Prayer: Inspiration for Changing My Life
Lord God Almighty, the path You have set before me is a long and narrow one. There are bridges to burn, mountains to climb and oceans to cross. I know it’s not going to be easy but the toughest roads lead to the most beautiful destination, and with You by my side, through it all, I will make it to Your heavenly kingdom, where I will dine with You at Your table.
Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord. Plans for peace and not of harm, to give you a future and a hope.
Isaiah 40:31 But those who wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles. They shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not be faint.
As I seek You in the expectation of changing my life around, trials and temptations will be launched at me. The evil one will always try to throw me off-course, but set my paths straight, Oh Merciful Saviour, allow me to see beyond those distractions and to focus on what lies ahead. Give me strength as I battle the evil forces around me, fully equipped with Your Armour, Oh God.
Ezra 10:4 Arise, for this matter is your responsibility. We also are with you. Be of good courage, and do it.
Protect me as I go out into this harsh, cruel world that is constantly changing and trying to influence me. I will overcome it, just as You overcame the grave. I want to know You more and more, Precious Lamb, draw near to me. I request Your Holy presence. Sometimes I may fail You, Lord and at those times I need Your love, grace and mercy the most.
Psalm 46:10 Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!
I am a work-in-progress, Lord and all I ask of You today is that You cleanse my heart, shape me and mold me into who You want me to become. Reveal Your great plan and will for my life. Use me to fulfill my destiny and spread Your message across the land. I declare and decree that from this day forward, Your never-changing, genuine, undying, never-failing love, will envelope my heart and I will gain compassion, hope, faith and love for humanity and I shall follow in the footsteps of Jesus Christ of Nazareth! Amen and Amen!!
