Dear Heavenly Father, We thank you for being here for us and always taking our prayers. We know that you are a loving God and we are sometimes ashamed of ourselves for neglecting you and not showing yo the respect and love that you always deserve. Help us to keep our spiritual connection with you always and to maintain a daily conversation with you through prayer, always seeking the answer to the puzzles of our lives through your guidance and love. And keep us on the true and narrow road to redemption as we continue our life's journey.
We often find ourselves lonely and in despair with the things that we see happening around us, and we pray that you will give us the courage to meet the challenges we face with calmness and love, not with anger and frustration. Much of the world these days is filled with so much violence, pain and suffering and we know that only with love in our hearts can we help those in pain and help them find your light and warmth while also turning this world of ours back toward you.
Lord, we know that everything that happens in this world has a reason and that it is not always for us to understand, but help us to realize that if we keep you at our side and listen for your guidance, we will know what to do. And never let us forget that our Savior, through his horrible death on the Cross, died to deliver us from our sins and give us the opportunity to to live with you through Him forever. Let us take full advantage of that promise through living in the loving and caring way that He would expect and that you demand. Keep us fully up to the challenge and let us never do anything that does not make you proud of us, for while we know that you are a loving God, we also know that you can display your wrath when it is necessary. We ask in the name of Christ our Lord, who expects us to go forward as a beacon of light in a world that often doesn't know Way, Amen.
