A Prayer for a Fast From Media

A Prayer for a Fast From Media

BY JON TSCHANZ God, you know that we have many distractions at our fingertips.

We know in our heads that you love us unconditionally, but often we take roads and journeys to earn that love when you already have called us good, called us enough and called us loved.
