Concerned with What Concerns You

Father, I spend much of my prayer time
talking to You about
my concerns,
big and small.
And that’s good!
You welcome me, and
You encourage me to bring my concerns.

But I also know that You are the One who put me
here and now,
in this time and place.
I am here to
concern myself with
Your concerns.

Father, awaken me and
keep me alert,
to the dear people and
eternal matters
that surround me every day.

Eternal matters
regularly masquerade as
daily matters and
small things.
People are Your concern.
People are to be my concern.

Teach me, Father.
Guide me by Your Spirit.
Help me to fill my
here and
Your love for the
individuals around me every day.

Hymn: Prayer of Intercession
