Prayer based on Luke 12:22-34

Meditation on Luke 12:22-34

Lord, save me from anxiety about my past, present, and future.  Help me accept what has been lost in my past and remember what has been by YOUR grace gained.  

Today let me see all you have provided and not focus on the things I lack.   Help me accept the struggles of today as part of a process leading to some greater good.  Give me the wisdom to now choose sin to win over my current problems.   Those things that most concern me let me release to you and let me live only in this present moment and be aware of this present moment.   Help me not put financial and physical well-being ahead of doing what is right and wise. 

Put in me today a hunger and thirst for righteousness.  Help me seek to have YOU rule over all aspects of my life.  Help me confess more, repent more, and follow more.  Transform my heart to make my priorities right.   Make my desires conform to YOUR desires.  Convert my heart to become like YOUR heart.  

Let me hand over the future to YOU.  Help me not worry about things that may never happen.  Help me live by faith and not fear.  Help me treasure YOUR kingdom more than I value wealth, popularity, or power.  Good Lord, be the treasure of my heart. 

Lord have mercy, Messiah have mercy, Lord have mercy.  Amen
