Prayer for Contentment

Lord, we want to be happy.  Show us how to be content whatever the circumstances may be. 

For Your word says, "For I can do everything through Christ who gives me strength." (Philippians 4:13)

Father, give us strength when we are tired, give us strength when we feel abandoned, give us strength when we are broken. Remind us, nothing else can compare to the joy of knowing that You accept us just the way we are, love us unconditionaly, and have armies of angels fighting for us. 

Lord, bring us contentment, a state of peaceful happiness no matter what is going on around us. -In Jesus' name, Amen

Prayer to be Transformed

Father, please change the way we think!  Take the ticker tape thought process that constantly reminds of our past mistakes, and change it with a constant reminder of the amazing life that is possible when we are dedicated to You. 

For Your word says: "Don't copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think." -Romans 12:2

I'm so thankful that you don't treat us like banks do!  We are not judged by a score that represents the amount of financial mistakes or successes we've had. Through the gift of Your son, we have a perfect score!  Help us to see ourselves that way!  

Father, transform us into people that are not stuck on our past, but free to pursue our full potential with you. -In Jesus' name, Amen.
