Dear Lord, in a world that is filled with such uncertainty and empty promises, where things change from one day to the next, from one hour to the next, You alone are reliable. You alone are unchanging and always present. We can always count on You. You are good, all the time. You never leave us on our own. Help me to see that. Help me to truly believe in Your presence in my life and no longer feel your absence. Help me to stop trying to change You and instead start trying to change me. Help me to look to You, not as a last resort, but as my first choice, in all things. Please teach me how to pray to You. Show me what it is that I need to change first, what I need to change most. Help me to start where You want me to. Please help me to change my own behavior so that I may live as You desire. Help me to be less concerned with the changes others are making, or not making, in their lives and simply do my best to improve my own. Dear Lord, help me not to fear change because I know that no matter what happens, You will always be there with me. Amen.

Dear Heavenly Father, I thank you for revealing Your Love for me in the person of Your Son, Jesus Christ. I thank you for creating me, and I know that through Jesus I can have a brand new life and become a new creation! I want this new life. I know that only in You is my happiness to be found and I want to discover your plan for my life. Yet I am still so stuck on my own plans and can't seem to let go.
Please grant me the grace to surrender everything to you. Help me to be open to a New Way! Help me to Trust in Your Fatherly Goodness and Guidance. Help me to stay close to you in prayer as you reveal yourself to me more and more each day. Help me to become the person You want me to be. Help me to do the things you want me to do and say the things you want me to say. Help me to be less concerned with what others are doing and saying, and be more concerned that I don't miss any opportunities to bring Your Love to them. Amen.
