Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.
Pro 3:5-6 NIV

It is not always easy to be honest, especially to be honest with yourself. So often we are blind to our own shortcomings. If I am honest, as I read “in all your ways submit to him”, I must admit that there are areas in my life that I need to submit to Him. There are times that I act in my own strength and not in His. Can I encourage you to be honest, or even better, can I encourage you to allow the Holy Spirit to search your heart and guide you in submitting these areas He points out, to God.


  • Holy Spirit search my heart, please show me the areas in my life that is not fully submitted to You.
  • Holy Spirit You are the Spirit of Truth, please guide me into all truth in the specific areas You are highlighting in my life.
  • Father I confess that in certain areas of my life I have not been submitting to You, forgive me for trying to do it in my own understanding and strength.
  • Father I trust you with the paths in my life that are not straight.
  • Father thank You for Your faithfulness, I rejoice and give thanks for the victories You are about to bring.


  • Father we pray that You would deepen the submission of the church to You.
  • Father bring an increase in fruitfulness to the church as we respond to Your leading.


Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
Jas 4:7 NIV

  • Father from a place a submission to You we resist the attack of the enemy on our nation.
  • Father give us grace to not react in fear and anger to all we see and hear around us.
  • Father we pray that all violent protests would be brought to an end.
  • Father we pray for Your hand over the hearts and minds of our leaders, we pray that Your righteousness would be established in our nation.
