1 Samuel 17.23
David heard him.
God, may we never be oblivious to what is going on around us, may we never get too caught up with what is going on in our own busyness that we miss noticing great opportunity to honour you, to bless you, to love on you and love on our world. may we see everything - good or bad, positive or negative - as a once-in-a-lifetime chance for you to use us in making it good, great and beautiful. may we make sure to not let whatever is going in and around us - no matter how overwhelming and defeating - drown out the screams, the silent cries for help, the very evident needs that stare us down right at our face everyday. may we always keep our ears and hearts tuned to your voice, lord. thank you for your spirit.
