My prayer (Luke 11:1-4)

Father.

When others see me today, let them see you. Don’t let your name be blasphemed because of me and my actions. May your name be honored as holy in my life today.

Father, give me your perspective. Don’t let me just think about what I need to accomplish today. Help me see what you are trying to accomplish today. Help me join in your work. Touch others through me, and let your kingdom come in their lives today.

Father, you know my needs. My physical needs. My emotional needs. My spiritual needs. Please provide them. Give me a humble heart that depends on you each day. May I not have a complaining heart, like the Israelites had in the desert. Instead, give me a heart of gratefulness for all you have provided. And again, a spirit of trust.

Father, what sins have I not confessed this week? Help me see them. And forgive me. Thank you for your grace. And when I see others around me, let me not judge them, especially those who have hurt me. Lord you’ve forgiven me so much. So give me a heart of humility when I look at those who have hurt me. 

My Shepherd, lead me in paths of righteousness. I want to honor you this day and every day.

In Jesus name. Amen.
