Oh Lord, thank You for this blessed day. Thank You for preparing our paths ahead of us. It is better when You are giving us the help we need and not the world. Your ways are higher! I know that people will fail us over time, where only Your desires for us will continue for all time. There is no end to Your mercy and grace. People can say terrible things about us, but we know that we are blessed even more when we are reviled and persecuted for Your sake. All I know is that this life is short and people around us need our help. They need Your love to enter their lives, that they may also be born again and be saved. We don’t come at them with accusations about sin but lead them by the hand to Your heavenly home. Then, can You convict them of anything that is wrong in their lives. Only You know the inner parts of our heart, where we should not be judging anyone wrongfully. Accusations are felt as mocking to the innocent, and as Christians, I pray that we will not give in to such things. Lord, keep us on Your holy and righteous path. Keep us conformed to Your ways and not the world. I wish to be with You forever in heaven one day. May You accept me in Your presence now and for all eternity. I love You, Jesus! You are my Lord, God, and Savior. I give You this life to serve You. I give You glory and praise. Amen.
