Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.
--Colossians 4:2 New International Version (NIV)
O Lord, give me the desire to pray, and teach me to pray as you would have my needs. Sustain me, that I may overcome my weaknesses, and strengthen me, that I may have your approval. May I be reverent and unselfish as I come to you in prayer. Amen.
