A Prayer of Contentment: (adapted from Pastor C. Finnestad)

“A tranquil heart gives life to the flesh, but envy makes the bones rot.” Proverbs 14:30

Dear God,

I seek contentment. Let me be grateful and happy with the life You give.

I seek discontentment too. Lead me to growth and compassion.

I am Your masterpiece. –Ephesians 2:10

Let me be content that I am uniquely Your creation.

You have blessed me greatly in so many ways.

I don’t want to take Your provision for granted. I want to enjoy Your generosity.

When it is raining let me take in the smells and experience Your nourishment.

When it is sunny let me see the beauty and experience Your light.

When it is hot let me see warmth.

May I be content about the things I can’t change and discontent about the things I can’t tolerate.

Guide me and lead me as I figure out the distinction between the two.

Help me to learn, improve, and develop in the areas that matter.

Keep creating me and making me a better me.

Bless me with contentment. Bless me with discontentment.

In Jesus name, Amen.

“Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the LORD that will stand. The fear of the LORD leads to life, and whoever has it rests satisfied; he will not be visited by harm.” Proverbs 19:21,23

Pursuing a peaceful content heart, Pastor Larry
