Lord, take away my desire to be recognized when I am feeling overlooked and underappreciated, help me to discover true joy is only possible when I have completely forgotten myself. Amen.
Test me, O Lord, and try me examine my heart and my mind for your love is ever before me. I walk continually in your truth. You are my light, my salvation, my strength, what shall I fear? When plans fall apart, the unexpected arises, you are with me. When people attack me, you make them stumble and fall. When life crumbles, I will remain confident in you. For you will keep me safe, hear my cry, answer me, help me and teach me your way. Amen.
