Tonight, I am full of uncertainties: rushing water,
rocks and loosened stones. Above me, stars reach
connecting pieces of my scattered life, forming
constellations of doubt. But when all is quiet,
I hear Your presence pulsing outside my window.
You are pushing, persevering through broken waters,
to calm me after a day of storm. I may never know
what will be. But tonight I know You are near.

See if there is any offensive way in me,
and lead me in the way everlasting.

God does my every hunger feed;

Through every moment, night and day.

Patient, kind, and loving, too.
All things I am, can do, and be,
Through Christ, the Truth that is in me.

God is my health, I can’t be sick;
God is my strength, unfailing, quick;
God is my all, I know no fear,
Since God and love and Truth are here.
– Hannah More Kohaus

In living echoes of they tone;
As Thou hast sought, so let me seek
Thy erring children, lost and lone.

The precious things Thou dost impart;
And wing my words, that they may reach
The hidden depths of many a heart.

O fill me with Thy fullness, Lord,
Until my very heart o’er flow
In kindling thought and glowing word,
Thy love to tell, Thy praise to show.

O use me, Lord, use even me
Just as Thou wilt, and when, and where;
Until Thy blessed face I see,
Thy rest, Thy joy. Thy glory share.

32. For all whose journey
has only just begun,
who tread carefully
and heavy laden
along unfamiliar paths,
seeking guidance
from fellow travellers,
fearful of losing their way,
speed their journey, Lord,
keep them from harm,
and bring them safely
into their promised land,
your Kingdom where,
at last unburdened,
they might find their rest in you.

33. When travelling is hard;
mountains to climb,
rivers to cross,
storms that assail,
and in our own strength
we know that we shall fail,
Lord, reach out your hand
to guide us safely,
and without stumbling,
toward our journey’s end.

34. Your footsteps are not easy to follow,
for they lead not only to green pastures
where we find nourishment and rest,
but also desert and wilderness places
where we are vulnerable and alone,
and crowded and uncomfortable spaces
where we feel threatened and distressed.
Your footsteps are not easy to follow,
but you have walked this way before
and are never far from any one of us,
your Spirit guiding and instructing,
your arm supporting, your love supplying,
on this necessary path we tread.

Inspirational Prayers

35. God of the journey,
give sight to all
who have not found
the path to follow,
strength to those
who are walking
that you have trod,
and hope to those
growing weary
of the travelling,
that all might meet,
one glorious day,
at this journey’s end.

36. God of Grace
In whom I put my trust
Be my rescuer when sins ensnare
The liberator of my soul
The still small voice that says
‘Be free’

God of Love
In whom I put my trust
Be my joy and comfort at all times
The source of all my thoughts and words
The still small voice that says

God of Peace
In whom I put my trust
Be my tranquillity in times of turmoil
The steadying hand in raging seas
The still small voice that says
‘Be calm’

God of Power
In whom I put my trust
Be my confidence when faith is challenged
The sword and armour that protects
The still small voice that says
‘Be strong!’

37. It is a wonderful truth,
that you have already walked
the path that we now follow,
known hardship, temptation and suffering.
And with that knowledge deep in our hearts
we can follow you in confidence,
and when difficulties arise,
listen for your footfall.

38. When our faith is weak
grant us wisdom.
When our body is weak
grant us strength.
When our journey is long
grant us perseverance.

39. As I adventure with you today
be the compass that guides me,
the light that shines on my path,
the only one I follow.

As I adventure with you today
be the word that encourages,
the hand that reaches out,
each time I stumble.

As I adventure with you today
let me glimpse our destination,
and appreciate the places,
through which you lead me .

As I adventure with you today
be the strength I need to follow,
and as the day draws to a close,
let me rest in your embrace.

40. When the journey is hard
strength is failing,
we lose the path,
or fall,
you raise us up,
give hope.
You enable us
to continue on our way,
climb mountains,
or simply follow
day by day.

41. Transform our struggles
into victories
Transform our doubting
into certainty
Transform our stumbles
into confidence
Transform our sorrow
into worshipping
Gracious God, we pray.

Inspirational Prayers

42. When the question is ‘Why?’
be the voice that I hear
When the question is ‘Where?’’
be the guidance I need
When the question is ‘When?
Be the wisdom I seek
When the question is ‘How?’
be the strength I require
When my answer is ‘Yes!’
be the peace that I feel.

43. Help us overcome
our fears and doubts,
all that comes between
the things you ask of us,
and all that we believe
we are capable of.
Break down the barriers
that daily we create,
and enable us to become
all that you ask us to be.

44. For those struggling
through stormy seas,
growing weary
of the journeying
and losing sight
of their destination,
be the lighthouse
that guides them
past hidden dangers,
into calmer water
and the safe harbor
of your loving arms.

45. Bless all whose journey,
that search for faith,
acceptance and identity,
is made more difficult
by circumstance, doubt,
diversions, exhaustion,
stumbles along the road,
and the load they carry.
May they hear your voice,
and see your footsteps,
know how close you are,
lay down their burden,
reach for your hand
and allow you to lead
them into their promised land.

46. I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God. Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. Glory to him in the church and in Christ Jesus through all generations forever and ever! Amen.

47. For this reason we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to ask that you: May be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; that you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; strengthened with all might, according to His glorious power, for all patience and longsuffering with joy; giving thanks to the Father who has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light.

48. Lord, despite the challenges and struggles of yesterday, help me to focus on You, Your provision over my life and the blessings you continue to bestow upon me. Rather than complaining over what I don’t have, help me to focus in on all the wonderful things you’ve blessed me with. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

49. Lord, I don’t know what lay before me today, but I commit it all to you. Please give me strength and courage to get through the joys, challenges and happenings of the day. I thank you for my life and for all that I have; I commit this day to you. No matter what happens, I know you have me in the palm of your hand. In Jesus’ name I pray, amen.

50. God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference.

56. Dear Lord, I pray today that I will yield my spirit completely to You, that You may use me as You please. I pray that You will provide me opportunities to show people how much You mean to me. Give me discretion to know what to say and how to say it. Make me bold enough that I may proclaim salvation cheerfully and joyfully. I pray that the seeds You allow me to plant will grow and mature. I pray that You, Father, will water the seeds that You allow me to plant today. I am forever grateful for the cross; may I proclaim it in a contagious way today. Amen.
