Father, this is my prayer,
that I would not be consumed by this world and its standards. I’m sad to admit I am often to preoccupied with grades and friendships, and forget Your presence. I become overwhelmed and anxious about this life–although, I shouldn’t. I pray that my eyes will be fixed on You and Your splendor. May I be bold in Your word alone and firm in myself.
I pray, Father, that I will see my worth. Not measure myself based of human standards, but Your love. I pray certain things will have little to not at all influence over me. I pray that the devil will not close my mind and eyes to You. But as Jehoshaphat prayed in 2 Chronicles 20:12b, that though I do not know what to do, my eyes will always be on You.
Give me the strength and endurance to keep running this race and my coming closer to You. I pray that I will stop worrying about saving my life tomorrow, when I’m too occupied to save it today. I pray I will work in today and see how I can influence people for Your glory.
Tomorrow is tomorrow and there will always be a tomorrow. But, today is today, may I live for today.
