Ecclesiastes 1

Read chapter

Dear God,

thank You for Your Word and for this chapter. It reminds me of the cycles of life and the pursuit of meaning and fulfillment. Help me to remember that apart from You, everything is meaningless and a chasing after the wind. Guide me in seeking true purpose and satisfaction in You alone.

I confess that I often find myself seeking meaning and fulfillment in things that do not satisfy. Forgive me for putting my hope in temporary and fleeting pleasures. Help me to fix my eyes on You and to find my ultimate satisfaction in knowing You and living out Your purpose for my life.

I pray for wisdom to discern what is truly important and eternal, and for the strength to let go of the things that distract me from You. May my heart be turned towards You, and may I find fulfillment in living in alignment with Your will.

Thank You, God, for Your unchanging love and grace. I trust in Your faithfulness and goodness, even in the midst of the fleeting nature of life. May I find my rest and joy in You alone.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.
