Hebrews 12:12-15

Dear Father,

When my hands droop and my knees are weak, put me in a place where I will get exercise. Open my eyes so that I can find level paths on which to lead the lame so they will not trip and get hurt but will walk and find healing.

May I always strive for peace with every other person in the world and to seek holiness for myself, knowing that without it I will never see you.

Enable me to help others find grace and to keep those in your family from becoming bitter, which causes trouble and leads to defilement.

In the name of your Son I ask. Amen.
