Maybe you don’t address God in that manner but I talk to God like I might talk to you. I am not being irreverent but I have a wonderful relationship with my Heavenly Father and I am comfortable in just being me in my conversations with Him. If you were to overhear my talking to him it might sound like the following.
You have given me another year. Thank you.
For life and strength and health I am so blessed that there are no major complications.
You are such an awesome Father and I adore and worship you. There are no words to describe my love for you and if I spent a lifetime in just praising you it would not convey all that is in my heart.
You never fail to listen. Your words are life and strength. Your corrections and instructions for my life are covered in love and they are rich in mercy and grace. I stand amazed by your love for me and feel so unworthy. It is your love and forgiveness that makes me worthy to be called your child.
Like any child to a parent, there are always the “wants.” I know you care about these, but never let me forget that you are not just there for the wants and needs but that you care more about who I am and that I live this life according to your ways.
At the beginning of this year, I just want to praise you and tell you how much you mean to me. You are everything I need. You are my comfort. You are my peace. I worship and adore you Father God.
God, These are the things I need you to help me with this year:I
I want your help in all my relationships and friendships.Help me see the value that you see in others and not to prejudge according to my standards.
Help me see the value that you see in others and not to prejudge according to my standards.Let me look beyond the obvious and see great possibilities.
Let me look beyond the obvious and see great possibilities.
Help me draw close to your heart and make a difference in my world.
Change those things in my life that are not pleasing to you.
Lord let the prayer that David prayed be mine:
“Create in me a clean heart O God and renew a right spirit within me
Cast me not away from your presence Oh Lord and take not your
Holy Spirit from within me. Restore unto me the joy of your salvation
And uphold me by your generous Spirit. Psalms 51:10-12
Thank you for listening. We will talk about other things I am sure, but this is quite a list for now and only you know where this will take me.
I love you God – Amen
