A Prayer About Our Need To Follow God. Dear Heavenly Father, We hear your call, O Lord. We see the path before us and we see your signs pointing the way we should go. When we are tempted to go our own way, touch our hearts and remind us of your commandments. When we are caught up in trying to survive this world, show us your eternity. When we are amazed at what is in the world, show us you are more amazing. When we try to figure things out, show us you are the true source of wisdom. When we believe we can do all things on our own, by ourselves, with our own power and strength, show us that our true power and strength come directly from you. When we falter and let life slip through our fingers, show us we are to grasp ahold of you, grasping the hem of your garment. All these things we humbly pray in the name of Jesus Christ the Son and the Holy Spirit who lives within us. Amen and Amen.
