Prayer: Our God in heaven, we are grateful to you for your many mercies and for your constant care and protection in a world that is wrecked by sin. We find that we are often consumed with the uncertainty of our world and the concerns that we often face. We thank you that your eye is always upon us and that you are governing the affairs of this world in order to bring everything under the feet of your Son. We are blessed to know that you regard your people with love — a love that never wavers. Forgive us, Father, for failing to see things in a way that your Word tells us. Forgive us for taking our eyes off the things that are above and becoming enamored with the fleeting things of this life. Though we mentally know that you are working all things according to the counsel of your will we forget and then grow tired and weary. Help us to never grow tired of thinking your thoughts after you and grant us the sustaining grace we need in order to reach our heavenly rest. We pray this in the name of the Lord Jesus, the founder, and finisher of our faith. Amen.
