Father, if I think back, take a good look at my life and am honest with myself, I have no reason to complain. If I take the time to examine where You brought me from and what You’ve brought me through I see the good You have shown me over the course of my days far out weights the bad. Thank You!

Even in the bad times You were working to mature and groom me in an effort to prepare me to become the person You created me to be. Today Father, I will not complain about whatever comes my way. Instead of complaining I will thank You for Your goodness and Your mercy, which is new to me every morning.

I will take time to consider Your goodness toward me and I will speak of Your love for me all day long. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

Prayer for Today

forgiveness from the past - tennis ballLenten season challenge: Read the scriptures that are referenced at the bottom of each prayer every day during this Lenten season!

March 13, 2015

Father, I want to ask for forgiveness. I have not focused on You, Your goodness or the kindness that You have shown me in the land of the living.

I have focused on the things of this world, my financial shortfalls and hopes and dreams that seem unachievable for me. I’ve focused on what I don’t have much more than I’ve focused on the good that You provide for me every day of my life. For this, I apologize and ask for Your forgiveness.

Today, I commit to focusing on You and the love, grace and mercy You show me and my family everyday.

In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen

Prayer for Today

           The sacrifice of the savior Lenten season challenge: Read the scriptures that are referenced at the bottom of each prayer every day during this Lenten season!

February 23, 2015

Father God, during Lenten season I am always concerned about what I’m going to give up so I can show You how sorry I am for the sins I’ve committed since the last Lenten season. I use this one thing as the scape goat for all my shortcomings and sins.

I use this season as a time for complaining about what I’m not doing or can’t do. I use this season as a time to compare my sacrifice to someone else’s. Never have I used this season to compare my sacrifice to the price You paid for my salvation by sacrificing Your son. Forgive me for trivializing what You’ve done for me.

Father during this Lenten season let me incorporate more of Your son’s character. Let me love more like Jesus. Let me forgive more like Jesus. Let me show compassion and grace to others like Jesus shows to me. Let me think of others more than myself, like Jesus did when He died on the cross for my sins. During this Lenten season, help I be more like Jesus. In Jesus name. Amen.

Prayer for Today

February 13, 2015

Father, allow your glory to fill my heart today. Let your peace prevail in my life. Let your joy overflow in my home and allow your grace and mercy to cover every aspect of my life. I feel that things going on in my life are trying to overtake me, but I will open my heart and mind to your peace, joy, grace and mercy, and I will find rest for my soul.

Everything is not going the way I wanted or expected it to go but I put my trust in you. Even though I don’t understand what you are doing, I know you have my best interest at heart and are working to prefect me in Christ Jesus.

I know you have a purpose and a plan for me. I know you have placed me on this path so I can fulfill your plans. I will trust in your unfailing love for me and will walk on this path until you tell me to do something else. I will trust your peace, joy, grace and mercy to override all outside factors that are vying for my attention. I will keep my eyes stable and fixed on you, trusting you to lead me safely on my journey to fulfilling your plans for me. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
