Though we may not always act out in perfect righteousness, but there is something called ‘upright in heart’. And God, my heart is not always upright. Help me to be so, so that the way to heaven is not steep and rough.
Indeed, with regards to my sins, with regards to uncertain future and a whole load of my concerns, grant me peace. All that I accomplished is really from you. All that I do not accomplish is Your will.
Your discipline in this season has been gentle for me. As I slowly move along with You, I seem to be more and more free. But, please have mercy on those whom Your hand is heavy. Aid them to repentance that they may receive life. Life on earth and life to come.
In Jesus’ name, I pray, amen.

May you have a beautiful time =)
Help me not to be overly concerned with time. It is limited to me but it is arbitrary to You. There is always a time for everything. And while I may think that I am waiting for Your time, You are probably waiting for mine. For me to be ready, for things to be appropriate, for things to be in the right place, right time, right everything… So help me Lord to be patient in all things, with myself, with others, with all things. In that patience, help me to wait joyfully and excitedly await what You are unfolding and doing. In Jesus’ name, I pray, amen.
Help us not to be lost in our comforts and luxuries. Grant us a keen awareness of the fragility of life, Your will and Your power. Move our hearts towards how You want us to live. That in the final days, we will not be found wanting but enter rest into Your presence. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
