Blessings & Prayers

Be strong and of good courage; be not afraid, neither be dismayed: for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.

Joshua 1:9

Father, when I feel lost or alone, you teach me I can have great courage in your strength and direction. You teach me through the promises of your Word how faithful you are and that you have an answer to all my questions and longings. I can trust you to handle any obstacles that come my way. I can trust you to give me the patience I seek. Thank you for holding me securely as I walk through this land. You have the whole universe’s best interest in your hands. Your principles do not change.

They who handle a matter wisely shall find good: and those who trust in the Lord, happy are they. Proverbs 16:20

Your word, O Lord, is eternal; it stands firm in the heavens. Your faithfulness continues through all generations; you established earth, and it endures. Your laws endure to this day, for all things serve you.

Psalm 119: 89-91

When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow you: when you walk through the fires, you shall not be burned; nether shall the flame kindle upon you.

Isaiah 43:2

This is the day that the Lord has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.

Psalm 118:24

For Thee are my hope, O Lord, God. Psalm 71:5

God, I offer myself to Thee-to build with me and to do with me as Thou Wilt. Relieve me of the bondage of self, that I may be better to do Thy Will. Take away my difficulties, that victory over them may bear witness to those I would help of Thy Power, Thy Love, and thy way of Life. May I do Thy Will always.

AA Step 3 Prayer

Lord you know what is best for me. Give me what you will, as much as you will, and when you will. Do with me as you know best, as it most pleases you, and as is most to your honor. I am your creature and in your hands. Lead me where you will. I am your servant, ready to do all things that you command, for I desire not to live for myself but for you.

O God, refresh and gladden my spirit. Purify my heart. Illumine my powers. I lay all my affairs in Thy hand. Thou art my guide and my refuge. I will no longer be sorrowful and grieved, I will be a happy and joyful being. O God, I will no longer be full of anxiety, nor will I let trouble harass me. I will not dwell on the unpleasant things of life. O God, Thou art more friend to me than I am to myself. I dedicate myself to Thee O Lord.

Lord, increase my faith and trust in your good intentions for me. Help me to go about my life confident that whatever happens to me will ultimately work out for the best.
