Take a moment to refresh, refocus, and refine your faith.
God, what I offer you is of little worth. I can do nothing apart from you and contribute nothing of eternal value without your blessing. Lord, today I offer you what I have, broken and inadequate as it may be. Create new life from my dead-end efforts. Bring beauty from the ashes of my failures. Shine your divine light through the cracks of my flawed character. I boldly ask that you do me the honor of glorifying yourself and reaching the lost by redeeming my lackluster tributes. Little is much when you are in it, and I gladly give to you what little I have today. Amen.
"We have here only five loaves of bread and two fish," they answered. "Bring them here to me," he said. And he directed the people to sit down on the grass. Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke the loaves. Then he gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the people. They all ate and were satisfied, and the disciples picked up twelve basketfuls of broken pieces that were left over.
