgent and wasteful,
when others are desperately hungry and poor.
Remind us today of the plight of those who are out of our sight
and so easily become out of mind;
those who cry themselves to sleep and no-one hears;
those who are forgotten, neglected, and in need of love.
Remind us today of the power of generosity,
thoughtfulness and radical acts of kindness.
May what I do today, demonstrate my thankfulness
and recognition that I have been blessed,
and so should be a blessing to others,
for love’s sake,
and so Your kingdom, Gracious God,
may come on earth,
as it is in heaven. Amen.
