Prayer For February 11th

February 11, 2015

Jesus

Hello, Friends! Here is the prayer for today…

Dear Lord,

We thank you  for Jesus…we thank you for all He endured…the many ways He humbled Himself…for His great sacrifices…for His incredible love for us…with Valentine’s Day coming up, the subject of love comes up often…but there is no greater love that we could ever know…no greater example to try to emulate, than what you have shown us.The Word says you are love…you embody love…your perfect love casts out fear…your love is patient…kind…sees beyond our faults…hopes for the best…believes the best…gives unconditionally…oh, Lord, how blessed we are to be loved by you…

Help us daily to become more like Christ…may people see Jesus in us…may they see that we spend time with Him and that we are changed by knowing Him… may others see Jesus in our demeanor… by the way we love…may we speak kindly and think kindly towards others. May we be slow to anger and quick to forgive…may we be full of compassion and understanding…may we be as patient with others as you are with us…may we see the good in others and not be quick to judge or condemn…may we be full of mercy and  may our words edify and not tear down…  may our words be full of your wisdom… May your light shine forth from our lives in such a way that people are drawn to you.

Lord, we come to seek your face…we don’t want to come to you just because we are hurting…just because we want our pain to go away… or just because we need something…we want to hunger and thirst for your righteousness and to be in your presence…to be filled with your peace and joy on a daily basis so that our cups spill over onto those around us… we want to rest at your feet…to die to ourselves, that Christ might be resurrected within us…Lord, take all of us…take all the broken pieces and make something beautiful from our lives… from our messes… from our brokenness… make something that reflects the beauty of Christ in us. May we grow so much in our faith and in our relationship with you, that we will see adversity as an opportunity to experience you in ways we’ve never known before, may we look for the blessings in the brokenness…you are never closer than when our hearts are breaking…you long to be our healer, our closest confidante and  most trusted companion.  Help us to fall more in love with you with each passing day.

Lord, take all of us, that we may be filled up with more of you. Clean out our wounds, purge us of anything that hinders our walks… remove anything that holds us back from being healed and whole and all you want us to be. Help us to keep our eye on the prize…help us to rise up with renewed purpose, new strength, new conviction, new hope. May we look forward to the joy that is coming that will permanently chase away all the sorrow and tears. Help us to live with an eternal perspective and look forward to all that lies ahead.Help us to live with a sense of urgency and expectancy as we wait on you. Thank you Lord for your goodness, grace and mercy and for loving us so well. In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen

May His love fill your heart to overflowing today!

Much love in Him,
Debbie
