All-wise Heavenly Father, I come in Jesus’ Name to thank you for the encouragement You give in Your Word for when I forget or ignore that You know the future and my every move. You have designed all situations to prosper me even before they happen. “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not evil, to give you a future and a hope” Jeremiah 29:11.
Forgive me for sometimes being utterly foolish by not giving control to You, the life-giver and master of every destiny, and for not looking to You for sustenance and guidance.
I ask You to take control of my life, the lives of my immediate family, and the lives of those who come to mind who are my brothers and sisters in Christ.
I pray Paul’s prayer in Colossians 1:9-12 for all of the people just mentioned. “For this reason we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; that you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; strengthened with all might, according to His glorious power, for all patience and longsuffering with joy; giving thanks to the Father who has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light.”
Thank you that I can come to You in Jesus’ Name to ask You to take hold of every facet of my life and transform me to be more Christ-like. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
