Lord, I come to you asking for your will in my life. I pray that you will place your fingerprints on my life and people will see you. I pray that my motives be right Lord!
Lord, I am not sure what you are asking from me, but my heart is willing. I am not sure how to witness, or speak, but Lord I can write. I ask that my facebook posts be glorifying to you and that you will use them! I ask that your voice is heard and not mine. That everything I post or say is pointed to you and not myself. God cleanse me from deep within, so that my motives are pure and that my prayers line up with your will. I ask that no matter what happens in my life, the circumstances do not sway my trust and faith in you.
I ask that your character becomes mine. I ask that you become my everything. that my love and joy and peace and all the fruit of the spirit become more and more into my life that others will see it and wonder what is going on. Then I can be able totell them the goodness of you.

thank you for all you do Lord. I don’t even deserve it. I am nothing without you Lord and yet my pride seems to get in the way. I Ask Lord that you will take all of the things that are coming between you and I and toss them away. Lord help me to balance my life with wisdom. Help me to realize that its ok to enjoy life because you have made it for us! I ask that my bills and finances become better Lord. I don’t know how to budget at all God and I don’t want to do anything that would bring my family into more debt. Help me Lord to look to you and seek you even in my money.

I ask Lord that if it be your will to take away everything, that my faith would not be shaken. God give me a heart knowledge of you. I am so scared that I may be fooling myself. I never thought of you as a king. infact unless its about hell or the fear of going, I tend to come before you with demand rather than reverence. God help me to remember that you are my king, and not my servant! Help me to have the joy that others will see and desire.

Help me Lord! I need you more than anything! I need you to take over my marriage, my fear, my job, my bills, my life, my family, my church, my ministries….my everything!

God I give you total control……no matter what you need to do Lord give me the strength and courage to do it. I ask Lord that I long to come before you and open your word. I ask Lord that I desire to read and learn more than anything else. I want to stand before you one day and not be ashamed at how my life was lived.

I need more love Lord. I need your compassion. I need your patience and joy! holy spirit, I give you full control of my being. Do with me as you see fit. teach me to pray. teach me to love, teach me the joy of your salvation. Thank you for allowing me to remember the verses I have been going over. Help me to hide them in my heart.
I thank you for the joy and peace I have right now as I write this. Lord I ask that as I enter the work night, that you will be evident in my actions and my words. Keep my mouth quiet if it means down grading someone else Lord.

I thank you for loving me Lord. All I am, all I have, it is yours Lord.

Lord, tonight I am lonely. am I doing something wrong? Am I not being friendly enough? I tried with tiffany, but it was impossible with joe and her not wanting to be friends. I tried with Julie, but she has so much going on. Do you have a friend for me? am I neglecting  someone I should be friends with?

Lord, am I pleasing you with what I do everyday? I often think I am just not good enough. What would people have to say if they were at my funeral? I just don’t see my worth Lord. I don’t see any value in myself.

I am not wanting to believe this of course, but its in my heart. nothing I Am doing is making a lasting effect in my mind. However,  Lord I am doing it for you. you said whatever I do for the least, I do it for you. Could thi smean what I did today? taking connie her favorite candy?

Maybe it does. So Lord, I will trust you. I don’t believe this wed. night study is for me Lord. I am thinking I should just for now, stick with the sunday school. I am just going to trust you Lord for friends, and my future. Lord, I worry sometimes deep inside. I worry about if we will have the money, if we will make it alone. I am worried about kevin’s possible talk on Monday. Lord, could you allow him to not get talked too? Could you make it possible for him to just not get spoken too? But Lord, if its in your will, please be with him that day. I know it will make him feel horrible Lord. Please Lord, just comfort him. Lord he does such a good job. I am so thankful for him Lord.

Tonight I place all these things in your hands. But Lord, whatever it takes for me to be like you, let it be.

Aside

Father, I had such a great time today. I cannot believe the fun we had! My anxiety was calm until I kept thinking about work. I never meant too, but from time to time Brandon and the job slipped into my brain. Lord, I am so uncomfortable with him, yet I don’t feel like I have the right to say anything because there is nothing to say. His attitude isn’t a reason to bring him up. This makes me nervous because I don’t like people who tell me what I should and should not do. I cant always help how I smile or don’t.

Anyways, my mind slip to the dentist as well. Lord, I don’t want that day to come. I am scared of what needs to be done. Will we be able to afford it? how many will need work done?
Then I feel ugly Lord. I feel fat and unwanted. I feel like I am not beautiful or anything like that.

please take these burdens. Thank you Lord for doing so. I thank you so much Lord for the day today. the fact that you allowed us and myself to enjoy it, was wonderful.

Lord, I feel like I Don’t measure up. I just feel like I don’t fit in with others.
God show me how to have compassion. Tomorrow we go visiting Lord, and I ask for your compassion, love, grace. Make me a servant. I love you lord and I give you all of me.

I remember in your word today that you will allow confidence and quietness. I am choosing to do that today. I am choosing to not let my heart be stirred by fear. I praise you for the strength you give. I don’t deserve it Lord. I thank you for the dentist being a woman. I am very grateful for that.

Lord, I am worried about the heat and working outdoors. So lord I ask that if it is possible and your ok with it, please allow me to work indoors, but Lord, if you see that I am ok with working outside, then God allow me to remain cool and able to do what needs to be done.

I ask that your will be in this. Lord I want to serve, my heart is right, but at times I don’t know what my gifts and talents are. I believe it’s encouragement as one, so I want you to use that if that is the case. Lord, I give you full control and ask that I am an ambassador for you on this earth. Lord I don’t want to have any regrets when I die. I want to hear well done from you Lord.
Please allow me to lay down my crown before you with no shame! Please let my rewards reflect my life. God I am sorry that I am not doing more. I pray Lord that since I am still young I will see what needs to change now so I can stand before you on my death bed ready to see you and hear well done!

Aside

Lord, this really bothers me what cathy and steve did. I don’t understand how they could knowingly put people in danger and think that they deserve sympathy.
I am not sure how to handle it Lord, but it really bugs me when mom steps in and tries to do things for them. as if to feel sorry for them. Lord, soften my heart towards them as you have been, because I cant get over how people, including myself can get away with things. they aren’t going to say, “oh wow maybe we should just do it the right way.” nope they are going to blame, at least my sister will, everyone else and then have a pity party if he goes back to rehab.

all she had to do was get him some prescribed sleeping pills. that’s it. Now its going to be poor schoonover family. I don’t feel sorry for them at all. maybe I am a horrible person lord, but I just don’t.

I wish we never moved up here at all. I wish we would have moved somewhere else. why is lynn going through so much crap and is so faithful….and cathy who isn’t seems to be the center of the focus?
God Iknow I need to love, and I am willing to do that, but what do you do when it seems like people continue to do the same thing over and over? Am I supposed to say, oh well you should not have to answer for it?
I know I will if I keep behaving as I have been.,…..but why don’t they? I should not be excited they finally got caught, but I am. I am sorry he has to lose his job, but if she would have just done what was the right thing, it would have worked out.
Help me to look past this lord, because mike and les are coming and it is going to get worse. I just don’t understand why we have to live here? why did I ever want to move here Lord? its just going to be them against the “Christian girl”.

I pray that cathy will surrender her walk to you Lord. I pray that she will stop doing it herself, and start doing it your way.

I pray Lord that steve will become a Christian. Lord, I don’t know why shes not being an example and trying.

I pray lord that I too will be an example for you. that I wont be a hypocrite as I have been.
I pray Lord for my mouth and keeping it shut. Help me know when to speak and when not too.

and I pray for my frustrations with my mom. it seems like most in my family do what is right when its convenient and if it means standing for the truth, they don’t.
