March 9 – Evening


By the sweat of your face you shall eat bread, till you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken; for you are dust, and to dust you shall return.

(Genesis 3:19)


Dear God,

You have said in this verse that we are dust and to dust we shall return. I am humbled by this truth and reminded of my mortality. Thank You for the gift of life and for the opportunity to serve and worship You. Help me to use the time I have on this earth for Your glory and to fulfill the purpose You have for me. May I always remember that my time here is limited, and may I live each day with intention and perseverance.

I pray for the strength and wisdom to live a life that is pleasing to You, and for the courage to face my mortality with hope and faith in Your promises. Help me to be mindful of the brevity of life and to prioritize the things that truly matter. Thank You for Your love and grace, and for the assurance that in Jesus, I have eternal life. May I live each day with eternity in mind. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
