A Prayer for Your Relationship with God
Lord, I want to see myself as You see me. I want to agree with Your thoughts about me so that I become the woman and wife You designed me to be. Break down the walls of fear and pride that keep me from knowing who I became when I embraced Jesus’ sacrificial love on the Cross.
I invite Your Holy Spirit to convict me of any sin that I have committed that separates me from the full knowledge of You and my place in Your family.
“I have called upon Thee,
For Thou wilt hear me, o Lord, and hear my speech.
Show Thy marvelous loving kindness, O Thou that savest by
Thy right hand those who put their trust in Thee from those
That rise up against them.
Keep me as the apple of thine eye;
Hide me under the shadow of Thy wings.”[Psalm 7: 6,7,8]

An Inspirational Prayer
Do not look forward to what may happen
tomorrow; the same everlasting Father who cares
for you today will take care of you tomorrow and
every day. Either He will shield you from suffering,
or He will give you unfailing strength to bear it.
Be at peace, then. Put aside all anxious thoughts and
imaginations, and say continually: “The Lord is my
strength and my shield. My heart has trusted in Him
and I am helped. He is not only with me but in me,
and I in Him.”
— St. Francis de Sales
