May 7 – Noon


Joseph had a dream, and when he told it to his brothers, they hated him all the more.

(Genesis 37:5)


Dear God,

You are the One who sees all and knows all. Just as Joseph’s brothers plotted against him out of jealousy in this verse, I ask that You help me to overcome any feelings of jealousy or envy I may have towards others. Help me to focus on gratitude for the blessings in my own life and to rejoice in the successes of those around me. Teach me to be content in all situations and to trust in Your plans for me.

Grant me the grace to love and support my brothers and sisters instead of harboring negative emotions towards them. Help me to be compassionate and understanding, and to always strive to build up others rather than tear them down. May my heart be filled with kindness and generosity, and may I be a source of encouragement and support to those around me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
