In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, dear Lord, hear my prayer.
My precious Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, thank you for this beautiful day, I give you all the praise and glory for all that YOU have made. Thank you for the gift of Life - the blessings You have given me - my children and family and friends - my home and for providing all of my needs. Today, I hand everything over to You to handle. I know You can do a much better job than me. Help me to let go of the past and move on to the future. In Your Holy Name I pray, AMEN.
PSALM 9:9-11 (NIV)
9 The LORD is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble.
10 Those who know your name trust in you, for you, LORD, have never forsaken those who seek you.
2 THESSALONIANS 3:1-5 (NIV)
1 As for other matters, brothers and sisters, pray for us that the message of the Lord may spread rapidly and be honored, just as it was with you.
2 And pray that we may be delivered from wicked and evil people, for not everyone has faith.
3 But the Lord is faithful, and he will strengthen you and protect you from the evil one.
4 We have confidence in the Lord that you are doing and will continue to do the things we command.
5 May the Lord direct your hearts into God’s love and Christ’s perseverance.
