I took you from the ends of the earth, from its farthest corners I called you. I said, "You are my servant," I have chosen you not rejected you. so, do not fear, for I am with you; for I am your God. I will strengthen and help you: I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
Isaiah 41: 9-10
Dear Ruler of the World,
Help my children recognize their VALUE in Christ - that You have CHOSEN them, and have an ASSIGNMENT for them while on this earth. Bind fear from their hearts, make them strong in YOU. Cause them to press forward, knowing that You are holding their hand.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:13
Help us to not view praying as a waste of our precious time. On the contrary, may we humbly realize that prayer multiplies our time because when we lift our requests to you, you do things more powerfully and efficiently than we could ever do on our own. The extra blessing is that we gain peace in our hearts and minds. So today Lord, with thanksgiving, we will take time to pray...Amen.
