Prayers leading to Christmas – 2
O Lord God, you who control the ways of the universe, without it controlling you, grant me self control. Send forth your Holy Spirit, to help me bear much fruit, by having self control. Forgive me for the times when I’ve misused my thoughts, logic and impulses, for selfish and worthless pursuits. I ask for wisdom, wherever I lack it, and humility wherever I need it in life. O good Jesus, lead me on the right path, and let me not fall prey to foolish desires and immaturity. Send forth your ministering angels, to go out before me, and destroy all the plans of the Enemy, that have been laid out for me. Like how Joseph was warned in a dream, to avoid danger to his family, so grant me all the knowledge, to refrain from walking in the murky waters hidden about. I know you who are the way, the truth and the life, will guide me away from all self deception, as I trust you above all things. I thank you in advance, for the growth that you will bring in me, prospering in self control. I make this prayer in the name of Jesus Christ, the eternal king of Israel. Amen.
