Prayer for Friday

The world is full of abundance and opportunity,
but far too many people come to the fountain of life with a sieve instead of a tank car… a teaspoon instead of a steam shovel.
They expect little and as a result they get little.
~ Ben Sweetland

Before me, is proof of Earth’s abundance,
before me, is proof that I am most fortunate,
before me, is a meal, many millions can only dream of,
with hunger in their bellies that I am blessed not to feel.

May I savor each bite that nourishes me.
May I never take this ample bounty for granted.
May I use this fuel given to my body, wisely and well,
and never squander my blessed life on petty things.

Before me, is the proof of Earth’s abundance,
May I never fail to remember how truly blessed I am.
