An amazing prayer I found

Found this prayer on the Charisma website, in their devotions.  Talks about anchoring our soul in God each day, allowing God to be in charge of our emotions, our peace, our hope.  That's something I struggle with daily, with cancer in the shadows, and a mind that just wants to freeze sometimes.  Learning to deal with the emotions and cancer in life without being paralyzed with fear, anxiety, anger and sadness.  I'm just so afraid that if I acknowledge any of these emotions, that I will not be able to function, that I will not be able to face the day.  Where's the balance of allowing the emotion and still being able to make it through the day? Learning to count the blessings continuously!    Lifting Up Your Soul    By Linda Sommer Father, I lift up my mind to You today. I bind my mind to the mind of Christ. Help me to take every thought captive to today and keep my mind from wandering. Help me to focus on You today. I ask You to give me wisdom, understanding and knowledge today as I read and hear Your Word. I ask You to give me divine imaginations and help me to refuse vain imaginations. Father, I lift up my emotions to You today. Help my emotions to be anchored in hope. Your Son Jesus Christ is my hope. Christ in me is my hope of glory. I dress myself in the garment of praise today so that all heaviness in my emotions has to flee. I receive the joy of the Lord, which is my strength. I receive the peace that only You can give, peace that passes my understanding. I will seek peace and pursue it today. Thank You for causing my emotions to be stable today. Father, I lift up my will today to You. I bind my will to the way You want me to walk. I commit my way to You so that You can bring Your will to pass in my life. I thank You that You work within me today, both to will and to do of Your good pleasure. Cause my will to always operate in Your love just as Jesus' will was controlled completely by You because He loved You. Let my words and deeds today reflect Your love.
