"Dear God, sometimes I just want to give up, or at least take a break from the pressures I face. These circumstances gang up against my faith and hope for a future. Yet, I know the secret, You are my secret for facing our future together. All things are possible in Your strength. I believe it. Amen.

"Dear God, I am so blessed to be able to stand on your promises and declare that my life is yours. I pray that You will continue to watch over me as I continue my walk with you."
"Dear God, teach me about the healing nature of sacrifice. So often I try to soothe my hurts with indulgence. Reverse that, Lord. Help me to find healing through the discipline of sacrifice. amen."
"Dear God, may the words I speak and the attitude I show lift those around me who are sinking. I am a beacon, help me to shine brightly for You. In Jesus' name, amen."
"Dear God, temper my spending with the assurance that as I seek Your righteousness, my needs will be met with abundance. Add to my life where I need more, and subtract from my life where I need less. Help me to know that oftentimes, 'less is more'. In Jesus' name, amen."
"Dear God, Thank you so much for all of my brothers and sisters in Christ. Lord your word says "For where two or three gathered in my name, you are there with us". Lord help us to be there in fellowship with each other and most important to always be in fellowship with you."
"Dear God, My soul is thirsty and I know that only you can quench that thirst. Please pour your living water into me so that I may never be thirsty again."

"Dear God, I would confess to You that I am self-seeking and self-serving and too wrapped up in my own business to notice the hurts and injustice outside of me. Show me today someone or some situation that I can stand with You to proclaim freedom and justice. Help me to be a good student of 'doing good.' Amen."
"Dear God, so many choices and pathways lie ahead. I desperately need You to show me the way, the truth, and the life. I am a willing follower, so guide me. In Jesus' name, amen."
"Dear God, I've heard it said that 'timing is everything.' Lord, I know YOU are everything, including my Guide through the seasons and times of life. Help me to make today count. And tomorrow, and the day after that, as I submit to Your guidance and care. amen."
"Dear God, Please give us a heart of forgiveness. Help us to forgive others and help us to forgive ourselves. Help us to remember what you did for us on the cross. Let us love one another and show kindness and compassion just as you did for us then and as you do for us now."
"Dear God, we know not what's around the next corner or bend of our lives ... except to know that You will be there to give us courage. Replace my timidity with Your strength, let's face tomorrow together. In Jesus' name, amen."
