My Father and my God, the Great Shepherd of Your sheep. I, mentally, spiritually and vocally, lift You up this morning, giving all glory, honour and praise. As I start my day, I request forgiveness of all sins of thoughts, words and deeds, both known and unknown; which only You can provide.
Today, I thank You for sending Your Son Jesus Christ to be the Great Shepherd. I am grateful that, through Him, I am counted as one of Your sheep. I have been through tests, troubles and trials and have much more ahead but, through it all, I look to You to guide me by every still water and restore my soul. I look to be led, fed and set on the straight and narrow path, as I feel myself being blinded by the events and things of the world. I thank You for Your gift of eternal life, which would never have been an option, if He had not suffered and died for me. You have a firm grip, so I will never be snatched from Your hands. You came so that I may have and enjoy life in abundance; meaning to an overflow, so I shall not lack. Help me as I try to cultivate every blessing You have placed within me, so that I can bring a harvest, in due time, for You. I will not be mentally, physically or spiritually bound by anything that is not of You. I will reach out and step into the next phase of my life, with no holds barred. You are able to do exceedingly and abundantly more than I could ever ask! Good health is mine. Guidance is mine. Happiness is mine. Joy is mine. Peace is mine. Prosperity is mine. Protection is mine. A sin free life is mine, as I remain forgiven and covered by the Blood that never loses its power. Whatsoever I need, is mine. No good thing will You withhold from me! There is no need for me to worry or have any fear because You are the ultimate Shield and Protector. I have not physically seen You, but yet, I believe. Help me to stay focused on High.

For by these He has bestowed on us His precious and magnificent promises [of inexpressible value], so that by them you may escape from the immoral freedom that is in the world because of disreputable desire, and become sharers of the divine nature.2 Peter 1:4 (AMP)
20 Now may the God of peace [Who is the Author and the Giver of peace], Who brought again from among the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, by the blood [that sealed, ratified] the everlasting agreement (covenant, testament),
21 Strengthen (complete, perfect) and make you what you ought to be and equip you with everything good that you may carry out His will; [while He Himself] works in you and accomplishes that which is pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ (the Messiah); to Whom be the glory forever and ever (to the ages of the ages).
Amen (So be it)Hebrews 13:20-21 (AMPC)
