Dear Lord, please give me the strength to face the day ahead. Give me wisdom with every step I take and every word I speak. And as the day slips into night, let me retire with unwavering confidence that I have done the best I could, and I have done what is right. Amen.
Matthew 11:28-30 New King James Version (NKJV)Bible Gateway
28 Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”
God’s love is authentic and unfailing
John 15:13 New King James Version (NKJV)
13 Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends.
Lord your love is authentic and unfailing. You sent your Son, a man without sin to die as a ransom for the sins of others. You have been patient with us through the ages. Still, yet we often take you for granted. But the time will come when you say enough is enough.
Help us to realize that we are on a collision course. And, unless we make an about turn, we are on track to make the same mistake the people made during Noah’s time.
Open our eyes that we may see the danger that lies ahead. And remove the spirit of complacency from within us.
Increase our knowledge and understanding. And guide our footsteps toward the path Jesus walked when He was on earth.
Give us the spirit of boldness and help us to be steadfast in our commitment to serve you. Steer us from distractions and anything that will beset us. Amen
The acronym, WWJD, short for “What Would Jesus Do?” was on the tongue of every Christian on earth in the nineties. Today, WWJD is almost forgotten. And rightly so.
Every Christian knows Jesus always do the right thing, regardless of the situation and we can as well.
With that settled, it seems the central question Christians everywhere should be asking themselves daily, or as they reflect on their Christian journey is this: “Is it well with my soul?” At the end that’s the only thing that matters.
Praise You in this storm–Casting crowns
1Fear not, for I am with you;
Be not dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you,
Yes, I will help you,
I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’

Let us pray
Heavenly Father, faith in your holy Word is not only the way to wisdom but also the way to salvation. Help me to comprehend your divine plan for me so that I will seek to grow in your ways.
Let me not be vain or self-righteous. Remove the darkness from my path and the scales from my eyes that I may see your deeds clearly and strive to replicate them. Help me to train my ears to the sound of your Clarion; so that my every action will be according to your direction.
Let there be a yearning in me to live an exemplary life; so that the world will see and recognize the love of your Son Jesus, as it shines through me. Amen.
When life gets messy, and you do not know what to do or where to turn, do not panic Look to Jesus instead. He is bigger than the mess. In John 14:6 He said:
“I am the way the truth and the life…”
