Morning Prayer

“Whatever my eyes desired I did not keep from them. I did not withhold my heart from any pleasure. For my heart rejoiced in all my labor; and this was my reward from all my labor. Then I looked on all the work that my hands had done and on the labor in which I had foiled; and indeed all was vanity and a chasing of the wind. There was no profit under the sun.”

[Ecclesiastes 2:10-11]

Father God,

Today, the pressure will be on to chase after things that will have long-term consequences. In my heart, I know it is wrong, but my flesh will drive me to cheat, lie, steal, mistreat, or manipulate. I have two choices, push back or give in. I pray to make the right choice.

Amen
