Show me how I can reach out and be an example of family in someone else’s life. Lord, today I choose to rise out of mediocrity. I choose to give my very best to everything I do. Teach me to live skillfully so that my life is a continual praise to You.
Abba Father, help me love you today with my whole heart, soul and mind. Take my life, I give you complete control. I want to spend time with you, share my thoughts with you and hear from you today.

Be the Lord of my life and help me build my life on a solid foundation of Your word. Thank You for all You have done for me. Forgive me for my lack of gratefulness. I praise You for Your grace and mercy in my life. Lord Jesus, thank you for the freedom I have to tell you everything that’s on my mind and in my heart, even the things that don’t look very good at all. All praise be to you, Lord Jesus, for the freedom you have given me to speak so honestly with you.
Lord, thank you for my adoption into your family, and for the brothers and sisters you have given me. Thank you for all the ways I benefit from being part of your family. Help me, dear Lord, to learn to see my life, my family, even my stuff in the light of your kingdom. May I learn to share what is “mine,” knowing that truly it is “yours” and therefore “ours.” Help me to open my heart, my arms, and in home to others. Help your church to be the community you have called us to be, sharing all that we are and all that we have with each other. May our genuine fellowship be a sign to the world that the Gospel is true. Thank You for being my anchor throughout this day and it is my prayer that You will hold me close to You and lead and guide me and keep me on a steady course through my voyage in life. Jesus, I present my prayer in Your precious name before my God, Father in heaven. Amen
