You Lead Me Daily

Heavenly Father I praise You for this day. I praise You for the weekend. I praise You for helping my wife and daughter plant a garden and I praise You for the well water to water it each day it does not rain. I praise You for allowing my son to go on a mission trip with others from our church to the Dominican Republic.  

Holy Spirit I ask that You would teach me wisdom, understanding and knowledge today. I ask that You would give me discernment so I can be better about what it is You are leading me to do. I ask that You help me be a living sacrifice for God so that I can determine and do His will. I also need help to continue to renew my mind so that I do not let distractions and sin enter into my thoughts. Help me to utilize my spiritual armor so that I can withstand the devil and his schemes. Help me to continue to drink deeply of the truth from Your word and to desire to sit up and devour Your word so that I am filled.  

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 the 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 over 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)
