In times of trouble, may the LORD answer your cry.
May the name of the God of Jacob keep you safe from all harm.
Father God hear my cry for help. Fear, shame, and guilt threaten to consume my life. Provide me with courage as I face the challenges of life and guide my steps as I walk through all of life’s trials. Set my focus on Christ Jesus, not only as my example, but more importantly as my hope.
Teach me not to boast about my accomplishments or my strength, rather teach me to boast about Jesus and his life. Make me sensitive to the work of the Spirit as I seek to overcome the destructive work of the flesh in my life.
Thank You Father for not giving up on me. Fill me with a knowledge of Your will as well as with spiritual wisdom and understanding so I am able to live a life worthy of Christ Jesus, who is my Lord and Savior. In his name I pray. Amen.
