Lord Jesus, please help me start my day with a positive outlook on life, on all the blessings you have granted me, on all the miraculous transformations you have brought about in my life by lifting me out of several challenging situations. Lord Jesus, help me start my day, with strengthening my faith in your deep love for me, in your best plans for me way better than my own and thus lifting me out of my disappointments and resulting sadness at things not working out according to my expectations. Lord Jesus, grant me patience to await your mercies and endurance and tolerance to accept and go through my restlessness and pain during the interim period until you grant your mercies upon me. Lord Jesus, you are all merciful and compassionate, you are all powerful and can make anything happen. Please Lord shower your mercies upon me, lift me out of my expectations that are not in your plans for me, release me from my restlessness, pain and disappointments and lead me on the path you have chosen for me, so that I can find joy in what I do. Lord Jesus, please do not think I am greedy and I keep asking unceasingly, but I have no one to turn to, besides you. You are my sole confidante, my friend, my protector, my guide and my guardian and I place my trust in your care. Do with me as you please, make things happen to me according to your will and plans and just transform me mentally, emotional to accept your plans, grant me wisdom to be able to see through your plans and equip me with knowledge, ability, tools and courage to do as you please. I ask for similar blessings for all my loved ones so that they come to you every moment of their life, so that their hearts, lives and homes are filled with peace, joy, love and goodness and their intentions are taken care of according to your will. I ask for transformation of my relationships so I achieve peace. Protect my babies Lord and keep them in your care. Help me with opportunities to connect with them. With my babies around, I need no other relationship..Thank you again and again for your blessings. I seek miraculous cure for those suffering from illness, I seek that all loved ones separated for whatever reason are united, I seek life partners for those who are seeking a companion, I seek jobs for the unemployed and protection of jobs for those working hard to keep them. Please take charge of all these intentions Lord.
