Lord God Almighty, blessed be Your name in all the universe. Your praises drip from my lips as I lift my soul to You for care and attention. Father, grant me the strength necessary to wait for the unfolding of Your perfect plan in this life story I am living. Be ever present with me in Spirit so that I can move at Your designated pace especially when I am too eager to press ahead, getting in front of You. I know that my place is behind You, Jesus. I know that in order to follow You, I cannot let my emotions lead me. I seek You for the patience to slow down, to trust, and to settle my soul. May I not incorrectly interpret Your promptings, Lord. I seek You to fill in the gaps where I am weakest with others who will come alongside me so that I can continue upon the straight and narrow path. Remind me to carve out the time with You that I need in order to have the clarity and wisdom to carry me to the next mile-marker. For my deepest desire is to become what You intended me to be, Lord. So, I invite You to raise me up, to mold me, to shape me, and to make me Your own in order that this journey is not in vain but made complete through the glory I bring You in every moment. Under the power of Your word in Jeremiah 29:11-14 and the authority of Christ Jesus, I lift these prayers to Your heart O God.
