This Week’s Prayer 
Dear Heavenly Father, we know in our hearts that discontentment and greed can tear down relationships, but in contrast, we can see how contentment and generosity can build healthy and thriving relationships. As we go out into the world, let us remember that we are called to be salt and light, to shine the love of God in a dark and broken world. May we embrace contentment and generosity as integral parts of our Christian identity, and may we extend grace and compassion to those who struggle with discontentment and greed. We do all this in your Son’s name, Amen
