Lord God Almighty, let the power of Your Spirit reign in my life. When the way is unclear before me, Lord, draw me to wait upon You before taking another step. Teach me how to listen, Lord. Instruct me in the night seasons so that I can avoid wandering into enemy territory unaware. Jesus, You are my good Shepherd. You are there at the end of the path of this life even as You are walking along with me now. My times are in Your hands, Lord God. Show me how You wish me to use every waking moment. Protect my mind when the darkness of night overtakes me because You are my shield. Take every thought captive to Your goodness and truth. Speak through me, Lord. Calm my restless soul until the peace that You offer is embedded in every fiber of my being. May I lay down my life in order to follow You, Jesus. Under the Word You have given in John 16:33 and the authority of Christ, I humbly pray.
“I have told you these things,
so that in Me you may have peace.
In this world you will have trouble.
But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
John 16:33, NIV
