Trustworthy Heavenly Father, I come in Your Son’s Name to thank You for the peace and comfort I can have by calling on You and yielding my life to You. John 14:27 “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”
In light of the fact that You tell me in Your Word (the Bible) that the enemy is looking to destroy anyone and anything He can (1 Peter 5:8c “Your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour“), lead and direct me to walk close to You. My flesh is weak and undependable. I ask to be filled and controlled daily by Your Holy Spirit. Galatians 5:25 “If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.”
May I have every thought and desire be directed by You. Your Word (the Bible) has much to say about how in You alone can I find rest from my burdens. Teach me to draw near to You and Your purposes for my daily life.
It is my desire that You direct me in such a way that I experience and enjoy Matthew 11:28-30. “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” With an open, yielding heart I bring this prayer to You through the Name of Jesus. Amen.
