“Let my cry come before You, O Lord; give me understanding according to
Your word.  Let my supplication come
before You; deliver me according to Your word. 
Let my lips utter praise, for You teach me Your statutes.”  (Psalm 119:169-171)

Lord, You have given all that is
needed to live the life to which You have called all who come through
faith.  There are issues that get in the
way.  You are perfect and we are
imperfect, so we know where the issues come from.  You have promised to deliver all who come to
You from the wickedness of this world. 
It shall be done according to Your Word and in the way You have

Lord, I am impatient and want what I want when I see I want it.  Change my heart to trust in You alone.  Guide me according to Your goodness to live
into the life of faith You have given me and to trust in Your timing for all
things.  Let me not get carried away with
my thoughts, but instead spend my time focusing upon You and the promises which
You have already given.  Save me according
to Your will.

Lord Jesus, You have declared that we are already clean by grace through faith.  As to the rest of the life and its struggles, You have promised that these too are in Your hands.  Help me this day to live into the life of faith You have given me.  Diminish my anxiety and lift up my countenance that I would simply abide in You this day, doing what is pleasing in the Father’s sight.  Amen.
