Almighty God, we come before you with great humility and meekness in search of your will so that we may walk and abide in it. Heavenly Father, we come before your throne of grace in this time of need and with great boldness and confidence request your help. There are so many things going on which make no sense and are beyond our ability to handle. We therefore come to you and ask for your wisdom, guidance and understanding.
Dear God, we have tried so many times to figure everything out on our own and do things our way. We have determined what we want and forced our will upon you. For those times we admit our failure to trust in you with all our heart and lean not upon our own understanding. We repent of those many times we have tried to usurp your authority and attempted to do what only you can do. We are truly sorry and humbly ask your forgiveness.
Heavenly Father, we are surrounded on every side by people and situations which are troubling, distressing, frightening and aggravating. We ask you for patience to endure hardships, for faith to carry us through the darkest night, for peace in the midst of the storms and for the ability to never doubt you. We stand in your presence with hands extended and with hearts open to receive your Words which will enable us to withstand and to endure.
Precious Lord, we give you our hearts, minds and bodies to use as you will. Lord, we have no life other than what you have given us. We have to purpose without what you have called us to and desired for us. Lord, we ask you to fill us with your presence and flood our minds and hearts with the glory of your love and grace. We are the clay and you are the potter. Lord, mold us into the men and women you need us to be and we want to become.
Our Father, you are in heaven and HOLY is your Name. You alone are worthy of our praise and our devotion. You alone are worthy of our heart’s full attention and you alone are worthy of our love. Father, you have made us who we are and have given us all we have. You have blessed us in realms far above our mind’s ability to comprehend. You alone are our God and you alone are the one we adore and desire to fully give our heart to.
Look upon us with favor dear God and see past our mistakes, our stubbornness and our weaknesses. Father we ask for your forgiveness for all the times we have strayed from your will. Father we ask you to look upon our hearts and purify us with your holiness. Father we ask you to tenderly lift us up, heal our wounds and gently reassure us that no matter what, we will always be your children. Please help us be children in whom you are pleased.
Thank you Father for all you have done for us, given to us and entrusted us with. Thank you dear Lord for being patient with us and for helping us rise up to become the men and women you desire us to be and to be the mighty army of faithful warriors you need us to be in this dark world. We give you all the praise and we give you all the glory for all you have done and to you we give you our hearts and all the love within them. Thank You and we love you.
