God – Father, Son and Holy Spirit – thank You for drawing us to Yourself. Please reveal Yourself to us. Help us to know you and love You more deeply.
We are quicker to act on our own than to pray. Teach us to love Your Word and trust in Your Spirit that we may delight in Your will and walk in Your ways.
We put our hope in things that cannot be sustained. We look for happiness detached from You and then wonder why we don’t find wholeness. But in You, we find purpose and fullness. Orient us toward You, Lord God. Enable us to hope in Your promises and be content as they are being fulfilled.
Empower us through our weaknesses and failures that we may see Your incomparably great power at work in our lives. Strengthen us to depend upon You and walk with You more courageously.
We pray these things for every brother and sister who knows or needs to know You, to hope in You, and to be strengthened by Your power. Together, may we live and do everything for the praise of Your glory. Amen.
