Praying from 2 Timothy 2:5 relating to Obedience, Discipline, Reward.

Dear Lord,

As I strive to compete in the race of life, I pray that I may always remember to follow your rules and guidelines. Help me to resist the temptation to take shortcuts or cheat my way to success. Instead, may I always strive to do my best and compete with integrity.

I pray that you would crown me with your blessings and favor as I run this race. May my efforts be pleasing to you and bring glory to your name.

Thank you for your guidance and strength as I navigate the challenges of this life. May I always look to you for wisdom and direction.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.
