Today’s Prayer (08/04/2021)

Oh Lord, I pray that You will help each one of us to work righteousness and to not sin. Help us live a life pleasing in Your sight. I know that I cannot do this on my own, but only if I can abide in You. Lord, I love You and it is a blessing to do as You say. As my love for You grows, I take sinning even more seriously than ever before. I would never want to hurt You by doing or saying things that are sinful in nature. However, I know that I cannot do Your will on my own strength. Therefore, I need Your help, God. Give me the strength to endure life’s trials and temptations. As I abide in You each day, pour into me wisdom from above. As Solomon learned early on through You, I wish to learn in the same manner. But as for me, keep my eyes fixed on You, that I may not be turned over to my lusts as Solomon did later on in life. This has happened to me before, but I know that Your willpower in my life is much stronger than my own. It is my true desire, God, to be conformed in Your likeness on earth. Not just in Your creation, which everyone is, but to be moved and shaped by Your characteristics in me. I want to be like You, God. Then, can people see You in me and also give You glory. I give You praise and honor. I love You. Amen.
