A Prayer Prompted by the Overall Message of Matthew 14

Heavenly Father,

I understand that some of my desires are good, some of them are bad and some of them are neutral.

As for the wrong desires, please help me to be content without ever having those desires satisfied.

As for the neutral desires, the simple and basic needs that I have, please help me to trust you for their fulfillment.

Beyond that, help me to desire you most of all.

Help me to guard and cherish my time with you.

Help me to hunger and thirst for righteousness.

Help me to long to be more like you, to want what you want and to work toward your desires and your will for me.

Make yourself my ultimate source of satisfaction.

In Christ’s name,

Amen
