Prayer for Confidence

Father, remind us today the way we react to the unexpected circumstances in our lives, affects the way others see You. When we face failure, health challenges, or an end to a relationship remind us that we don't have to freak out. We have You! 

You are the one that hung the moon, the one that provides peace that surpasses all understanding, and healer to the broken. You are on our side! You have armies of angels fighting on our behalf. Why are we afraid? 

For Your message to the oppressed says, "Instead of shame and dishonor, you will enjoy a double share of honor. You will possess a double portion of prosperity in your land, and everlasting joy will be yours." -Isaiah 6:6-7

Let us walk confidently through these challenges so we can show the lost and broken that there is hope for them too! Oh Father, help me to show my unsaved friends the secret to having confidence during calamity, YOU!

-In Jesus' name, Amen

Prayer to Love Deeper

Father, open our lives to love deeper, love more, and love without expecting anything in return.  

For Your word says, "Dear friends, let us continue to love one another, for love comes from God....This is real love—not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins." 1 John 4:7, 10.

Break away any walls we have put up around our hearts and teach us to fall in love with You, and Your children.  Help us to see everyone we come in contact with you as one of Your children that You love, even the difficult ones Lord! 

God, restore Jesus as our first love, and enable us to got out to share His never-ending, unstoppable, always and forever love with others.

-In Jesus' name, Amen
