Envy


God,

I tried. I hope I pleased You. My best friend drove over this evening to take me for a ride in her family’s new car. It’s a Cadillac, Lord! You know how long I’ve wanted a Cadillac. I told you I’d be happy with our old car until You said it was time for another one. But, God, my best friend! I swallowed a big gulp of pride. “When’s my turn?!” I really am pleased for my friend, but it was difficult showing it. Thank you for keeping my tongue from saying anything unkind. Forgive me for my envy.

                                   Amen and Good Night, God


This prayer taken from
Amen and Good Night, God: A Book of Evening Prayers
