A Simple Prayer

Dear Lord, I thank You for this day. I thank You for
my being able to see and to hear this morning. I'm
blessed because You are a forgiving God and an
understanding God. You have done so much for me and
You keep on blessing me. Forgive me this day for
everything I have done, said or thought that was not
pleasing to you. I ask now for Your forgiveness.

Please keep me safe from all danger and harm. Help me
to start this day with a new attitude and plenty of
gratitude. Let me make the best of each and every day
to clear my mind so that I can hear from You. Please
broaden my mind that I can accept all things. Let me
not whine and whimper over things I have no control
over. Let me continue to see sin through God's eyes
and acknowledge it as evil. And when I sin, let me
repent, and confess with my mouth my wrongdoing, and
receive the forgiveness of God. And when this world
closes in on me, let me remember Jesus' example -to
slip away and find a quiet place to pray. It's the
best response when I'm pushed beyond my limits. I know
that when I can't pray, You listen to my heart.

Continue to use me to do Your will. Continue to bless
me that I may be a blessing to others. Keep me strong
that I may help the weak... Keep me uplifted that I
may have words of encouragement for others. I pray for
those that are lost and can't find their way. I pray
for those that are misjudged and misunderstood. I pray
for those who don't know You intimately. I pray for
those that will delete this without sharing it with
others. I pray for those that don't believe. But I
thank you that I believe. I believe that God changes
people and God changes things. I pray for all my
sisters and brothers. For each and every family member
in their households. I pray for peace, love and joy in
their homes that they are out of debt and all their
needs are met. I pray that every eye that reads this
knows there is no problem, circumstance, or situation
greater than God. Every battle is in Your hands for
You to fight. I pray that these words be received into
the hearts of every eye that sees them and every mouth
that confesses them willingly.

This is my prayer. In Jesus' Name, Amen.

Note: I just got it from my emails or while browsing the Internet. I liked the message of the prayer and I thought this might also inspire other people.
