Oh Lord, I pray that people will start to call upon Your Name. May they realize that You are there for us in the good times and bad. Therefore, when we feel like things are going well, this is when we need You, Lord, to make us stronger. Then, our lives are opened up to You fully, while allowing You to shine down Your light upon us. We can walk in Your light if we just let You in. I know that I am weak if I continue to do my own things, instead of seeking Your hand in my decisions. Therefore, I need Your guidance even when it appears that I have a handle on life. Really my own thoughts can deceive me into doing things I will then regret in the future. So, God, it is my prayer that You will build me up and lead me on the path of righteousness. I may not know what path to follow on my own strength, but am able to see clearly when You are leading me. So come and make Your place in my soul, that I will be ready to fight the enemy when he strikes. I may not have a way to escape His temptations on my own, but can easily fight and win the battle if You are with me. Surely, Satan has something coming, if He thinks that I am open to do anything he asks of me any longer. I have tried what he was wanted for me and all it did was lead to have more shame and guilt in the end. I was never fully happy and always needed more of the drug I was addicted to. Thank You, God, for rescuing me from a life of sin. You have cleansed me of all my sins through the blood that was shed on the cross. You found compassion for my soul. Surely, Your mercy endures forever. It is my prayer that You will build me up in Your strength and armor for the rest of my days. Preserve my life, that I may no longer fall by the hand of the enemy. I love You. Amen.
