Precious Lord, You alone are worthy of our praise… You alone are our Hope, an ever present help in time of trouble.
In You, I find my purpose. You’ve given new life, breathed breath into dead lungs, brought light to the darkness, created ways where there were none, restored broken hearts, restored minds, given second and third and fourth chances to us, even when we can’t fully understand Your sacrifice. You have been merciful to the most undeserving, those who have trampled Your name under their selfish feet.
You’ve allowed me to grow in Your ways, and refined me by Your fire, allowing my trials to strengthen my faith in You.
I trust Your sovereign will, Lord, and trust that You will bring all things together for good to those who love You.
Use me, Lord, the story of my redemption and transformation, which You alone have allowed. Let that story be shared with others who will hear and come to know You.
Help me to hold loosely that which You’ve given, knowing that You will always provide all I need. help me to align my desires with Your plans.
Lord, I bring to you my loved ones who don’t know You personally… I pray that You would give them a desire to know You, that You would prepare their hearts to learn about You. Open opportunities to share Your goodness with others, helping me to always be ready to obey you. Forgive me when I sin against You. Help me to be real with others. I pray that they would see You through me. Help me to honor You with all I think and do. Continue to refine me to become the person You’ve intended, and help me to love those whom You love.
Heal our land, heal our hearts and minds. Bring healing to others where healing is needed, restore that which needs restored, and refine which needs refined. In Your Holy and precious name I pray, amen
