Father, in the name of Jesus,
Look upon us kindly, correcting us, guiding us and loving us.
Have mercy upon all who have yet to acknowledge You.
Don’t remove from Your Spirit from this place, but keep us mindful of Your presence.
Create in us a desire to please You and to be a model to others in doing so.
Help us to understand Your plans–plans to prosper us and not to harm any–and to live according to Your Word.
Keep us prayerful–always looking to You for answers and solutions–always considerate of others.
As our number in age increases–grant us increased wisdom and knowledge in abundance.
Help us O God to not judge matters that only You can judge since we have neither heaven or hell for anyone.
Help us to keep our minds stayed on You, no matter what our circumstances may be.
Speak to our hearts, Lord and help us to understand that loving You and loving others is the only way we can affect change in our lives.
We look to You, the only Wise God of all creation, for everything we need and desire and we thank You for keeping us in position to receive every blessing our eyes have not seen because of our obedience to You and Your love towards us.
Never let us forget to proclaim just how awesome You are!
