Smile and Peace

Father, you bring an amazing smile and sense of peace to me every time I think of you. Thank you.

You have so richly blessed me that my joy overflows. Thank you.

My sense of gratitude is strong and deep and I want everyone to know that it’s driven by your Grace and your Son. Thank you. 

Father, help me to be assertive today without compromising on my values; your values. 

In Jesus name, Amen.

Father, lead me

Father, help me to hear your voice, feel your presence, and discern your word. 

Help me to recognize right from wrong and choose right. 

Help me to focus on you and focus on people. 

Father, guide me in the ways I should go. Lead me. Lead me down the path of truth and righteousness. Lead me down the road of salvation. 

Strengthen me to do your will, even when it's the more difficult of ways. 

Broaden my perspective and help me to think more eternally. Open my eyes to what could be and should be. Help me not to conform to the pattern of this world, but transform me with the renewing my mind. 

Yes, father. My answer is yes. Whatever you ask, my answer is yes. 

In Jesus' name, Amen.

Father, revive me

Father, you have shown me what needs to be done; the way of life. Give me the courage, strength, and endurance to complete the work you have given me to do. 

Paul notes that when I am weak, you are strong. Help me to remember that your power is made perfect in weakness. 

Revive me in ways only you can  

Thank you, Father, for loving me and giving me a purpose only I can fulfill. 

In Jesus' name, Amen.

Father, show me

Father, show me where you are first in my life and where you are not. 

I want continuity and consistency, not disconnection and chaos.  Reveal to me where there is a disconnect.

Change my heart. Correct my desires. Redirect my efforts and energy to what is pleasing to you. 

Help me pursue Godly wisdom morethan worldly wisdom. 

I love you and am so grateful you are my Lord and Savior. 

In Jesus name, Amen.
