Prayer to Trust God

Lord, help us to confidently expect good things from You today! Please, eliminate the legalistic thinking that You will give us only what we deserve. No way! Your word says,

"I know what I’m doing. I have it all planned out—plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for." - Jeremiah 29:11 (MSG)

Father, please remind us that Your love is unconditional for us, and so are Your plans. You haven't erased good plans for us because we've messed up! They are still there waiting for us. God, give us patience, and teach us to trust You completely while we wait. -In Jesus' name, Amen.

Prayer to Not be Fooled

Oh Lord, let me see You at work in our lives, not us.  Let us not be FOOLED into thinking that "how good we have it" has anything to do with our own skill. 

My skills seem to only get me in messes, and You get me out! You have rescued me, You have healed me, You have restored my life, You have blessed me with a beautiful family, I will NOT be FOOLED to think that any of this is of my own good works.  

I sit here in tears thinking of how to say thank You.  I don't know if I should dance around the room or fall down to the floor sob...I'm so full of gratitude.  

"The humble will see their God at work and be glad. Let all who seek God's help be encouraged." -Psalm 69:32

-In Jesus' name, Amen
