When things are going well … When things are going badly …

Judges 1:1-2:5

When things are going well, help us, Lord, to thank You. When things are going badly, help us to trust You.

Judges 2:6-3:11

Sometimes, Lord, You say to us, “This is the way, walk in it” (Isaiah 30:21). Sometimes, You say to us, “This is not the way. Do not walk in it.” Help us, Lord, to walk in Your way –  and not in the way of the world.

Judges 4:1-5:11

Lord, may there be less trying to get our own way – and more walking in Your way.

Judges 6:11-7:14

We are weak. You are strong. Teach us, Lord, to look beyond our weakness to Your strength.

Judges 7:15-8:35

We find it so easy, Lord, to forget You and all that You have done for us. We feel the pull of the world – drawing us back to what we were before we met You, drawing us away from all that You are calling us to become. Give us grace, Lord, to remember You, to rejoice in You, and to be renewed by You.
