Help me Lord Jesus, to keep my whole focus on You. Life is becoming so hard and difficult that at times it is not easy to keep the eyes of my heart looking to Jesus as I know I should, for without Him, I can do nothing. At times Lord, I feel that I am losing my way in life, but I know that as I rest in You, I will hear the gentle promptings from Your Spirit saying, “this is the way – walk in it…”
Sometimes Lord, I confess that when things get tough, I try in my own strength to sort out my own problems, and work out what I ought to do myself, without turning to You first, and inevitably I seem to make the wrong choice. I know that You have a plan for my life, and I also know that living in this world is not easy, but I know that my sufficiency is in You and that Your strength is made perfect as I rest in You. Help me to apply this truth in my life.
Guide me, Lord, through all the obstacles of life, and help me with the many choices I have to make on a daily basis. May I truly learn to look to You as my Guide and Strength. In Jesus' name I pray,
