Father You know me and my heart. You know when I’m going to slip before I do it. You know what I’m going to say before I utter the words. You know my thoughts, so you know the actions that I will take before they are made.
Please forgive me for what I’ve done in the past and what I might do today. I pray for the strength to resist the urge to speak and act in any way that is displeasing to You. I pray for discernment to see clearly the ways, intent, and meaning of others so that I don’t get caught up in their nonsense. I pray for peace within. Amen.
No one said this journey would be easy. No one said being a Christian was a cakewalk. But it has been said countless times that it is all worth it. Keep your head up, your eyes focused, and your heart warm.
