We are easily disappointed Father.
We make our plans and work towards our goals and just when we think we are on the right track, things are going well, something happens that we had not counted on that interferes or threatens or makes more costly our progress. We may achieve success but it did not come without hardship of some sort, hardship that disrupted the smooth flow of things we had anticipated, hardship that for a time at least, can alter our attitudes and thoughts in a negative way.
Father, as we continue in this week and all the days of our lives, create in us hearts that can be at peace in all circumstances. Though living in this world can be hard, Father, though we may experience setbacks in our work or in achieving goals we have set for physical things, for relationships, in all things, may we confront all things in union with You.
Give us grace enabling us to deal with all situations in a way that is pleasing to You, which brings glory to You and Your favor on us.
As we walk through the situations of life, with You, may our joy and satisfaction in pleasing You far outweigh and offset the effects of difficulties we encounter.
We want our joy to be in being Your children forever.
Thank You Abba.
In Yeshua’s name we pray,
