A Stich in Thyme had this posted and I decided to post it as well.
Humbly I ask for you to watch over the infirm, guide the confused and give peace to those in turmoil. I thank you Father for my sobriety for without you, it would not have been possible. I ask for your will to be the guiding beacon of all men. Please watch over the believers and non believers for we are at your mercy. I pray for the safe keeping of our creatures who come to mean so much to many of us. If my burdens will spare my children, friends, strangers or enemies, please use me as a vessel. I lay my confusion, my troubles & my fears at your feet. If I stumble Lord, please show me how to rise again for there are days when it seems impossible. If I fail, show me courage to try again. If I cry, remind me it too shall pass in it’s due time with the gentle whispers of promise. And when I hurt Father, I will not ask why me but thank you for sparing those I love. If I anger Lord, temper me with your patience and quiet me so I may listen to the spirit. When I loose sight, remind me Lord ~I know the way back to you and though the road is hard and long, it’s well mapped & brightly lit. I am troubled by so many who suffer with illness, both physical & mental. I ask a special prayer of comfort & peace for them. I ask for strength Lord so I may walk in light that you choose to shine on me. Let me bear up the weight of burdens that may fall upon me. Today is especially difficult for me Lord as I am struggling with so much pain & finding it hard to find my strength. I ask for your will to watch over & guide me through this difficult time.
In Jesus name,
