A prayer about Goals

When I want to set goals for my life

Heavenly Father,

I don’t want to meander through life doing whatever seems right at the moment. I want my life to count for something! I know that if I don’t set goals, I won’t achieve much of consequence. Please give me the discipline to set wise goals, both short term and long term, but help me never to forget that the most important goals of all are eternal. Material success and fame are only temporal, but my relationship with you and the results of service to you will last forever. May I plan for eternity, thinking carefully about what will endure. Teach me to filter my earthly goals through the lens of eternity; then I will know the goals that matter. How can I please you? How can I draw close to you? When you are my focus, my earthly priorities will fall into place.

We are always confident, even though we know that as long as we live in these bodies we are not at home with the Lord. For we live by believing and not by seeing. . . . So whether we are here in this body or away from this body, our goal is to please him. 2 Corinthians 5:6-7, 9
