Prayer: Dear Lord, in the world today we often lose sight of your teachings and instead are distracted by trivial matters that we feel we have the right to complain about. Help us instead to see the beauty in this world that you have created for us. Help us to show your love even when faced with situations we rather not be in. And help us to speak your words to others and praise your name through fellowship and faith. In your name we pray, Amen.
Question: How can we be more like Zechariah in praising God in spite of the daily obstacles we are faced with?
