Dear Lord, it’s another test today, another struggle, another challenge. Lions and lessons and lizards, oh, my. Everyday something new. Yet, your blessings are new each day. Give us the courage to face the giants today, Father. Give us peace of mind and recall to excel in our lessons and testing today. Give us the victory over the small stuff that creeps and crawls into our hearts, minds and homes. Show us your power and glory. Make your presence known and show yourself to those who need to know you most. Keep our minds stayed on Jesus. I ask these things in the name and authority of your Son, and according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you.” (Isaiah 26:3 ESV)
