Prayer for Saturday

My goal in life is to be as good of a person
my dog already thinks I am.
~ Author Unknown

Holy Spirit when I am weak, You give me strength to carry on. You comfort me each time I seek Your loving arms to lean on.

You are the Father that I need. You have the wisdom that I lack. You give me courage to succeed, when I alone, would have turned back.

I may have crosses in my life, but I will never know despair; for when I seek you in my strife, I know so well you will be there.

Prayer for Friday

Your life may be the only Bible some people read.
~ Author Unknown

Let me be a voice for the speechless,
Those who are small and weak;
Let me speak for all helpless creatures
Who have no power to speak.
I have lifted my heart to heaven
On behalf of the least of these –
The frightened, the homeless, the hungry.
I am voicing their pleas.
If I can help any creature,
Respond to a desperate call,
I will know that my prayer has been answered
By the God Who created them all.

Prayer for Thursday

If you are not living in joy,
you are out of integrity with your soul.
~ Michael Beckwith

Beloved God,
Show me the truth about this.
I now surrender all fears, doubts, and judgments, and invite the light of perfect consciousness to illuminate my path.
Pure love is present here and now, as God lives in every person I meet.
I send love and appreciation to all my associates, knowing with perfect confidence that he or she is guided by the same Great Spirit that guides me.
I am not separate from my brothers and sisters, but one with them.
I trust that my highest good is unfolding before me, and I accept the very best that love and life have to offer.
I am worthy of living in the kingdom of Heaven, even as I walk the earth. I claim it now.
Thank you, God, for loving me infinitely, and opening all doors for the highest good of all concerned. I receive Your love, and magnify it.
And so it is.

Prayer for Tuesday

You have to do the right thing…
You may never know what results come from your action.
But if you do nothing,
there will be no result.”
~ Mohandas K. Gandhi

Lord God, I do earnestly pray that thou wilt give me strength to break away, if I may be trying to free myself from habits that mar my character. May I not lose courage and fall back in the old ways, but by faith be led where I should go. Amen.

Prayer for Monday

You can easily judge the character of a man
by how he treats those who can do nothing for him.
~ James D. Miles

Father, You know the true content of my heart though others may be fooled by my words and actions. So it is with You that I must keep a short account and pray from a genuine heart that I will act in accordance to Your revealed will and think upon those things which are honest, just, pure, lovely, and of good report. Thoughts form in my mind before they are spoken from my mouth, so I pray that You would purify my mind, keep my tongue from evil, and enable me to stand for that which is honorable in Your sight so that I pass the tests of life and hear you say, “I am pleased with your integrity.” In the name of Jesus I pray. Amen.

Prayer for Sunday

If it is not right
do not do it;
if it is not true
do not say it.
~ Marcus Aurelius

Oh Almighty and Everlasting God.
Creator of Heaven, Earth, and the Universe:
Help me to be, to think, to act what is right,
because it is right;
Make me truthful, honest and honorable in all things;
Make me intellectually honest for the sake of right and honor
and without thought of reward to me.
Give me the ability to be charitable, forgiving and patient with my fellowmen –
help me to understand their motives and their shortcomings –
even as Thou understandest mine!
Amen, Amen, Amen.
