40 Days of Prayer for Youth

Day 11, May 8.

Dear Lord,

Come change our hearts today.  Show us how to love as You have loved us.  Open our hearts and minds as we engage in our activities, and help us die to ourselves daily so that we may be made new in You.  As we run the race, as we face trials and temptations every hour, allow us to continue to run the path You marked out for us with perseverance.  Allow us to trust in You, the author and perfector of our faith, and help us to maintain that complete joy in You despite the darkness of this world.  Father, let us fix our eyes on You, be the center of our attention.  Let our lives be a testament of Your faith, and let these meager bodies bring glory to Your name.  Father, we love You.  Come change our hearts today, tomorrow and every day succeeding.

Amen

Hebrews 12:1-2 …let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. 2Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfector of our faith…
