A Prayer For Today

Bob Young
[permission is given to reprint with credit noted]

Dear God, I think today of that saying, "here today, gone tomorrow." When we see tragedies beyond human control (like natural disasters), horrors (like humans killing their own children), and people dying from cancer and car wrecks, that reality is really brought home. I pray that in the days I have on this earth, you will give me the strength to stand firm. Let nothing move me from the tasks and purpose you have for me. Give me the desire to always give myself fully to your work, and remind me that my labor is not in vain (1 Corinthians 15:58). And I pray for peace, comfort, and direction for those whose lives are changed by the reality of "here today, gone tomorrow." In the name of Jesus I pray, amen.
