A Prayer for Guidance during Lockdown

3 Jun 2020, midnight

Father God, we are beginning to at last understand, that the things that are wrong with your world are the sum total of all the things that are wrong with us as individuals.

Yet, by making us in the Spirit of your own image, our hearts and minds can find no rest until they rest in you. We are perhaps, too Christian to enjoy sinning and too fond of sinning to fully enjoy Christianity.

Most of us know perfectly well what we ought to do; our trouble is, that deep down not all of our ’Self' wants to do it. Your guidance and strength is our only hope. So our honest prayer must be;

Knowing nothing is impossible for You, “Lead us heavenly Father lead us, and give us the determination and strength to continually seek Your Leading”.
