Day Three - 40 Day Prayer Pledge
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:5-8
God will never force me to follow Him. He leaves me free to choose His friendship in every moment by trusting in His goodness and obeying His commandments. How much do I trust in Him?” How do I show Him that I trust Him? How can I trust Him more? Read the passage again, slowly; as you do, let the desire to follow him grow in your heart; let God’s Word inspire you.
(Make the Sign of the Cross)
you have given me the immense power of freedom.
With this gift I can do good, or I can do evil.
I want to do good, because that is why you made me.
I want to do the most good possible, because you deserve it.
I want to live as you would have me live,
because you are the Way, the Truth and the Life.
You know my weakness better than I do,
so I ask for your strength and guidance to help me make the right decisions,
today and every day. Amen.
