Prayer of Focus {#Write31Days}

Lord, Its me again.  Thank you for always being there for me when I come to you.  I know you want me to come more often.  Thank you for the grace that covers me even as I try to do things my own way.  I want to come to you first, but I usually get in the way.  Thank you for understanding and being more faithful than I could ever imagine.

You said I could come to you with my needs.  Me, I need focus.  I need to know what you Praywant me to do.  I have been trying far to long to do things my own way, and I just spin my wheels.  So give me eyes to see how You see this mountain in front of me.  Show me what steps I need to take.

You said to lean not on my own understanding, well I don’t understand at all.  I put my trust in You because You understand everything.  I acknowledge that Your way is the only way and ask You Lord to direct my path.

You said I could ask and You would give me wisdom.  Lord, Give me wisdom.

Lord help me to love others like You love them.  Give me Your eyes for the people and circumstances that are around me, so that I can be Your hands and feet to those You have entrusted to my influence.

About Jackie S

I have been through a lot in life, but through Christ I am more than an overcomer. I am not perfect, I will never claim to be. Praise God I am forgiven though. I am rather opinionated. I see most things in black and white and believe honesty is always the best policy. This combination sometimes comes off harsh. The truth is I love people. I truly love helping others and try to believe the best about others. It is easy to find faults, but focusing on strengths is more my style, but I also shoot it straight. If it sounds harsh, know my heart is for something better for you.

    This is a lovely prayer, thank you for sharing it. I find it difficult to not lean on my own understanding in so many ways. I think I’ll print this out as a reminder.
