*Pastor’s Note: This was inspired by the daily Proverbs I am posting but in particular, Proverbs 4:7-13 and James 1:5.
Dearest Heavenly Father;
We come to You with open hands and an open heart and are humbled before You. We ask You for guidance during this and every day. Lord, please grant us wisdom, mercy, understanding and knowledge. Allow us dearest Father to see Your divine plan in the steps we take as we try and follow You and Your guidance, day by day. Lord, we depend totally upon You to guide us during the day, no matter what we may be doing during each day, we ask that we will hear Your voice guiding and leading us along the right paths.
Father in Heaven, we are not seeking fame nor fortune, only that our needs be met, but we do seek along with wisdom a greater faith and the ability to love more and more like You. Make our lives like an open book to others that are filled with examples and stories of Your love and mercy. Lord, help us with Your Holy Spirit to take to heart and spirit Your Word and help us to make it a part of our everyday lives that we might be an example of YOUR love to others around us.
Dear Lord, help us to be like the great leaders in the Bible that trusted in You and You alone to give them strength, guidance and protection. Reveal to us by Your Spirit what we must do and all the things we are meant to see as we continue on this journey and spiritual walk. We know that we ARE Your children and thus we are Your representatives in this world. Help us Lord, to always bring honor and glory to Your Holy Name in all the things we do for You.
Heavenly Father You have promised to freely give of Your wisdom to all who ask sincerely and fervently, without measure and we ask that Your wisdom, our faith and our hope IN You will be a bright Light to all those we encounter along our way, our neighbors as well as our brothers and sisters.
In all things we do, help us to ALWAYS bring You glory and honor, and we ask all these things in Jesus’ precious and holy Name! Amen and AMEN!
