Heavenward

Lord,

I praise you for salvation I never deserved,

I thank you for your love and presence,

your mercy, protection, and continuing companionship,

through the valleys and mountains in my life.

Grant my eyes to look heavenward,

redirect my gaze

whenever its pulled to things passing away.

Let me look forward,

press forward,

casting aside all that I can’t take into eternity,

walking on water,

stepping in faith.

Conform me to your image,

let my life express your loving kindness,

keep me in the eternal now of your presence,

to be a light and fountain of living water

wherever you place me in this world.

Unfurl my fingers from my earthly treasures,

and give me a wise heart for shrewd stewardship

that will bring you glory and further your kingdom, not mine.

Show me how to invest in my heavenly bank,

sharing treasures of love, kindness, goodness, and truth

all around.

Let me never forget

that I may rest all the while in your finished work,

that you are the author and finisher of my faith,

and by your grace I will seek you

and follow you all my days

from this world to the next.

I bless you Lord.

Amen.
