This prayer is based on Psalm 90
Abba Father, You are the Eternal One–You have no beginning and no end. You are clothed in mystery. By the power of your word, You created from nothing all that our eyes behold: the majectic mountains, the vast seas and endless space. You created us from the dust of the earth and to the dust these clay bodies will return but You breathed into our nostrils the breath of life, Your Ruach, Your Spirit and we became living souls who will dwell with You in eternity future. Our life here on earth is short; like a watch in the night, like a day at work. It passes like an evening shadow, it disappears like smoke from a cheminey or steam over a kettle. We are here for a moment and then we are gone. Please give us wisdom that we may use our brief time wisely. Deepen our respect for Your awesome power. Satisfy us with your perfect love. Give us joy even in the midst of sorrow. Make us glad to be your children. Show us Your power by transforming our lives into the image of Your sinless Son and let our children witness this power. May they become your humble servants and love You with all their heart. LORD our purpose is to please YOU and to this end, we pray for success. In Jesus name. Amen!
