"Lord, the Lord Almighty, may those who hope in you not be disgraced because of me; God of Israel, may those who seek you not be put to shame because of me. - Psalm 69:6

Dear heavenly Father, you know all my weaknesses and foibles and you covered my shame when you put your Son on the cross.  By your grace and your Holy Spirit, give me the strength to resist all temptation and to do those things that bring honor to my family and the body of believers.  I do not want to bring shame on you or your people or my people.  Help me be a reason for them to hold their head up and not down.  Give me a confident attitude of obedience and faith so I am a strength and not a drain on others.  AMEN

In the shadow of the cross is light to make one shine for the God of grace.
