Dear Lord, you have been so faithful and gracious for putting me here for such a time as this. I am here to serve you, and you are here to lead me. May I follow you as you lead. Help me to be sensitive to your subtle nudges.
Dear child, I am always willing to lead my people, but my people have to want to follow me. What I seek are those who want my will above all else.
Lord, I do want your will. And I want to desire your will above all else. Please lead today, and may I be hypersensitive to your leadership.
Child, follow me, and I will lead you.
Lord, help me to be an ardent Christ-follower. May I passionately follow you in every aspect of my life, personal and professional.
Child, reflect on my Word: "Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path." – Psalm 119:105
Dear Lord, when I am lost, your Word illuminates my way. When I am in darkness, it shines light upon my path.
Child, embrace my teachings and hold them close to your heart: "Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight." – Proverbs 3:5-6
Lord, when doubts arise, and when the world seems overwhelming, let me put my trust in you. Help me to remember that you are in control and that your plans for me are always for my good.
Child, always remember to seek me: "But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well." – Matthew 6:33
Dear Father, I desire to prioritize your kingdom in my life. Help me to pursue your righteousness and remind me that when I put you first, everything else will fall into place.
Child, as you continue your journey, keep this scripture close: "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." – Philippians 4:13
Lord, no matter what challenges I face, may I always remember that with you, I can overcome anything. Strengthen my faith, Lord, for I choose to follow you for such a time as this.
In Jesus' name, Amen.
Your aspiring servant, Daniel M.
