My father, who is in heaven. Great is Your name. Everyday, I want to deepen my respect and understanding of who you are. I commit to learning and adopting your will for my life. Please give to me my daily bread. Lead me not into temptation. Deliver me from the mistakes that I continue to make. All glory belongs to you. All honor belongs to you. You are the creator of all. With a thankful heart, I look to you.

1 John 5:13-15 says, “I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God that you may know that you have eternal life. And this is the confidence that we have toward him, that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us. And if we know that he hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests that we have asked of him.”
