Prayer For A Purposed-Filled Life.

Father I know that you have a plan for each of our lives – and I understand that the main desire for every one of Your children is to know Jesus more and more and to live our life in a manner that is pleasing to You and exults Your holy name.

Father I know that Paul reminded us that as Your children we are to know You.. and the power of Your resurrection and the fellowship in Your sufferings.. and I believe that the way we cope with the various difficulties and dangers, heartaches and sufferings, problems and pain, trials and temptations is connected to the fulfillment of the many plans that You have purposed for us, in our lives.

Help me I pray to face the challenges of life looking to Jesus and relying on His sufficient strength and grace. Help me not to repay evil for evil but to love my enemy, and to do good to those that despitefully use me.

Help me more and more to develop the beautiful fruit of the Spirit – and may an abundance of love and joy, peace and patience, kindness and goodness, faithfulness and self-control overflow from my life into the lives of all I meet - until Christ is formed in me and I live my life as unto Him. May I reflect Your purpose in my life from this day forward to Your praise and glory – this I ask in the name of Jesus my Savior,

Amen
