Dear Heavenly Father, sometimes we are jealous of what others have. While we know that they may be achieving great things in ways not pleasing to You, we allow ourselves to be envious of what they have.
Lord, let us not envy the lifestyle and successes of others, but let us turn to You always as our guide and mentor. Let our light shine, Father, so people may see our good works which will glorify You.
You said, what a man sows, so shall he reap. So help us to sow seeds of righteousness and love. May we be generous at all times to those in need. May our happiness come from You and not from earthy things. Bless us, oh mighty Lord, Amen.
Do not let your heart envy sinners, but always be zealous for the fear of the Lord. There is surely a future hope for you, and your hope will not be cut off. Proverbs 23:17
