P~ Dear Lord, you know I’m so weak when it comes to prayer. I ask that You would give me an increased desire to pray for people and that my prayers would help others to be filled Your presence and experience Your glory. I pray these things for myself, that I would understand what You desire of me and that my actions and words would give You glory. I also ask for patience while I wait to see answered prayer. I pray for joy in the midst of life’s daily inconveniences and annoyances. Thank you for loving me and choosing me to be Your child.
