Lord, as I awake this morning, I rejoice that you greet me with your mercies – thank you for your mercy Lord that does not give me what I deserve but instead your gracious response gives me what I do not deserve – your presence, your provision, your peace, and your purpose. Help me Lord to go forward today with confidence in your presence and how you will provide for me what is needed at each step of the way; how I can reject anxiety because you are my ever-present help in times of trouble and my joy in the midst of life’s challenging moments. Help me Lord to go through this day as an instrument of your peace – as a herald of your Word – as a conduit of your provision – as a servant of my Savior Jesus Christ. I love you Lord and I want to serve you more and better every day. Help me Lord. I thank you and I bless you and I honor you with all that I am and all that I have – may the name of the Lord be lifted high and be greatly honored in my life and in this world. Praying in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
