Good morning, Heavenly Father. I just want to thank you for getting me through the past week. There were some surprises along the way – both good and bad, but you’ve taught me to accept these things and know that you’re in control. There are times when I wonder what new test you have planned for me. Tests are really challenges that draw us closer to you for advice and help.
You’ve now given me another week to look forward to. Give me the stamina I need to do the things I’m required to do. Help me with the conflicts and decisions that come my way. Be with me in all that I say and do, so that no one will misunderstand my words.
I know that with each problem that arises, that none of it is new to you. You’ve been through it all. You’ve seen the peril we bring upon ourselves. You know how we mess up. You understand our suffering, our needs and our goals, yet we are forever making wrong choices, thinking the worst, trying to go it alone – but you always remain the same. Your love is unconditional and your gift of salvation is everlasting.
Thank you for your gift of life. Each day is a new treasure from you. As I draw nearer the end of my days, I get that much closer to you and your promise of heavenly bliss. Help me to use my time wisely – to help others and let them know all about the things you’ve done for us. Give me energy, strength and perseverance to run the rest of my race.
In Jesus name, I pray. Amen!
