I said a prayer for you today
And know God must have heard
I felt the answer in my heart
Although he spoke no word.
I didn’t ask for wealth or fame
I knew you wouldn’t mind
I asked him to send treasures of a far more
I asked that he’d be near you
At the start of each new day
To grant you health and blessings
And friends to share your way.
I asked for happiness for you in all things
Great and small,
But it was for his loving care
I prayed the most of all.

Earthly things can never satisfy the human heart. Only God can give us the kind of happiness our hearts long for. Hence, St. Paul says, ‘Let your thoughts be on heavenly things, not on the things that are on the earth’. And Jesus urges us not to store up treasures on earth but to make ourselves rich in the sight of God. What makes us rich in the sight of God is not what we own, or even what we’ve done, but what we are.
