Prayer for Tuesday

Help me, Lord, to remember
that though I am prone to weakness
yet through you
I am strengthened within
by the power of your Spirit.

Help me, Lord, to remember
that though I am made of dirt
your work is being done in me
and through my weakness
your perfection is completed.

Help me to see within and around me
the evidence of your grace,
the presence of your power,
the completeness of your love
the witness of your wisdom.

Help me to delight each hour
in your will for my life,
to accept that your ways are not my ways,
to know that you have counted all my days
and to not resent, fear or deny

that all those who live godly lives
will somehow suffer persecution
and yet find that our sufferings
are not fit to be compared
with the glory that will one day

be revealed in us.
