Dear Heavenly Father,
Please hear and grant my prayers for the swift and just resolution in court of a divisive family matter. Please do not let the misbehavior of one person ruin the situation for many or bad behavior be rewarded. Please help me not to have anger in my heart and let my actions always be a reflection of your great love and mercy.
Please let me continue to fairly oversee what my dear earthly father left for me to do when he died. I look not for my own profit but for the well being of everyone involved. Let me be the caretaker in the way that You care for your peoples. I humbly ask of this favor and look to the guidance of the Holy Spirit to keep me in line with your Divine Will.
Thank you for all the many blessings You bestow on me everyday and for the grace to maintain a positive attitude during difficult times. I ask this in the name of Our Lord Jesus Christ who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God forever and ever, Amen.
Need to know the truth about yourself and your situation? Praying for the truth can help you gain the insight you need. Here are some promises to claim and some historical prayers for truth:
From the Jesus:
You tell us that “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. (John 14:6 NIV)
Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” (John 8:32 NIV)
A prayer for Truth from St. Bernard of Clairvaux
High and Holy God, give me this day a word of truth to silence the lies that would devour my soul and kind encourgements to strengthen me when I fall.
Gracious One, I come quietly to your door needing to receive from your hands the nourishment that gives life.
Amen and Amen. St. Bernard of Clairvaux
