God, as we come before your presence, we are all in need of one thing or another. Oh, what joy in you we have found, and we know that you are our friend in the time of our needs. God, as we are blessed to live and see another day, please help us to put our physical temple to the side and ask that people see the spirit of God that dwells within us. It has never been about us but always about you. Amen.
