Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank you for caring for me, even in the midst of my emotional turmoil.  You have not abandoned me. You faithfully watch and note my upset, willing at any time to step into my life and help with my physical and emotional well-being.  Thank you for taking thought of me: “For a man’s ways are before the eyes of the LORD, and he ponders all his paths” (Prov. 5:21).  Thank you for being willing to serve me, to give me safety, to help me with all my issues: “Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” (Matt. 11:28).  Give me the courage to break the bondage of my own choices, and trust you with every aspect of my life.

Then Lord, let me be a lighthouse so others can have hope: “the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven” (Matt. 5:16).  Let people see hope, because I have acted in your hope, making it a reality, not a wish.  Let my family see the reality of a God who cares, who invades my life with a force of goodness that is safe and rewarding.  Let observers see you in me. Let observers trust you, because they see the reality of you in me. Make me the pointman for others who cannot trust you, until they see the evidence of your care in me.  Then let me publicly affirm your goodness, giving others hope. I pray this in Jesus’ precious name. Amen
