Lord, I Know You Will Never Abandon Me Lord, in times of pride I parade my success, or fame or fortune for all the world to see. Then in times of illness I see how weak I really am, and how vain, Let me rather walk humbly with you. Let me trust in you, rather than in my own strength, let me step out with confidence in you, for your weakness is greater than all my strength.

Lord, I need new energy for life, to meet all its challenges again. I need your help, your strength, to overcome all the tiredness I feel. When I see others in full flight, see them glide through life with effortless ease and elation, I sometimes wonder why. I get so tired, and everything’s an effort, but only say the word, Lord, and I shall be healed.

Dear Jesus, At times I may not be attentive to Your presence. I need to take time out first to thank you for your goodness to me and then to recall those moments in my day when you were present though I may have not at first averted to it. Perhaps I may become more fully aware of my faults or of another’s kindness. Give me a seeing heart to appreciate all that you have done. Amen

Dear Jesus, At times I catch myself making quick unfair judgements about people and their activities. I fear this might be a sign of my own self-righteousness.
