Hello, Father.
Thank you for all the awesome mercies, the power of your amazing restoration and healing! Thank you for creating myself and my Mate just how we are, Lord. I am very content and very grateful! Please help me to be humble and teachable, Lord, and to remember the TWO simple things that I want out of this life — and to LET GO of everything else. Nothing else matters. Okay, so just to reiterate my two things, FIRST is to be found faithful to the end, and SECOND is for my loved ones to be FREE and to have a personal relationship with you. Beyond those, nothing else matters — not money or anything it can buy, not success or a good income or even to have someone faithful to me or any of those temporal security type things. Trouble is, the human heart and all its crazy reactive emotions tend to derail us from our focus at times. I need you, Shepherd. Every step of every day, I need you. Thank you for choosing me. Help me to hear and obey your Voice more all the time, growing forward. Amen.

 
2 Timothy 2:22-26 ISV

Flee from youthful passions. Instead, pursue righteousness, faithfulness, love, and peace together with those who call on the Lord with a pure heart. 
Do not have anything to do with foolish and stupid discussions, because you know they breed arguments. 
A servant of the Lord must not argue. Instead, he must be kind to everyone, teachable, willing to suffer wrong, 
and gentle when refuting opponents. After all, maybe God will allow them to repent and to come to a full knowledge of the truth, 
so that they might escape from the devil’s snare, even though they’ve been held captive by him to do his will. 

 
Lord, I strongly desire to stay away from “foolish and stupid discussions” and I pray that you open my eyes to the wasteful use of my own tongue. It really does seem like it is MOSTLY my tongue that creates problems, although I do recognize that even when I manage to hold my tongue, sometimes my attitude takes away some lightness and joy and FREEDOM from myself and perhaps even those around me. Since my second top goal in life is for those whom I love to be free and light, I ask you to train me to be aware of my effect on others, how I can be a good influence, adding joy and lightness to their lives, and to STOP doing things that rob people of joy (including myself!) I want to be a promoter of freedom, joy, and lightness. I have my drumsticks and my cheerfulness and my optimism. I have been Little Miss Sunshine since I was 5 years old, and I wish to not waste any more time being the opposite. Lord, please set your Light upon me, and help me spread lightness among your people. Amen.
