Humble God, we are guilty of placing too much value on things that have little worth and little value on those things that are true treasures.
Open our eyes to see our greatest treasure is relationship – relationship with you, with each other, and with your creation.
Help us redirect our attention and energy to caring for each other and the world you created, for that is where we will find the blessed life you intend for us. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
Thanks to Rev. Joanna Miller (Zion Lutheran Church & St. James Lutheran Church in Philipsburg, ON & Baden, ON) for contributing CLWR’s prayer for the Second Sunday of Lent.
