All The Rest Does Not Matter

Oh God,
 When I have food, help me to remember the hungry.
When I have work, help me to remember the homeless.
When I am without pain, help me to remember those who suffer.
And remembering,
help me to destroy my complacency and bestir my compassion.
Make me concerned enough to help,
by word or deed, those who cry out
for what we take for granted.
As I have been thinking of simplifying things, this is
my prayer, because if I don't put HIM and others first,
all the rest does not matter.
But Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness;
and all these things shall be added unto you.
Matthew 6:33
