Thank you, Lord, for how you have given prayer as a means of healing, growth, perspective and direction. Thank you for being able to lift my soul to you, tell you what’s bothering me, remembering how Big you are and to again start thinking your Word.
To you be praise and honor for your gracious working in me to bring balance and stability, to help me process my negative feelings and to rest again in your love and grace, power and purpose. As there are things that I’m unsure about, not clear on and vacillating on, it is so helpful to lay them out before you, get your perspective and to be able to lay aside what I shouldn’t do, to forgive myself for failures and to listen to your Spirit’s comfort.
I praise you that you are my rock, my fortress, my stronghold and my defender. Nothing can get by you without your permission, you express, carefully though out and wise permission: you have specific reasons for allowing things we don’t like, you have a good plan, and we can trust you to carry us through the painful parts and out into a new green pasture. To you be honor and glory, Lord, in all.
I thank you, Lord, for all you have done in preparation for today, for what you will accomplish, and for how you will guide me in moving ahead. Keep me on track, help me to remember to check in often and to be wise and creative in decision making.
