God our Father, sometimes it seems the demands of life loom larger than we can comprehend, and we get lost in the fray. Help us be aware of the simplicity that comes from living our lives intentionally from the inside outward rather than from the outside in. Support us with your Holy Spirit so that we are intentionally living to love you and our neighbor in all or our decisions. May all that we do this day be done in your name and for your sake. In Jesus Christ our Lord we pray. Amen.
