You are my mighty God who does not change. You reign over everything. You are the Lord of my successes and temporary setbacks. You don’t enjoy seeing me struggle in this life. However, You allow ups and downs in my life to draw me closer to You and to reveal Your greater purpose in my life. Help me, Father, to embrace what I cannot understand, to find sense in my pain. I come to You for Your strength and Your power. Make me always hope in You without ever wavering. I commit my today’s work to You, O Lord, so that my thoughts be established and my efforts may come to fruition. May I never be defeated. Help me grow in Your love without a strain of bitterness. May my present sorrow lead me to strength, to wisdom, to compassion, and above all closer to You more than ever before.
Through the grace of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen.
