Good morning Father, it is so wonderful to open our eyes and realize that we woke up to another Satisfying and Joyful Saturday. Yes, we realize that for many this is just another work day, and we ask that you would give them the Grace they need as they go about their day. Help them maintain a positive attitude with everyone they meet. If they are working in retail, let them be a blessing to their customers. If they tend to the physical needs of patients, give them the wisdom and grace, they will need. Protect those who are commissioned to protect us. Whether they are soldiers or policemen.
But we are so overwhelmed with amazement that you, who has set his throne in heaven; who rules over us all. Our King and awesome Lord! From the depths of our soul, we bless you, Father.
But this Saturday morning is new for us and we calm ourselves, take a deep breath of your presence and with a joyous heart because we thank you that you are always there for us. You strengthen us when we are weak and provide the Wisdom we need when we are confused. In fact, we are so amazed at the wondrous things you do for us and continually demonstrate such marvelous and steadfast love for us. Thank you! From this moment on we will no longer compare ourselves to anyone else or give in to the frustrations of daily life. We can say that because we know you have given us hope and a new spirit. We woke up this morning energize and full of your power and stamina!
We are ready to take on the day with the anointing your have poured into our heart. We are refreshed and renewed, completely healed and restored to perfect heath. Our minds are clear and we are free from any depression and curse any attempts of our enemy to weaken and discourage us.
We commit our day to You and ask that Your Spirit would continue to guide and direct our steps and show us how we can encourage those around us who need a brighter attitude. If any of us are weak and disheartened, then change us! Holy Spirit, we ask that you would open the eyes of our understanding so we can know You, Your will, Your ways.
We thank You for your Word that is changing the way we interact with our family and friends. Penetrate our hearts by the power of Your Holy Spirit. We will yield to Your will and ways. And nothing will dissuade from our service to you and to your people. In fact, we will meet with other brothers and sisters today to worship you. And you are so worth the praises and worship will offer.
Today, order our steps for this is the day that You have made, we will rejoice and be glad in it.
Amen! ~Nickolas Hiemstra, who is willing to go out and take on the day!
