In Your Son’s Precious Name,
- Everlasting King,
It is the beginning of a new week,
And there is so much to be thankful for.
Because of who You are and what You have done,

Please help me to constantly keep my eyes on You
And not get distracted by this world.

“Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow;
though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.”

Your overwhelming love is such an amazing blessing.

There are no words to express the magnitude of my gratefulness.
You have removed my sins as far as the east is from the west!
Thank You for Your continual presence every step of the way.
Please help me remember that whatever I do,
I’m ultimately working for You, not for man.
Please help me perform to the best of my ability.
In Jesus’ Holy Name,
For as high as the heavens are above the earth,
so great is His love for those who fear Him;
as far as the east is from the west,
so far has He removed our transgressions from us.

I pray this trusting and believing in You,
For it is written:
He will command His angels concerning you to guard you carefully.

Of whom shall I be afraid?
With all that is in me, bless Your holy name!

In their hearts humans plan their course, but the Lord establishes their steps.

You are so generous and compassionate!
Please help me to be content with all You’ve given me.
Search my heart, Lord.
Show me the things that need to change.
I don’t know what the future will bring.
It comforts me to know that You are in control.
I pray for Your guidance.
Search me, God, and know my heart;
test me and know my anxious thoughts.
See if there is any offensive way in me,
and lead me in the way everlasting.
- Maker of Heaven and Earth,
You know what each day holds.
You even take care of the sparrows,
And You say in Your word that I am more precious
To You than many sparrows.
I am Your handiwork,
Created in Christ Jesus to do good works
Which You prepared in advance for me to do.
Please fill my heart and mind with Your peace.
Remind me to cast all of my anxiety on You
Because You care for me.
So don’t be afraid;
you are worth more than many sparrows.
