Anyone who is having troubles should pray.  Anyone who is happy should sing praises.  James 5:13
Dear Father in Heaven,  You cover all the bases.  Whether we are mired in problems and challenges or riding high in our life style, You are to be honored and recognized as our ultimate source.  Thank You for providing the complete relationship formula for those of us who know You and receive You as Father and King.  In Jesus’ ever-reliable name, I pray.  Amen.

I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.  John 8:12
Dear Father in Heaven,  You are the needed contrast.  We either follow You in open reality or stumble through a dark life, lost and hopeless.  Thank You for rescuing me from the pit of darkness into Your marvelous light.  Please forgive me of my sins and selfish ways that persist even beyond knowing You are who You say You are.  Help me to follow you in a consistency that pl;eases You.  I crave walking in Your light.  In Jesus’ illuminating name, I pray.  Amen.

 I ask the Father in His great glory to give you the power to be strong inwardly through His Spirit.  Eph 3:16
Dear Father in Heaven, Thank You for responding favorably to Paul’s prayer on my behalf.  I need and want Your power within me to function properly in my daily activities.  Without You, I can do nothing.  With You, I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me.  In Jesus’ beautiful name, I pray.  Amen.

God has given a Son to us… His name will be Wonderful Counselor, Powerful God, Prince of Peace.  Isaiah 9:6
Dear Heavenly Father,  Please forgive me for being in a funk the last day or so.  I feel so hampered and immobilized; almost hopeless with this knee situation.  It’s hard for me to adjust to the slow pace of recovery.  Part of me thinks I made a mistake.  On the other hand, even if I did, there is no turning back to change the current reality of my being on board with a better attitude.  I look to You for strength; to be my Wonderful Counselor, my Powerful God, and my Prince of Peace.  In Jesus’ mighty and incorruptible name, I pray.  Amen.
