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.

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.
