Prayer for Simplicity and Contentment

Almighty and all powerful God,
We fill our lives with work, projects, and pleasures and we have become weighted
down. Lord, we confess that we too often align contentment with mediocrity.
We have allowed our lives to be anchored to a debt of materialism rather than
Christ. Let us unclutter our lives, unbind our hearts, and seek you first.
Liberate us, let nothing separate us; let nothing come between our soul and our Savior Jesus Christ, In whose name we gather and in whose name we pray. Amen.

Hi Rev Mom, this is a great Blog. I saw a bumper sticker during Christmas that reminds me of the fourth line in your prayer today: "We Should Celebrate the Creator, Not the Creation". V/r Clay R. (Note, name above is wrong).
