Reading: Psalm 71:5-8 (NLT)

O Lord, you alone are my hope. I’ve trusted you, O Lord, from childhood. Yes, you have been with me from birth; from my mother’s womb you have cared for me. No wonder I am always praising you!

My life is an example to many, because you have been my strength and protection. That is why I can never stop praising you; I declare your glory all day long.

Reading: Proverbs 3:5-7 (NLT)

Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.

Don’t be impressed with your own wisdom. Instead, fear the Lord and turn away from evil.

My Prayer:

Heavenly Father: You have been my strength and my protection, even before I was born.

+ You alone have been, and still are, my only hope.

Lord Jesus: You are the embodiment of right living – the Way, the Truth, and the Life.

+ I pray for a willingness to seek Your will, and to follow You as You lead.
+ I pray for genuine humility before You, no matter how much I think I know.

Holy Spirit: Live in and through me, that I may put on Christ and walk with Him today.

+ Christ in me, Christ under me, Christ above me.
+ Christ beside me – on my left and my right.
+ Christ before me, Christ behind me.
+ Christ in the heart of everyone to whom I speak.
+ Christ on the lips of everyone who speaks to me.

This day, be within and without me, lowly and meek, yet all powerful. Amen.
