Prayer of RededicationDear Lord,
I want to thank you for hearing my prayer and helping me to be patient. Lately, I've been wanting things to go my way, hoping too, that others around me would be responsive and helpful. As you know, this hasn't been happening. But, I see where I've been going wrong by putting my faith and trust in others—hoping that they would respond to my needs—and of course, that has not happened.
But, good Lord, I've returned to the Bible and your Word and have been praying for guidance and prayer. By returning to what is important—you—my attitude has changed and instead of focusing on others and events to meet my needs, I have turned to you and have found the love, purpose, and direction I have been seeking.
Thank you, Jesus, for helping me, loving me, and showing me the way.
You are the only one who gives freely, with love to anyone who asks. The simplicity of it all, still astounds me!
