Regardless of how this day unfolds, Dear LORD, help me remember that I belong to you, and my best desire is to act accordingly.

Keep my feet from stumbling and my mind from wandering into distractions that would steal precious time and energy from the most important things you have designed for me. I struggle with thoughts of old and long forgiven sins when I pray. Please give me the courage and the strength to cast aside all You have already forgiven.

I’m so honored to be Your child, LORD. And I’m so grateful that you died for me—rising again on Your own new and special morning—so that every day I can be filled with the wonder of Your love, the freedom of Your Spirit, and the joy of knowing You. There is nothing I desire more than You and I lift Your strong and eternal name as I pray today. Amen
