Lord, forgive me for the times when I fail to see your lovingkindness and your ability to transform any situation. Forgive me for meditating on my problems rather than on your power.
Father, help me repent from negative words and attitudes; give me the grace I need to meditate on your steadfast love and faithfulness instead. Bring verses and passages from your Word to my mind, so I can experience renewed thinking when I feel tempted to fall into a negative mindset. I pray you would transform my thought life with truth from Scripture. Today I praise you for your mighty power to do far more than I ask or imagine.
I pray for wisdom. As you renew my thoughts, enable me to speak kind and helpful words. Show me also when I need to remain silent rather than speak. “Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer.”
In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
