Dear Heavenly Father, Lord, I don't feel like I have any power right now. It seems things have spiraled out of control. My world swirls about me and all I can do is look at it. I want to change my life but do not know how. I want the power to deal with adversity but do not know how to find it. I want out of the circumstances I am in but I do not know what to do. You are my last resort but I know you should be my first resort. Of all the people I know who can help me the most at a time like this, it is you, O Lord. Let me not stand in the way of your will for me. Let me use my adversity to grow so I can do your will. Let me use my adversity to gain wisdom and strength in your holy name. Although I am on a journey I did not want to take, I know as I conform my will to your will, my journey will lead me to you. I affirm you are the source of all power, all ideas, all love, and all compassion. In faith, I proclaim you as my guide, my lord, and my savior. In faith, I shall not turn back but shall walk your walk for me without complaint. All these things I humbly pray in the name of Lord and my Ever-present Holy Spirit upon whom I can rely. Amen and Amen.
