Focuses for prayer:
Monday: Loving my family

I'm so grateful today is a new day and a fresh start. Help me to remind myself I am free of my past through You and my mountains can be conquered. Please give me strength and dependance on You. Thank you for Your patience and unconditional love.
Fear not, for I am with you;
Be not dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you,
Yes, I will help you,
I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.
How Can I Pray for My Future Spouse to Keep Commitments? (Page 186 of Gunn and Goyer's book we've been going through)
Adapted from Gunn and Goyer's Praying for Your Future Husband (page 168):
Pray Your Future Spouse will be Content and Develop Patience. As with all Scripture, praying slowly and meditatively through it is one method of praying to God!
Philippians 4:11-13, "I have learned how to be content with whatever I have. I know how to live on almost nothing or with everything. I have learned the secret of living in every situation, whether it is with a full stomach or empty with plenty or little. For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength."

Prayers for Intimacy
Pray is a powerful tool by design. Keeping ourselves focused on the Lord's kingdom will allow the rest of our relationships to thrive in return. First, we must seek Him so He can then lead us.
Father, hallowed be Your name. We pray may we continue to prostrate ourselves before You. Lead our path and guide our ways. Allow us to know Your heart, seeking it with zeal. May we abide in You whom is the vine and the vinedresser. You dwell within us so that we may know how to follow you. Lord, you allow us to grow only in righteousness so take hold of us firmly, being our foundations, nutrients, and providence. Give us strength when we feel weak. Comfort us in Your presence. May we find rest at Your feet Lord. Amen.
