Our desire is to be faithful to you today and every day. We want to be anchored to you so that we don’t drift away.
Please help us understand your wisdom and directions. Reveal the truth to us. Make the lies and traps that surround us clear to us so we can avoid their snares.
Your’s is the only voice we want to follow – please make us deaf to all others.
Your prophet Hosea tells us that our spirit of prostitution leads us astray – we give so much of ourselves away to things in our world which have no eternal value – cars, houses, sports, food, shopping for material things, television and computers.
Why do we so easily sacrifice our relationship with you, dear God?
We’re disappointed when our children follow our lead and get drawn into the mess of our culture. They are simply following our example. They see all of the ‘gods’ in our lives so they develop their own.
You are the only true God.
You deserve our devotion and our love.
Please continue to draw us closer, dear Father.
