We will deal with all kinds of things today, O God, because we live real lives as real people in relationship with other real people in the real world.
Give us grace that we might deal with reality in ways that are helpful and productive.
Give us focus that we might not try to escape from reality in ways that are unhelpful and destructive.
Give us discernment that we might know which parts of our reality are vital and which are not.
Most of all, give us faith that we might center our lives in you, the Ultimate Reality, and in Christ Jesus our Lord who shows us how to live such a centered life.
