Then Simon Peter, who had a sword, drew it and struck the high priest’s servant and cut off his right ear. The servant’s name was Malchus. Therefore, Jesus said to Peter, Put the sword [back] into the sheath!
—–John 18:10-11 (Amplified Bible)
Dearest Abba, Father, many times I try to solve the problems in my life using my strength and limited means without coming to You for help. I have only a little strength and without Your help I can’t achieve anything of value. Forgive me for not seeking You at all times trusting in Your faithfulness to act on my behalf. Today I ask You to speak to my heart and tell me what I am supposed to do. Help me follow Your instructions completely. Give me the patience to wait on You while You supernaturally work behind the scenes to resolve my problems. Yahweh- Adonai, I thank You that You have the power to put an end to my problems. I confess that I am not smart enough by myself to figure out how to get out my messes.I need Your intervention in the affairs of my life. I put all my cares and burdens on You because You care for me. Release Your divine power within me to help me tackle the challenges I face so that Your Son Jesus Christ be glorified through my life. Through the grace of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen.
