Lord, show me what matters.
The world invades me with its events
and infects me with its values,
Sometimes I find myself easily overwhelmed.
Trivia, too, engulfs my waking hours, devours my energy,
Pressing matters are not always important matters.
Lord, deliver me from confusion about
What really matters.
Let what matters to You matter to me,
Let my heart respond to Your Holy Spirit,
Let my choices bring You glory,
You really matter to me.
