God, grant us the will to wake to the light of day before our screens beg us to snooze or scroll.
Grant us the grace to be humans—the way we were designed to connect, even when the virtual world seems to be safer and easier.
God, grant us the grace to know we are truly seen and loved, even when our likes, follows, shares are less than we would like and tend to dictate our worth.
God, grant us the ability to be still and listen to your voice when competing voices charmingly strive for our attention.
Grant us the strength to sit with the discomfort of our pain, even when mindless scrolling and binge-watching are easy aids to our mind,
God, grant us wisdom to ration the hours, minutes and seconds of our lives in a world where crafted algorithms govern our lives.
Grant us the grace to embrace our messy, less-than-ideal lives, even when glamourous pictures of others’ success tempt us to envy.
God, grant us wisdom to use our voices in ways that empower and not tear others down.
God enable us to embrace imperfections, the wait, the journey, and the beauty for what it is, before they are masked, filtered and liked.
Enable our hearts to rest in the truths that matter, even as the world sways from hashtags to hashtags.
God, may our hearts and bodies learn to delight in rest when our screens seek to deprive us of sleep and quiet.
God, help us be grateful for all the means that connect the world and enable us to be responsible wielders of this power.
God, grant us grace to live amidst limitless access to entertainment that we may not lose ourselves in utopian imaginations.
Grant us strength to be a better master of instruments and time that we may wilfully restrain from indulgence.
