Lord Jesus help me through your Holy Spirit to look beyond my present circumstance to see the glory of the future in store for me. Satisfy my desires with your abiding love. Provide for my needs and a little more with which I can show your generosity. Thank you for loving me as I am. Thank you for lifting me to better understand your greatness. I bring my prayer in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride of life—is not from the Father but is from the world. And the world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever.” (1 John 2: 15-17 ESV)
