Prayer for Today

March 22, 2021

Lord God, the more I purpose to walk in Your light, the more difficult things become. The more I try to be upright, the more other people try to pull me down to their level. The more I try to show love- and live in peace, the more I see hurt pain, and unrighteous living. I know in the end, I win but, the struggle is real!

Lord, as I face another day, my hope is in Your integrity and Your uprightness. No matter what may come my way or what I may face, today, my hope is in You.

The plans and the schedule I have set for myself are only a suggestion. Help me to recognize the way You have laid out for me today.

As I fulfill Your plans for me today, my knees may grow weak from standing on Your word and Your promises; strengthen me. My way may grow dim; guide me. In my eyes, my path may look like it’s falling away; affirm my steps. My hope is in You all day long! In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
