Father God, I pray the part of the Lord’s Prayer that says, “Your will be done, on Earth as it is in Heaven” often without thinking about it, but today I am asking for Your will to be done in my life.
Father, You know what good, right is and perfect for me, because every good and perfect gift comes from You. You know exactly what I need and when I need it. You know how to show Your strength, power and righteousness throughout my life. Today I commit to submit to Your overarching authority in my life. I permit You to have Your perfect way in me.
Lord, when my flesh starts to scream because it is uncomfortable, comfort me by your Holy Spirit. I’ve been praying for ________________________________________ (Fill in whatever you’ve been praying for. Some examples: a closer walk with God, a healthier lifestyle, a mate, a change of heart in your children, a financial blessing, deliverance from past pains, etc.) I know the first step to getting my prayers answered is for Your will to be done in my life.
I have tried to achieve what I want my way and it hasn’t worked. I have tried to fulfill my call and my purpose the way I thought was best but all I’ve done is messed up and left pieces of my dreams shattered throughout my life. NO MORE! Now God, I will do things Your way.
I will not listen to unwise council. I will keep my eyes steadfast and fixed on You because You are the author, the perfecter and the finisher of my faith.
In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
