Heavenly Father, it is my desire to do Your will in my life and I have been praying how I may find out how to know what Your will is, so that I can do Your will in my life. Thank You, Lord, for sending me to 1 Thessalonians chapter five, where I see that You have clearly laid out exactly what Your will for each one of us is.
Help me to walk in spirit and truth and encourage my brothers and sisters in the faith. Help me to esteem others as better than myself and support them in love.
Help me I pray, to encourage the fainthearted, help the weak, be patient with everyone, always return good for evil and seek after that which is good and lovely and pleasing in Your sight.
Most of all I pray that I develop a heart of ready rejoicing and an attitude of continuous prayer and praise. And give me the ability to be thankful in all things, even those times that prove to be the most difficult and frustrating. Help me to grow in grace and in a knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ and mature in the faith, knowing that this is Your will for my life. Praise Your holy name.
