But it is good for me to draw near to God; I have put my trust in the Lord God, That I may declare all Your works. (Psalms 73:28 NKJV)
Holy Spirit, I want to be close to You and walk in the same direction as You. Protect me from paths that are not mine to take; give me strength and wisdom to declare the name of Jesus at every opportunity. Protect my friends and family; give them Your wisdom, too. Where they need healing, please heal them… where they need comfort, please comfort them… Where they are struggling, meet them where they are and remind them — Jesus didn’t promise a life of ease. But He did promise to walk through the storms and valleys with us. Help us to trust that truth — both in the highs and lows of our lives. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
