Prayer For Feb. 16th

February 16, 2019

Hello Friends! Here is the prayer for today…

Dear Lord,

We are told in your Word that Jesus, our Lord and teacher, came not to be served but to serve, and we should follow in His footsteps. In this day and age where we hear so much about “my rights”, “what I need”, “what’s best for me”…in this day and age that is so focused on self, we ask that you would remind us to be people who are set apart. Help us to die to ourselves so that Jesus can be resurrected in us…help us to grow in You, so people see less of us and more of Jesus.

Jesus, in all of His divine glory, stooped down and lovingly washed His disciples feet…he did not think that was beneath Him to do an act usually reserved for servants…Jesus was kind and compassionate to those that society looked down on…there was no one beneath him…may we have that same heart and vision.

You see success so differently than the world…you see beauty so differently than the world…Jesus modeled how we should be…what we should value…what pleases you…help us not to seek to impress men…when we are serving the “least of these” in your name, you are most pleased with us…you look for humbleness in spirit…you hate a spirit of pride and entitlement…

Please forgive us for all the times we have been prideful…please forgive us for the times we have put seeking the approval of people above seeking your approval.  If Jesus, who was perfect, was unable to please everyone, we should know that we will never be able to please everyone no matter how hard we try. If Jesus was rejected, gossiped about, lied about, slandered and accused of false things, we know we will meet the same. Help us to break free from the need to please and seek approval to find our sense of self-worth and help us to find our sense of self in what you say about us…help us to live our lives in a way that pleases you alone.

You tell us that when we meditate on your Word and when we are careful to do everything that is written in it, then we will be prosperous and successful…help us to make pleasing you and serving you our number one priority. Help us to have the humble heart of a servant. Help us to work as unto you…help us to daily humble ourselves before you. Help us to focus on doing things that have eternal value. We ask these things in Jesus’ name. Amen

Blessings be upon you!

In His love,

Debbie
