Help me to be everything you want me to be God, help me to be an example of Your love, hope, and dedication. Lord change me, break me, and mold me into something that I can be proud of that represents Christ every minute of the day. Hold me close and never let me go Lord, when life gets me down pick me back up and brush me off; when I have nothing left, let me glorify you to the end when there is no reason I should even be alive. Teach me, change me, and humble me the way you taught your disciples- teach me to follow you in all that I do, change me into a man after your own heart, and humble me so that nothing could ever keep me from your plan for my life.
Thank you for all that you’ve shown me in my life God; I know I am not worthy, but let me try to give back part of what you have given to me. Strengthen my mind to only focus on whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable.
Lord help me, this life isn’t easy and we’re all only human, but help me to stand above the rest and when I’m weary remind me of the eternal glory that awaits me. Help me to understand that the truth that sets me free was paid in full by death and you have saved me from eternal hell. You are my hope and my defense, you came with a purpose and kept your word so that we all might reign next to You one day.
Lord help me to praise you in all that I do, not just in the small things, but in everything let my life be a reflection on you. Sin is broken through your blood Lord and I know I am free and forgiven under the name of Jesus Christ the risen Savior. The same power that conquered the grave Lord lives in me, help me to never forget, to never doubt, and never question the presence and power of your righteousness for all of my days.
Refine my life and remind me that if You are for us, nobody can be against us and never defeat me. My confidence lies in You and not my own accomplishments and bodily feats. Change me and build me spiritually, physically, mentally, socially, and morally so that I may change the world for you and not my own personal gain. Let me not seek my own desires and pleasures, but only seek in things that can further your kingdom and the lives of others.
Above all, let me live in fear of You Lord- let me never think that I am better than anyone or that I can accomplish my life without you. Humble me in a way that allows me to only focus on you Lord, bring me to my knees and discipline me when I go astray- remind me that you are Lord and I am not. Keep me on the right path and shine a light in the darkness, make your plans clear for my life.
Never let me grow weary or feel defeated because of things of this world, but instead renew my strength. I acknowledge that a life of Christ is harder than a life of this world, but I accept it with an open-mind and know that you will provide a way in all circumstances to live for you; neither height nor depth, nor anything else in creation will be able to separate us from the love of God that is Christ Jesus our Lord.
