A Prayer for Clarity and Change

Beyond Perception: A Journey of Growth. The Essence of Progress: From Process to Result

Lord, thank you for the awareness of your presence in my life, even in times of my limited understanding. Your awareness serves as a reminder to focus amidst the many distractions. Lord, encourage me to see beyond the things that I perceive, for what they truly are. In doing so, the decisions that I face may not be made based on my limited understanding.

Through patience and growth, may the decisions I make be acceptable in your presence. My ways are driven by passion, but they often do not lead to a better direction. However, through the recognition of my actions, change is initiated. If I expect to see changes around me, may those changes begin within me. If my actions have caused offense to my fellow men, knowingly or unknowingly, I seek your forgiveness. May I become a better man and mend those broken fences.

And if anyone has wronged me, let it not be a distraction that prevents me from seeing the many good things ahead that you have in store for me. Lord, help me to see beyond the things that I perceive, to their true essence.

Progress is the formation of new things. May I learn to accept progress. A process will eventually lead to results. Let me learn to look beyond the process to the result. Even when I’m weary, may my strength not be predicated on the tasks I’m undertaking or the progress that is unfolding, but on the results that are yet to come.




May the Lord give to you, according to the riches of His glory, with might to be strengthened through His Spirit, in regard to the inner man.
Ephesians 3:16
