PRAYER GUIDE, SPECIFIC SITUATIONS, 06.08.19,
APPLYING GOD’S PRINCIPLES TO SPECIFIC SITUATIONS, 06.08.19
Father, I commit each & every situation, encounter, interaction, transaction, & all that I undertake/do to YOU.
Therefore, I ask today, in this situation, as I commit this undertaking/interaction/social discourse to YOU, that You will establish my very thoughts, so that the right words will come out of my mouth.
I want only those words which serve Your purpose to be spoken/to come out of my lips; so Father, “set a guard over my mouth, & keep watch over the door of my lips,” & give me the very words to speak just as they are needed.
Enable me to stop/think/pray before I speak, even in the midst of ongoing social interactions, that I can check in/out with You. Keep my ears attentive to the other person’s words, before jumping in & speaking my piece. Enable me to receive Your Holy Spirit’s leading, so I can make those exact right responses as needed.
I acknowledge that You know so much better than I do, not only what Your purpose is, but also what will be effective in achieving that purpose. Therefore, I submit & surrender every thought, every word, every action/interaction, & have no need to attempt to figure it out for myself, but rather have peace in knowing I can depend on You for whatever I need to say or do/respond to. I am so grateful that I can count on You to provide me with the right line of action/inaction &/or interaction. I am so grateful to have You as my personal guide. What a privilege! Let me listen & do in accordance with Your guidance, & keep my flesh out of Your Way. For I rather fear doing my own thing, & getting in Your Way, thus missing out on Your best & fulfilling Your purpose. I much rather depart from my way, & rely on/follow YOU/Your Way.
So, Holy Spirit, lead & guide me in the way which I should go, for You are my teacher and my guide in all things. In Jesus/Yeshua’s Holy Name, I pray. Amen.
