God of grace and mercy, we praise you for the blessing that we have been given to live in this great land. We thank you for the many blessings that we have within this land- our many freedoms, our incredibly rich culture, our ability to serve as a leader in the world, clean water, access to decent healthcare, public education, indoor plumbing, and the millions of things that we take for granted every day.
Forgive us, Lord, for the times that we take these things for granted. Forgive us for complaining about what we don’t have rather than seeing just how much we do have. And help us, O Lord, to recognize that all we have comes from You, belongs to You, and is to be used for Your glory.
Give us hearts seeking to use all that we are and all that we have to build Your Kingdom on earth as it is in heaven. In Jesus’ name. Amen. (KML)
