There is no God like you
Lord, it may seem unusual for people to see a leader kneeling to someone else in front of those they are leading because by kneeling I am submitting to you, a higher authority.
I do this to demonstrate my great love and respect for you, my God.
I acknowledge you God as the ultimate in rule and in authority and I encourage everyone today to do the same.
My arms are extended to you, just like the cedars of Lebanon, and I pray this prayer only to you.
There is no God like you in all of heaven and earth. You are the God who keeps His kind promises to all those who follow you and who are anxious to do Your will.
Your kept promises are evident throughout my life and I expect that you will carry out your further promises to my children and their children.
How it is possible that you can live with me each day and occupy me – and then to listen to my prayers and answer them!
Look at me with favour, both day and night, hear me when I pray for forgiveness and forgive. If I cannot hear you, guide me through others or through circumstances that will enable me stay in the centre of your way and your call on my life.
I count on you to step in when I confront my enemies. Give me strength to love and teach me the meaning of love and the boundaries that are healthy for me.
Your presence gives me strength to be the leader you have called me to be. Never ignore me, never turn your face away from me, anoint me each day, love me, be kind to me.
I bless you Lord with all of my heart, soul, mind and strength.
