A Tuesday Prayer Letter

Dear Dad,

Please make my heart long for your words more than anything else.
Open my eyes so I can see amazing things in the Bible.
Unify my heart in fearing you and only you.
And satisfy me with your unfailing love.

I ask that all people, including me, would honour you and uphold your reputation by both our words and our actions.
I ask that your sovereignty would become tangible and evident in people and nature around the world.
And I ask that everything you want to happen today would happen.

I'm needy, spiritually, physically, emotionally, and mentally; please give me everything I need for today.
When I stumble and sin, please forgive me just like I forgive others and show them grace.
Don't put me on the path of temptation, because I'm not great at resisting it.
Please rescue me from the evil one.

And now I'm going to be happy because of everything you have done for me! I've cried for help so many times, and you always comfort me and save me through the hardest times. I want to trust you more and more with everything. You paid the ransom for my life; I'm yours now. And you are mine too! You won't hold yourself back from me, I get to know you.

How is it that you show me so much attention when I'm so small? I'm overwhelmed by how a God so powerful and famous shows so obviously that he cares about me and my life. Thank you for always being with me! Thank you that I don't have to be ashamed of myself anymore! Thank you so much for how you love me. I love you too. I'm looking forward to spending today with you.

On behalf of Jesus,
