open my eyes Lord that I might recognize, accept and learn to draw upon the power you have invested within me.  Make me unashamed to speak up for myself and to fight for those things I believe are right. Help me not to wilt in the face of adversity and challenges. Help me to trust those who want to see me succeed. Grant me wisdom that I might understand those who are not on my side. Endow me with wisdom. Bless me with power. Shower me with victory in your name. Through Jesus Christ our Lord and savior I pray. Amen
