Help me to slow down and take time for you.
To realize that you are not here for me,

Help me to understand that my purpose is not to establish a moral society,
But to glorify you.
Father, I pray that through each of our lives, our faithfulness to you will be reflected in
Guide and direct our thoughts, our words and our actions as we serve the citizens of
