Father, as I journey through life, may I always remember that You hold my world in Your hands. When I face trials, let me lean not on my own understanding, but trust in Your sovereign plan.

I give You praise for my past and for my future. But, most importantly, I praise You in the present situation, whether good or bad. For I put my faith and trust in You always to work every situation out for me, for it is all a part of my destiny, in Jesus mighty name, Amen!
