fotolia_138704835_larger

Lord, I know You are always with me. I will not be shaken, for You are right beside me. No wonder my heart is glad, and I rejoice. My body rests in safety.

You are my comforter and my guide. When the world becomes confusing and sometimes crushing, You are my Way of Life.

For Your Word says that You will show me the way of life, granting me the joy of Your presence and the pleasures of living with You forever. I have no reason to fear. I am not out here all alone because You are the Way of Life.

As long as I follow You, I am always heading in the right direction.

Thank You, Heavenly Father, for a made up mind; for a mind that is constantly taking into consideration, “What would my Savior have me to do?” I will not allow my inner thoughts to lead me astray. I draw all that I need from being in Your presence.

I am never on this voyage alone.

Even if my father and mother abandon me, You, Lord will hold me close. Teach me how to live, O Lord. Lead me along the right path…

I will forever give Your name the praise.

I will Praise the Lord! For You have heard my cry for mercy. You are my strength and shield. I trust You with all my heart. Mighty King, You help me, and my heart is filled with joy. I burst out in songs of thanksgiving.

Thank You for being my Way of Life.

This I pray in Jesus’ Name. Not my will but Your will be done. For Your Glory! Amen.

    (Intentional Prayer) Pray the Scriptures: Lord, I come to you today as a reminder to myself that I have authority through Jesus Christ. I use Your mighty weapons, not worldly weapons, to knock down the strongholds of human reasoning and to destroy false arguments. I destroy every proud obstacle that keeps me from knowing You. I capture my rebellious thoughts and teach them to obey Christ. Any negative thoughts or thoughts that are not pleasing to You, O Lord, I cast them out in Jesus’ name. They have no authority over me, but I have authority through Jesus Christ. I am free. I am delivered. I am made whole. When I feel lost or confused, I will turn to Your Word and gain strength, knowledge and understanding. I will seek deliverance because it is for those who ask and want it […]

Lord, I want to do all that I can to live in peace with everyone. Help me to recognize when the intent is not to cause these feelings to emerge within, but that a greater purpose and good is the end result.
