A Prayer for Thursday, January 26, 2012


O God,

Work on our perspective today.

It is our default setting to think of ourselves as the center of everything; after all, we see the world from inside ourselves and it seems that everything revolves around us.

Remind us that it doesn’t.

Remind us that you alone are the center of the universe.

Remind us that everyone else has the same default setting that we do; they tend to see themselves as the center of it all.

We know that we can’t see the world as you do but we also know that, through your Spirit in us, we can move a lot farther toward such seeing.

Shift our perspective a little bit today that we might become less anxious and more trusting, less selfish and more selfless, less closed and more open, and less frightened and more adventurous.
