Prayer for Contentment in Jesus

God can help us to be content - whether we have little or we have much!

Lord, I want to be content. But it's so hard! This world is so good at telling me I need just one more thing. Buy this, buy that! But they don't bring me happiness.

I'm sure the person hearing this feels the same way. We go after more and more of totally unsatisfying things. But God, You know we really need: that true love and happiness that comes when we pursue you.

Show us how to be happy with what we already have. with the people and the things and the job. Help us love our jobs, to do them for you, so that all of our time wouldn't be wasted.

We love You. So much.

This is my prayer for me and for you.
