A Prayer to Let Go the Earthly and Cling to the Eternal

I’ve been meditating all week on this prayer from the Book of Common Prayer that seeks God’s help in letting go of worry and worldliness and clinging to things eternal:

Grant us, Lord, not to be anxious about earthly things, but to
love things heavenly; and even now, while we are placed among
things that are passing away, to hold fast to those that shall
endure.

-BCP Proper 20 (Contemporary)
