Please, Lord, Answer My Prayer
I love You, Lord. Please, Lord, answer my prayer. I know You love us, Lord.
I know You care about us, and when we give our lives to You, we belong to You, and You take care of us.
You are our Shepherd. You are our guide. You will lead us to whatever You know is best for us. You will use us to serve Your great purposes in whatever way You know is best.
Lord, I know that sometimes we want things that are not in our own best interests. You know what’s best for us, and Lord, I ask that my desires become aligned with what You want for my life.
If there’s something I can do for You, please help me to do it. You go before me and behind me. You strengthen me, and guide me. Let me serve You as your hands and feet in this world, animated by the Holy Spirit in my heart.
Lord, when I gave my life to You, I did it as a last act of desperation. I didn’t know what would come next – I just knew I needed You. You lifted me up out of my emptiness, despair and great need. You comforted me and gave me new life, rebirth, and a new heart filled with Your Holy Spirit. You filled me with love, and peace. A great, beautiful, amazing peace.
Now Lord, I want to give back to You. Still, sometimes I want things that are simply worldly, and I ask for them too. But You know whether those things would be good for me, or bad for some reason I can’t foresee or understand. You know my past, my future, my motivations and my heart.
Lord, guide me toward those things that are best for my life. Save me from my own confused desires, and give me a heart full of love for You, for this life You’ve blessed us with, and for the opportunities You set before me. Let me always remember, You are providing everything I need, because You love Your people, and take care of us.
I’m truly walking a new path now, Lord. The path You guide me on. Please Lord, answer my prayer. Let me be the person you want me to be.
This I pray in Jesus’ Name – Amen!
