Father we covet Your blessing so that we can be a blessing to You by being a blessing to others. Please teach us, condition us to understand when we are at the end of our rope or at wits end, there is less of us but more of You. When feel the grief of loss, may we see the glory to be gained, for sorrow is a masterful teacher. When physical deaths separates us temporarily from those we love, help us convert our grief into love for others. As we grow older and experience more and more loss like hearing, sight and memory, remind us daily that our true wealth is in Christ and our future is in heaven. Father, increase our appetite for Your word; enhance our passion for worship and our love for people. Help us to love others the way we love ourselves. Abba Father, help us get the inside right and this will put the outside in proper perspective. Give us the humility to cooperate instead of compete. Grace us to rejoice when we are criticized, slandered or even persecuted. Help us overcome evil with good. Give us a sense of victory even in the midst of apparent defeat. Enable us to see the Martyrs and Saints cheering us on. Let us hear the applause of heaven give us the deep assurance that Jesus is our faithful High Priest and He is praying for us. In Jesus name, I pray. Amen!

Father, I rejoice in Your honor, I revel in your majesty, I glory in your almighty power. You are most definitely my strength and my deliverer. My attempts to praise You are always feeble and fall far short of my own expectations so I have trouble believing that my praise is pleasing to You. I admire the mountains and You created them with your hands: You were the potter and they were the clay. You sculpted the seas out with your hand; You are an Awesome God. You power exceeds our imagination by an infinite degree. If I had my wits about me, and saw things as the angels see them, I would bow down now and worship YOU, most likely in silence. I do bow my head and bend my stiff neck, I do prostrate myself before YOU; You are the Creator and I am the creature; You are infinite and I am finite; You are all secure and I am insecure. I am the sheep and You are my Shepherd, lead me in the paths of righteousness for the glory of Your Son and deliver me from evil for the good of my soul. Grant me the wisdom to listen closely to Your voice and help not to make the mistake of my ancient ancestors who tempted You and tried You again and again by their stubbornness and unbelief. My life goal is to honor YOU, to learn obedience and to bear my cross for Jesus sake. In Jesus name I pray, amen!
