Lord Jesus Christ,
November is about to end and on this first day of work and school, we are saddled with so many burdens and worries we need to hurdle this week.
We worry so much, thinking a lot of bigger things that could happen: bigger problems, bigger tasks, bigger responsibilities that compel us to think so big in our own terms, forgetting we have a greater God in you than all our problems in life.
Give us the courage to think more of you, of relying in your powers through simple things like Daniel and his company who chose to just have vegetables and water than partake in the banquet of Nebuchadnezzar and defile your holy name, O Lord, with unclean food.
Let us be more generous inside, to offer you our broken and weak selves like that poor widow at the temple who put two coins in the collection box.
Remind us Lord to have more of you always, and less of ourselves, less of the world in this life for it is in little things or even nothing can we gain everything. Amen.
