Heavenly Father I praise You for allowing us to participate and have the opportunity to walk in the plans You have for us. I praise You for loving us enough, to trust us to follow when You lead. I praise You for the fellowship I have with Your Spirit daily.  

Holy Spirit Your word says, “A man’s heart plans his ways, but the Lord directs his steps. Instead, you ought to say, “If the Lord wills, we shall live and do this or that.” [Proverbs 16:9; James 4:15] I attempt to make plans for each day, week, month, and year, but I also stay open to the moving of Your Spirit in my life. I do my best to be wise in what I attempt to do, but I also try to listen very closely to Your voice and follow Your lead. I live each day, seeking You, seeking the path You have laid out before me, and most of all, I seek to do Your will. None of my plans mean anything if they do not align with Yours. I do my best to order my days and my times so that I can do Your will.  

I pray and ask that I may be filled with the knowledge of Your will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; that I may walk worthy of You, fully pleasing, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of You; strengthened with all might, according to Your glorious power, for all patience and longsuffering with joy; giving thanks to the Father who has qualified me to be a partaker of the inheritance of the saints in the light. You have delivered me from the power of darkness and conveyed me into the kingdom of the Son of Your love, in whom I have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins. You are the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. For by You, all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through You for You. And You are before all things, and in You, all things exist. And You are the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things You may have the preeminence. In Your blessed Son Jesus’ name, Amen. (Colossians 1:9-18)
