Lord God Please help me…

to find the strength to get up when I just want to give up.

to hold on even though I have fears about my (e. g. home, job, family, health, car)

to trust You Lord even though my stress, drama and fears are so overwhelming

to not give up even though life seems so shaky and uncertain

to speak up the next time he/she disrespects or abuses me.

to guard my heart from depression, shame, guilt and toxic people

to guard myself from family/friends who challenge my trust, faith, time and money.

to be grateful and show up for my job even though I may not enjoy it.

to be a good provider for myself and my family with less stress and struggle.

to resist my addictions (e.g.. shoes, food, alcohol, drugs, shopping,

gambling, bad relationships, porn, etc.)

to say “no” to things that can destroy my life, health and relationships

to discover and develop my special anointed gifts, talents and purpose.

to be successful in my business and leadership roles.

to meet the right people who can enrich and better my life.

to fill my lonely hours with productivity, peace and wholeness.

to forgive and let go of my pain, bitterness and anger.

to heal my grieving heart for the ones I have lost and miss so much.

to stop worrying about my loved ones in trouble, the war, hospital or prison.

to endure and keep my faith as I wait for my miracle.

to remember, that spite of it all, I am, too blessed to be stressed.

to remember that You are the source of supply.

to be blessed and to be a blessing to others.

to keep pressing toward my mark of a higher calling.

to stay in the light to see You more clearly, follow You nearly and love You more dearly.
