Good mornin’ DearHeart. This prayer is worth sharing. It stuck with me and I kept going back to read it one more time.
‘O Lord Most High, You rule over the heavens and the earth, for You made all things by Your great power, and You keep them existing and working by Your mighty Word. You are exalted above every star and galaxy in the cosmos…yet You are also “the God of all mankind”,
personally involved God who loves, rescues, and takes care of all who trust You.
I praise You for Your sovereignty over the broad events of my life and over the details. With You,
nothing is accidental,
nothing is incidental
and no experience is wasted.
You hold in Your own power my breath of life and my destiny.
And every trial that You allow to happen is a platform on which You reveal Yourself, showing Your love and power, both to me and to others. Thank You that I can move into the future nondefensively, with hands outstretched to whatever lies ahead, for You hold the future and You will always be with me, even to my old age….and through all eternity.
