Father, let us not be so heavenly minded that we are of little earthly use. Let our minds be set on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. At the same time, may that focus make us more engaged here among people.

Make us like Jesus, who was often in people’s homes, in spiritual discussions that affected behavior and relationships, and never ignored how divine teaching applied to daily life.

Make us good citizens of the countries where we live, good mates and parents, good neighbors, good employers and employees. All because we are good followers of our Master. Amen.
