Heavenly Father, please help us to keep enriching our knowledge of you. Lord, so often we set our gaze so low. We fill out minds with things that you have made and given us but spare no thought for you. Forgive us for these many times, and restore in us a grander perspective. Help us to receive all things with thankfulness to you. Help us to love you as our Father, the giver of every good thing. May we cling tightly to you our protector in times of need or fear. Keep us hungering for your word, where we see more and more of your infinite character. May your word flourish in our lives, causing us to live generously, reflecting your love, pursuing patience, holding to the hope of your promises in Christ.
