Dear Lord, I come to you today as humble as I know how thanking you for allowing me to see another day.  I lift up all of those that I love and care for in prayer asking for covering for us all in this upcoming week.  I pray for those that are weary, for those battling an illness, for those struggling in finances and for those with a grieving heart. May we be filled with your peace and joy and may we continuously be sustained by your grace.   I thank you for being my protector, my healer, provider and being present in all that I do.  You have brought me from a mighty long way and without you I am nothing and for that I thank you.  I ask that you cover and protect our military and continue to steer them out of harm’s way. Strengthen their families and loved ones and comfort them all in their absence.  I lift all of those suffering with homelessness and those uncertain as to where their next meal will come from, Lord touch their hearts and supply their needs.   Bless all of those that are less fortunate than we are and I pray for and am claiming a shift in their unfortunate circumstances.  Heavenly father I ask that you fill our hearts with more love, compassion and forgiveness so that we can be more like you Lord.   Thanking you for my being of sound mind because Lord you know I could have folded many years ago.   Thank you for all that you give and this beautifully blessed life that I live. I commit this day to you and ask you to go before us. In Jesus name we pray, Amen.

Proverbs 18:10 

The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous run into it and are safe.
