Good and Evil

Our Heavenly Father, we come to you as your children. We thank you for wanting the best for us and offering us so much just for the asking. You own and could control everything. You give us the free will to choose what kind of live we will live. You allow us to choose good or evil. We so often fail in our attempts to do good. We thank you for forgiving us of our failures. You offered your own Son as a sacrifice for our wrongs. We thank you for that even though we are so unworthy. We thank you for  giving us guidance and direction to an abundant life if we choose to follow you. We thank you for the rules that you give us that are there to protect us. We thank you for the strength you give us to follow those rules. We fail in our attempts when we try to do everything in our own strength. You are a God that wants us to depend on you and trust you to take care of us. I pray that you help us to do that. We pray that we would quit trying to do life on our own and depending on our own efforts. We want to do all we can and rely on you to do the things we cannot do. We thank you for working behind the scenes and doing so much on our behave that we do not even see. If we could know what you do for us, we would be overwhelmed and give you so much more praise. Help us to praise you in all things. You are the God of all things. There is nothing that we bring to you that you cannot handle and that you will not help us through.

We pray that you would help those that have been sucked into evil. That they would be able to overcome and turn from their wicked ways that they may experience life as you have planned. You have created us all beautiful and wonderful and have a plan for each of us. You have a plan to prosper us and not to harm us. We pray that we would realize that and want what you have to offer us. Help us to repent of our wrongdoing and follow that narrow path that will give us eternity to worship you and spare us from the weeping and gnashing of teeth that will be our eternity if we do not depend on your son Jesus Christ to redeem us from our sins. We ask that you would restore the time we have spent in evil and reverse all the evil that we have been a part of that you will receive glory for the change that is  made in us and others would be drawn to you through our change. We pray that we would know what you want us to do to lead others to you.

We pray all this in Jesus name, Amen
