I want to teach my students how
To live this life on Earth.
To face it’s struggles and it’s strife
And to improve their worth.
Not just the lesson in a book
Or how the rivers flow, But how to choose the proper path
Wherever they may go.
To understand eternal truth
And know the right from wrong,
And gather all the beauty of
A flower and a song.
For if I help the world to grow
In wisdom and in grace,
Then I shall feel that I have won
And I have filled my place.
And so I ask your guidance, God,
That I may do my part.
For character and confidence
And happiness of heart.
-James J. Metcalf
O Righteous and Most Precious Father, Almighty God. It is my prayer that you Bless everyone reading this prayer today. I pray that they will increase their confidence and be firmly persuaded to study and believe Your Word. I pray that they will have clarity of mind in all of their decisions, I pray that they will come to know Your love for them and their future. You said: Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health; even as thy soul prospereth in 111John 2.
I pray that their steps will be ordered by the Lord, that Your presence will go with them and You will give them rest. I pray that You will hold their right hand saying unto them: Fear not, I will help you. I pray that they will increase more and more them and their children. I pray that they will cast their burdens on you, knowing that you care for them. Father, strengthen hearts this day. I bind the spirit of confusion or fear and loose Godly wisdom and peace over each and every life in Jesus Name. Amen
Heavenly Father we come before you this day to pray for the lost in our families, in our friendships, in our acquaintances, amongst our neighbors and strangers. Father we love them as much as we love ourselves and we make no exceptions for this for this is your will. Father, we know that they are fearfully and wonderfully made. Today we ask you to give us a special anointing. A daring anointing! An anointing where we won’t hesitate, we won’t hold back about You. Father we are asking today for changes to come in our lives for all of these people; that we may see and hear marvelous testimonies from them as to how they were touched by the Spirit of the Living God. Father, we ask if you will help us and guide us to know that if we ask anything of you in faith being confidently convinced, then we shall have what we ask. We promise not to come back to you to remind you or to ask you if you forgot our prayer. We will be patient and continue to follow your lead and your Word. In the authority of Jesus we ask and pray, Amen.
