Thank You, heavenly Father, for the beautiful gift of life You have given to those whom You love. I call upon Your grace and mercy to lead and guide me through the sorrowful valleys and treacherous mountains that suddenly appear on the landscape of my life. Ease the conflict of my heart, Lord, as I continually seek You for comfort and understanding that I have no access to on my own. As I wrestle with my own emotional responses to unpredictable events, Jesus, help me to stabilize the storm of chaos that swirls within my soul. Let the spiritual strength You provide testify to the goodness of my Savior. Lift the fog of sorrow that eclipses the joy of my heart and replace it with the peace that only comes from Your holy presence. In the assurance of Your unfailing love, I will take the next step. For there is purpose beyond my understanding if only I remain in the shadow of Your grace. Magnify the gratitude in my heart, Lord, as I let Your praises fall from my lips for the life that You have given me speaks of Your love. Under the truth of Psalm 69:30 and the authority of Christ Jesus, these prayers are a fragrant offering to the King of Kings.
