May 4 Prayer 1
Dear Father in heaven,
We thank you for guiding us on all our ways with power from on high. We thank you that again and again you have led us through the darkness on a path of light. Looking back, we cannot be thankful enough. May our hearts turn to you and be filled with quiet certainty in all we are still awaiting. Remember us and remember the many who lie under heavy bondage. Let the time come when you will bring a great deliverance to those who are in darkness. Then we can find meaning for our lives in all that happens, knowing that you have been faithful in everything. You have done more than we asked, more than we can understand.
May 4 Prayer 2
let our hearts be like the roots of a tulip, a bulb full of truth that is strong through all seasons and blooms beautifully in Your time. Let our lives be evidence of the truth Isaiah proclaimed: “The grass withers and the flowers fade, but the word of our God stands forever.” (Isaiah 40:8 NLT) When it becomes difficult for us to see You in our circumstances, Lord, remind us through Your Holy Spirit -living in us through Christ Jesus- of Your faithfulness.
May 4 Prayer 3
I believe in you: increase my faith. I trust in you: strengthen my trust. I love you: let me love you more and more. I am sorry for my sins: deepen my sorrow. I worship you as my first beginning, I long for you as my last end, I praise you as my constant helper, And call on you as my loving protector. Guide me by your wisdom, Correct me with your justice, Comfort me with your mercy, Protect me with your power. I offer you, Lord, my thoughts: to be fixed on you; My words: to have you for their theme; My actions: to reflect my love for you; My sufferings: to be endured for your greater glory. I want to do what you ask of me: In the way you ask, For as long as you ask, Because you ask it.
