Lord, teach us to live in tranquility. There is no greater feeling. Even in the midst of persecution, suffering, turmoil, God is the answer to seeking peace through it all.
We thank You for who You are and for seeing fit to use us to do your work. Like Nehemiah, we are assigned to rebuild the walls. Regardless of the opposition or whomever may not be on our team, we will rely and trust that you will build our team with those who are willing to help construct something bigger and better than what was there originally. Actually, there are dreams and visions that may not have been realized by anyone previous, but you have bestowed that responsibility unto us and we will take it and run with it. Thank you in advance for the strength we need to accomplish the task.
Whatever that is in us that is not of You, we cast it out now, in Jesus' Name. We all fall short and where we do, we look to you to help teach and correct us to do it the right way. If we lack wisdom, we ask you right now for it. The wisdom to do what it is that You want us to do. You know what we need before we even ask us. So, we ask you to search our needs, desires, wants, and grant them as you see fit. We come before you humbly, knowing that we are simply Your servants and we are here to do the Will of the Father who sent us.
Lord we love You and love Your people. May we find peace in knowing that You are the captain of our ship and we will ride along the tides with You as you protect us from harm. As You guide us towards truth, let us be witnesses to the World that You live in us and that frees us from any bondage that could ever be sent to hinder Your will. As we go about our daily journey, we accept the task before us and will rely on your strength to carry us through.
In Jesus' Name,
