Dear Heavenly Father,

As I come before You in prayer today, I thank You for Your love, mercy, and faithfulness. I am grateful for the example of Jesus and his disciples as they prepared for the Passover. I ask that You would help me to follow their example of faith and obedience. I pray for those who have betrayed or may betray me or cause me harm.

I know that forgiveness is not always easy, but I ask You to please help me show love and mercy to those who have wronged me. Give me the strength to release any bitterness or anger that I may be holding onto, and help me to extend grace, just as Jesus did for Judas.

Lord, I know that I will face trials and challenges in this life. I pray that in those moments, I would turn to You for strength and guidance. Help me to trust in Your plan for my life, even when it may be difficult or unclear. May I always remember that You are with me, even to the end of the age.

I ask for Your wisdom and discernment as I navigate the ups and downs of life. May I always seek to follow Your will and Your ways. Help me to love my neighbours as myself and to be a source of light in a world that can often be dark and difficult.

Finally, I lift up any specific requests or concerns that I may have. I know that You are a God who hears my prayers, and I trust in Your unfailing love. Thank You for hearing my prayers and for being with me always.

I pray all this in the name of Your Son, Jesus Christ.
