Prayer for Grace and Strength
Lord God, I pray that you will fill my heart with the blessing of your Holy Spirit. Grant me this day the strength to be temperate in all things, diligent in my duties, and patient under my afflictions. Direct me in all my ways. Give me grace to be just and upright in all my dealings; quiet and peaceable; full of compassion; and ready to do good to all people, according to my abilities and opportunities. For the sake of my Savior, Jesus Christ, Amen.

Prayer for Spiritual Self-Esteem
Wherever you see _____, say your first name.
Thus says the Lord,
…who created you, O _____,
…who formed you, O _____:
Do not fear, for I have redeemed you;
I have called you by name _____ you are mine.
When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;
And through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you;
When you walk through the fire you shall not be burned,
And the flame shall not consume you.
For I am the Lord your God,
The Holy One of Israel, your Savior…
You are precious in my sight,
And honored, and I love you…
Can a woman forget her nursing child,
Or show no compassion for the child of her womb?
Even these may forget,
Yet I will not forget you.
See, I have inscribed _____ on the palms of my hands.
(Isaiah 43:1-4; 49:15-16)
