Father, let my mind be filled with thanksgiving that all is in Your control. Let my heart rejoice that You have plans for me, not plans to destroy me, but plans to prosper me. Even though I can’t see what those plans are, let me rest in the knowledge that You already have everything planned for me.
When You prosper me, let me share those gifts with others unselfishly. When you grow me, let those draw near to me that can help. Above all, let me be a beacon that people will see which will draw them to You.
Fill my heart, mind and limbs to do the difficult tasks that lead to Your glory. Fill my soul with praises in the knowledge that You care enough about me that you have numbered even the hairs of my head and You have numbered my days. Let me glory in the truth: “Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you BY NAME, you are MINE!” Isaiah 43:1Return to Prayers for Strength and Guidance
