Heavenly Father, Your wisdom is endless and You know of the challenges and the hardship before they arise and offer their struggles. Nothing, O Heavenly Father, sneaks up on You, nothing great or small escape Your sight as You let Your eyes fall upon my life, looking upon my days with Your mercy and judgment. You know even when I cannot see, or when all things still remain a mystery to me, and I know not what comes next.
Keep me and preserve me therefore in Your grace, love and hope O Heavenly Father. Keep my eyes open to the challenges that may arise and make clear the temptations that may arise in front of me so that I may vigilantly keep guard against them. Strengthen me and give me the courage to make my stand against all that might stand against Your righteousness in my life, that no darkness may enter my life, and that, if hurt and pain seeks to take hold of me, Your boundless mercy shall chase those dark clouds of despair from me. By the power of Your spirit, renew my heart daily O Lord, my blessed Father, that I may stand with a right spirit before Your throne, guided forever to the pastures of Your peace.
In the name of Your Son, my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, Amen.
