Lord, I choose to see your hand at work in my life today. Help me to see you more. Amen
Lord, please constantly remind me of yourself today. As I feel the sun on my back remind me of the warmth with which you have welcomed me into your family. As I feel the wind on my cheek remind me of the gift of your Holy Spirit to guide and comfort me. As I feel the rain on my face remind me of your constant refreshing that I receive each day. As I feel the cold of night please let it be a chilling reminder of the sacrifice you made for me on the cross. Help me to walk with you and, and Lord, be never far from my mind this day and always. Amen.
Lord, I thank you that you know me better than I know myself. You know what I struggle with and what is on my mind. I thank you that you understand even when I am doubting you. Lord, help me to give all my struggles to you each day, help me to talk to you about them and seek your wisdom for the answers. Amen.
Whether I cross the seas or climb to the highest height you are there O Lord. Whether I go to prison or am stuck at home you are with me, right by my side. Thank you that you go before me to prepare the way and stay with me to help me through. Thank you that you never leave me.
Sometimes you will find that you just don’t have the words to say when you pray. It is in those times that God easily interprets our cries, our screams, our sighs, our tears, our squeals of frustration and even our silence. Turn your focus to God because He always hears you.
Lord, show me what you are wanting to do today and grant me the privilege of being involved. Use me as you desire and grow my faith through the experience. Amen.
Today I choose to trust God for He has always been faithful and I have no reason to believe that that will change. His promises never fail even when I do. Today I choose to put my focus on God knowing that He will guide my feet, keep me safe and give me all I need. Help me Lord to refocus on you throughout today. Amen
May the very power that raised Jesus Christ from the dead be at work in your life today, may it flow through you to others and may you trust it to work miracles in the lives of those you meet. Amen
May the very God who spoke to Moses through a burning bush, who guided the Israelites with a pillar of fire, who burnt up Elijah’s offering and who sent His Holy Spirit as fire at Pentecost, set your heart ablaze with love for Him and those around you, purify your lives by His refining fire, give you a burning desire for the things on His heart and protect you from the fiery arrows of the evil one – this day and for ever more.
How do I pray? Pray as if Jesus just turned up on your doorstep!! Pray as you would talk to him if you had just met him face to face! We tend to pray as if He was a big agony aunt in the sky, there to solve all our problems, hear our worries and give us what we need. However, I would hope if Jesus turned up on my doorstep I would start with praising Him, continue in thanking Him, then I would want to spend time listening to what He wanted to say to me and then just as He were walking out the door, if I were brave enough, I might just ask him for something.
