A Prayer for our Thoughts

Lord,
When we fall asleep at night to refresh ourselves from the task of the day,
you are there forever protecting us.
When we arise in the morning ready to go at it again,
you are there forever protecting us.
Help us Lord to recognize that each time we arise, we should discover a fresh admiration for YOU as you never slumber or sleep.
Help us Lord to not waste away our thoughts on meaningless things.
Help us Lord to be THANKFUL when we arise, to look for the opportunities you place before us that benefit your kingdom and not this world.
Search our hearts Lord and reveal any wicked thoughts hindering us from pleasing you.
You gave us eyes to see, ears to hear and mouths to speak. Give us BOLDNESS Lord to show your love, your understanding, your promises and the peace Lord that comes from your unbroken communion with us.
How precious to me are your thoughts, God! How vast is the sum of them!
Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand – when I awake, I am STILL with you
Psalm 139:17-18
