We don’t have the script for our lives, only our Father does, and that’s a good thing, isn’t it? God is in control of everything we are going through and knows what is best for us. This is wonderful, but sometimes we find it difficult to just trust, we want to be in control and know what is going to happen in the future, which is impossible.
But do you know what? When our Lord is in control there is no need to know what is going to happen in the future and, furthermore, when we prepare ourselves and give our best today we will certainly be prepared for whatever comes, be it blessings or trials.
This is why I want to pray with you today, that we hand over our future to the Father and prepare ourselves daily for whatever comes. I leave here a passage especially for you today:
Seek ye therefore first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.Matthew 6:33
Remember that you don’t have to repeat the prayer exactly as I am going to leave it here, because each one of us has a specific way of communicating with the Lord. But if you want to follow me, it will be a pleasure, feel free to speak it in your own way.
Beloved God, I thank you for this day and for your care. For the opportunity I have today to be a better person, to trust your promises more and make wiser decisions than I did yesterday. I know that I fail and need to improve in many things, but I don’t want to make bad decisions anymore.
Today I commit myself to improve my attitude towards life, not being a victim of the future anymore, but a person of faith and action in the present.
Father, I have plans, but I know that the final answer will come from You. I also humbly ask for your help to give me encouragement and courage today so that I can get those dreams and plans put in me by You off the paper. Sometimes for fear of failure I don’t start, but I don’t want to be like that, that my posture is that of a victorious and determined person.
May I grow in His grace every day, I know that by doing what I need to do today, the Lord is already taking care of my future and in this I rejoice. God, the control of my life is all yours, fulfill your will. My God, Yours is the power, the glory and the honor forever. It is in the name of Jesus that I pray, give thanks and ask that my words may reach the Lord like a sweet perfume!
Prayer of a mere servant of God
God bless you!
