Good morning, Father.
Thank you for this beautiful Sabbath morning, and thank you for the words of encouragement from my husband this morning. That felt very, very nice! 😀
Lord, I thank you for motivating me, getting me working on several different projects already this morning. Please help me work on the right ones, in your timing, Lord. Help me find some ways to occupy myself in the evenings, and help me to sleep easier. Also, Lord, I pray that you help me develop a better work routine, and find ways to stay motivated so that I can FINISH some of my projects and increase my self-confidence. Thank you, Lord!
Ephesians 3:12-21 ERV
In Christ we come before God with freedom and without fear. We can do this because of our faith in Christ.
So I ask you not to be discouraged because of what is happening to me. My sufferings are for your benefit–for your honor and glory.
So I bow in prayer before the Father.
Every family in heaven and on earth gets its true name from him.
I ask the Father with his great glory to give you the power to be strong in your spirits. He will give you that strength through his Spirit.
I pray that Christ will live in your hearts because of your faith. I pray that your life will be strong in love and be built on love.
And I pray that you and all God’s holy people will have the power to understand the greatness of Christ’s love–how wide, how long, how high, and how deep that love is.
Christ’s love is greater than anyone can ever know, but I pray that you will be able to know that love. Then you can be filled with everything God has for you.
With God’s power working in us, he can do much, much more than anything we can ask or think of.
To him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus for all time, forever and ever. Amen.
Lord, I thank you for your boundless love. Thank you for choosing me! I give my body, my mind, my heart, my time to you, Lord, and I ask you to use me for your will and purpose. Help me learn to not resist you — neither your healing touch nor your guiding hand. Help me to hear and obey your voice, and give me the courage to follow you wherever you go. Work your mighty power in my life and in the lives of my husband and my children, Lord. Amen!
