My Father who sees all and orchestrates the details of my life in order that beautiful music of praise is heard even in difficult circumstances, conduct the affairs of my heart as I walk into the unknown concerning the future. Lord, bring strength to my weakest areas especially in times of great suffering. Shield me from unnecessary pain if it will not be useful in growing my character into Christ-likeness. I look to You, O Lord, for clarity in leading me through every step of this tricky dance of life. Help me to finish well. Enable me to finish strong. Encourage me with the words of those who have gone before me into a territory unknown to myself. Help me, Holy Spirit, to not be afraid. Show me how to move in rhythm with Your grace so that all glory is Yours to claim. May peace wash over my soul as You bless me with Your presence in prayer. May kindness take over my actions as Your Spirit uses my hands in service to Your will. Under the protective covering of Isaiah 41:10 and the authority of Christ, these prayers are my daily offering in reverence to my God.
Don’t panic. I’m with you. There’s no need to fear for I’m your God.
I’ll give you strength. I’ll help you. I’ll hold you steady,
keep a firm grip on you.
Isaiah 41:10, MSG
