This week’ prayer is one I need daily:
Grant us, Lord, not to be anxious about earthly things, but to love things heavenly;
and even now, while we are placed among things that are passing away, to hold fast to those that shall endure;
through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
Sit with this prayer for a minute, won’t you?
I don’t think I can add a thing to it; it says it all so well.
May we learn to love “things heavenly” and hold fast to what endures this week.
