Loving Father, keep me from covetousness, carnal behaviour and envying the wicked, who seem to have everything in this world, while so many of Your children, so often seem to be so deprived. Help me to live my life in spirit and truth, so that by dying to self, I live for Christ, and thus live my life of the saving of the soul… my soul-life which will produce a great reward, in heaven. AMEN.
Father, I confess that I worry about many things, rather than trusting Your Word implicitly. Help me to learn to cast all my cares upon You day by day and moment by moment. As each worry and concern forms in my mind, I pray that I would take that thought captive to Christ. I pray that with Your help, I will look to You and hand over my anxious thoughts to You, knowing that You have promised to carry me through all of life's difficulties and provide for the needs of me and my family. Thank You for Your goodness and grace and I pray this prayer in the name of Jesus, AMEN.
Father God I thank You for the timely reminders throughout Your word that I am to cast all my concerns on You – all my physical, emotional, financial, relational, daily worries and fears – knowing that all things are under Your sovereign control. Thank You for providing all I have needed, and may I develop right-thinking in the everyday needs and necessities of life, knowing that every worry starts with a simple doubt against Your goodness – but that doubt is displaced when we trust in the Lord with all our heart and don’t lean on our own understanding. Help me to trust you in all things – this I pray in Jesus name, AMEN.
Dear heavenly Father, You have shown me that every thought that comes into my mind can be turned to evil or good - worry and defeat OR faith and victory. Thank You that I have access to the very mind of Christ through the indwelling Holy Spirit. Help me to take every thought captive to Him, by turning the eyes of my heart to the lovely Lord Jesus, for in seeking My Saviour I will be seeking Your kingdom and Your righteousness, which is the bedrock of faith in God and rest in Christ - this I ask in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
Loving Father, thank You that Your grace has been extended to all who will believe in the Lord Jesus as the good and great shepherd of all the lost people of the world, including me. Thank You for saving me and drawing me into Your eternal sheep-fold, in Jesus name I pray. AMEN.
