21st June 2013 – Thank you Lord for the money and possessions you have put into my hands. I again find myself needing to affirm that it is yours and not mine.

18th June 2013 – I thank you Lord Jesus that I don’t have to strive to be ‘somebody’ in order to feel good about myself. I am so grateful that in you I already am ‘somebody’ and all that counts is to be the me you are calling me to be. Thank you that you make life to be full of meaning; that you are the answer to every question ‘Ecclesiastes’ raises.

7th June 2013 – Lord God, everything you made is good and I celebrate your wonderful gifts of beauty, work, the creative arts, marriage, food and drink. I do not look for meaning in these things. I receive them gratefully as your gifts. But only in you do I find meaning and sense. All your gifts make wonderful servants but terrible masters, so help me to view them as I should.
6th June 2013 – Thank you Lord for education and for educators. These are among your finest gifts. But help us to not search for meaning in the gifts, but in you the Giver of all good things.

Help them to keep you at the centre of their instruction, and enable us all to keep you right in the middle of our learning.
