Lord, we ask that you give us the strength to be obedient to you regardless of what’s going on in our lives. Allow us to not fall into sinful habits, prevent us from treating people poorly, encourage us to take care of our health, and empower us to manage your finances appropriately. Let us not cheat you of what you are owed. Convict us if we try to veer from your clearly laid instructions for living. All these things we ask in your son Jesus Christ’s name, Amen.
