We praise you for who You are. Search our hearts, try our thoughts and see if there be any wicked way in us and lead us in the way everlasting. Where we are weak, make us strong. Where we are broken, make us whole. Where we are discouraged, build us up.
Help us not only to be hearers or proclaimers of Your Word, but “doers” of Your Word. Teach us how to love, live and serve, choosing daily the more excellent way. “Give us the strength to remember our yesterdays, embrace our todays and hope for tomorrow.”
Help us to stand up for what is right whether popular or not. Help us to live so that You can and will use us. Help us to be less concerned about pleasing people and more concerned about pleasing You. Help us not to grow weary in well doing. Help us never to allow bitterness and resentment to consume us. Help us to lead by example with love and humility. Help us to have desires that are reflective of your will and purpose for our lives. Help us to obey the leading of your precious Holy Spirit.
Hear our prayer oh Lord, incline thine ear to us and grant us thy peace.
In Jesus’ name,
