Let Us Pray

Dear Lord,

I thank you for this day.  I thank you for my being able to see and to hear this morning.  I am blessed because You are a forgiving God and an understanding God.  You have done so much fo me and You keep on blessing me.  Forgive me this day for everything I have done, said or thought that was not pleasing to you.  I ask now for Your forgiveness.

Please keep me safe from all danger and harm.  Help me to start this day with a new attitude and plenty of gratitude.  Let me make the best of each and every day to clear my mind so that I can hear from You.

Let me not whine and whimper over things I have no control over.  Let me continue to see sin through Your eyes and acknowledge it as evil.  And when I sin, let me repent and confess with my mouth of my wrongdoing and receive forgiveness.

And when the world closes in on me, let me remember Jesus' example -- to slip away and find a quiet place to pray.  It's the best response when I'm pushed beyond my limits.  I know that when I can't pray, You listen to my heart.  Continue to use me to do Your will.

Continue to bless me that I may be a blessing to others.  Keep me strong that I may help the weak.  Keep me uplifted that I may have words of encouragement for others.  I pray for those who are lost and can't find their way.  I pray for those who are misjudged and misunderstood.  I pray for those who don't know You intimately.  I pray for those who don't believe.  But I thank You that I believe.

I believe that You change people and You change things for good reasons.  I pray for all my sisters and brothers.  For each and every one of my family members and friends and their families.  I pray for peace, love and joy in their homes that they are out of debt and all their needs are met.

I pray that every eye that reads this knows there is no problem, circumstance, or situation greater than You.  Every battle is in Your hands for You to fight.  I pray that these words be received into the hearts of every eye that sees them and every mouth that confesses them willingly.

This is my prayer in Jesus' Name.

Amen.


Special thanks to Daisy C. for sharing this with me.
