Prayer to Convince You of God's Goodness

Father, remind us this today that no matter what has gone down in our lives, it will be okay because You are good.  

We may start our day talking to you about our list of worries and regrets; begging for Your help and forgiveness. But, by the end of the day help us to turn the page and see how You worked all of it out for our good!  

For Your word says, "God causes everything to work together  for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them." -Romans 8:28

Convince our hearts that this is true!  The people that hurt us did not ruin Your plan for our lives. The sin and temptation that has entangled us at times did not ruin your plans for our lives.  

You have offered forgiveness.  Help us to accept it and today be assured that every detail in our lives of loving You God, You will turn into something good.  -In Jesus' name, Amen

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
