Saturday Prayer 52

Unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain. Unless the LORD watches over the city, the guards stand watch in vain. (Psalm 127:1 NIV)

oh, Father,
keep me from failed efforts
and fruitless labors
in this day and the coming year.
I stop and bring all my hopes
and developing dreams
into Your presence.
may my desires and thoughts
be shaped according to
Your desires and thoughts.
may any plans or action steps
come from the overflow
of my will guided by Yours.
Jesus said, “apart from Me
you can do nothing,”
and so I humbly yield to You.
lead me, guide me, and speak to me.
shape, refine, and correct me.
may I step forward under Your light
or not step forward at all.
I lean into Your strong love.
I submit to Your boundless wisdom.
I love You and worship You.

Amen.
