A Blessed Life

Abba,

Let me love and be alert as I read your Word,

give me a soft, malleable heart willing to learn.

Open my ears to hear your instruction,

let your Word always be before me,

help me to treasure what you speak in the depths of my heart.

Your Word, your instruction, your counsel

bring life, healing, wholeness, and renewal,

healing and cleansing my heart, mind, and body.

Help me to guard my heart and all that you’ve done in me,

knowing the pleasant boundaries you’ve established

to keep me safe, whole, and happy.

Let your rivers of living water flow unhindered from my spirit,

and show me if and where there is anything blocking

that’s displeasing to you.

Please help me with my tongue,

let my yes be yes and my no be no,

help me to communicate clearly

and let me speak truth in love.

Direct my gaze straight,

give me strength to move forward

making the next right decision and the next,

bold as a lion in righteousness and courage.

Help me to make good choices,

considering the paths before me,

making sure my ways are steadfast and sure.

Give me blinders that I would not look right or left,

tempted by evil,

but continue on in the way you’ve set before me.

I thank you that you’re watching over me,

that you’re with me and I’m not alone.

Let me lead a blessed life according to your Word,

that others may see your goodness and praise you.

Amen.
