Thank you, Almighty God, for always being near. I know that there are many times when I am not aware of your nearness or of your providence at work or of your miraculous moving in history. Nevertheless, I do believe, dear Father, that you are near even when I feel alone and your presence seems so far away. In those times, dear God, please give me confidence and perseverance to stand through the times of trial so that I can also share in your times of triumph.

I praise you for your mercy and grace. Your steadfast and redeeming love never ceases. Your mercies are endless. Your love is new and fresh every morning as your Spirit fills my life and your hope revives me to face another day. Thank you.

O Precious Father, I call to you wanting you to know how important your love and forgiveness are in my life. Thank you for sending Jesus to show your love and pay the debt of my sin. Help me to live today as your child: may others see my joy and my passion for you as I seek to live for your glory.

Amen.

Image result for morning sunriseThank you, Father, that my life and my future are in your hands. Forgive me for the times that my plans are too full of myself and not consciously dependent upon you. Thank you for rescuing me from the messes I have made because of my failed plans built around my own foolish arrogance. I gladly place my life, and my future in submission to your will and plans.

Forgive me dear God, for letting my passion for your Kingdom and your character get push to the side. Awaken me each morning with a sense of passion for your work and your will for that day.  Father, I want to be a passionate seeker.  Please make me restless for your Kingdom as my home.

It amazes me, Heavenly Father, that you let me approach you, the Almighty and Holy God. I am humbled by your promise to be at work in my life. Forgive me for the times that I have been so full of myself that I have not acknowledged your presence and grace. Make me more aware of your providential care and your daily presence in me through your Spirit. Open my eyes and heart, dear Lord, that I may know you more fully.

Amen.

O God you are my God, and I long to bring you honor and glory. Please stir my courage to live victoriously and passionately for you. I trust that as I display your character and live for your glory that you will strengthen and uphold me by your mighty presence within me and by your arm of grace around me. In you, I have placed my hope. Search me O God, I know that my heart is not always pure and my ways are far from perfect.

Search me O God, for I need your purifying presence. Search me, O God, for I want you to set the course and destination of my life.

Give me faith , O Lord, during the times I am weary, discouraged and beaten down. Inspire me to trust in your great promises. Please give me courage, O Lord, when my faith wavers. Help me obey your word no matter how challenging it may seem or how discouraged I feel.

Amen.

I do praise you, Father, for you alone are God. I know that through good times and bad, my praise comes to you by the power of the Holy Spirit who lives in me and intercedes for me. Thank you for saving me and sharing your grace with me.

Dear Father, please make your presence undeniably known in my life and help me see your presence and mercy clearly. I want to honor you dear God, please make your guidance clear so that I can follow you boldly and faithfully in your will.

Father in the quietness of this moment, I consciously relax myself in your presence and place the concerns and cares of my heart before you. I confidently place my soul, my future, and my hope in your hands.

Please help me to know what time it is in my life and the role you want me to play at this stage in my journey. I want my life to be lived glorifying you.

I want to know You more fully and reflect Your character and grace more completely.

Amen.
