If then you have been raised with Christ,
seek the things that are above,
where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God.
Set your minds on things that are above,
not on things that are on earth.
For you have died, and your life is hid with Christ in God.
When Christ who is our life appears,
then you also will appear with him in glory.
Jesus, help us to see the things that are truly important.
Help us to seek after holiness.
Help us to think about you.
Show us the way that leads to eternal life with you.
Bless us this day, O Lord.
Call us to your service.
Jesus be the light of our lives.
Shine on us and show us the way.
Father in heaven we give you praise this day.
You are holy. You are wonderful.
We don't know how to praise you.
You are the best we can imagine with our limited minds.
Thank you for creating us.
Thank you for your love.
Help all the sick today.
We put all that are hurting today into your hands.
Heal them, O Lord.
Find a job for my friend, Mary. Bless her, O Lord.
Thank you for hearing our prayer.
