Heavenly Father, please give us a heart of dependance upon you. As we consider our circumstances and struggles in life, keep us falling to our knees in prayer, crying out to you for the things we need. Keep us longing for your work in us through every difficulty and joy. Please mould us and renew our character, bringing about good through all situations. Transform us into Christ-like people who persevere through suffering until an unfaltering hope emerges. Stir us to love what you love and as you love. Help us to be people who seek your kingdom and look forward to others coming to hear of your salvation. Keep us calling upon you to do what you have promised.
In Jesus name,
