A PRAYER for the Week
I Need You
by Diana Kerr
Lord, every time I’m sick or things don't go as planned you remind me how frail I am and how much I need you. I want control and predictability—it’s like I want to be God more than I want you to be God—but that is not something that any human truly has. When I cling to a mirage of control and it hurts my relationship with you, help me to let go of it.
Lord, I need you big time. This life is much more outside of my grip than I like to admit.
Keep me humble and focused on you. Remind me I am working and living for you and not for myself. Help me live joyfully, obediently, intentionally, boldly, radically, passionately. Help me appreciate that no matter what my intentions or plans are, the results are always completely under your control, not mine. Let me embrace the goodness in that truth instead of struggling with it or viewing it as a burden.
I love you, Lord. Amen.
Prayer from the Mountainside
by April Cooper
Heavenly Father, I love you, Lord, my strength. Thank you for loving me. And, thank you for your love that guides, teaches, and corrects me. Help me to love you with all my heart, with all my soul, with all my strength, and with all my mind. In your name I pray Jesus. Amen.
