Give Me Strength

If you start thinking to yourselves, “I did all this. And all by myself. I’m rich. It’s all mine!”—well, think again. Remember that GOD, your God, gave you the strength to produce all this wealth so as to confirm the covenant that he promised to your ancestors—as it is today. – Deuteronomy 8:18 The Message


Lord, I thank You for all the spiritual, physical, and financial gifts You have showered upon me. You give me the physical strength to go out each day to work and support myself and my family. Your Word gives me the spiritual strength to battle the schemes that the evil one throws into my path. Thank You for hearing my prayers, morning after morning, strengthening me for the work ahead. Amen.
