Holy God, it is my sincere desire to mature in my walk with You and my faith in You. I want to become all that You have purposed me to be and be an active participant as You fulfill every promise You have for me; but sometimes it seems that You allow things that concern me and cause me distress to linger in my life. It feels like no matter how much I pray, You still allow these issues to vex me. I know this is a part of the maturity process but Lord, it is so difficult!
Father I ask that You strengthen me so I do not allow the fear; fear of what other may think or say, fear of what I have done or, what I haven’t done, to stop me from growing in You. Do not allow me to fall into the trap of pride and think I can come up with solutions on my own. Keep me mindful of how much I need You.
Father help me as I will allow patience and perseverance to have their perfect work. Remind me not move until I hear from You. I will rest, rely and recline my whole self on You, knowing that You not only care for me, but care about everything that concerns me. I pray in Jesus name. Amen.
