Prayer, Plain and Simple

“Because of the Lord’s great love, we are not consumed. For His compassions never fail. They are new every morning. Great is your faithfulness!” Lamentations 3:22-23

Life’s struggles can consume us when we focus on them. The challenges we face are real as is the suffering that often accompanies them, but we have a choice to turn our thoughts away from the problems that overwhelm us, toward the love of God. His love never fails. His acts of compassion in our lives can rejuvenate our joy every morning when we awake. His faithfulness knows no bounds.

Father,

I choose to be consumed by You today, not the challenges that I’m facing. I choose to fix my thoughts on You and on what is true and lovely and worthy of praise. You are all those things, and your compassion is working in my life today, bringing about miracles that my worrying and fretting can never accomplish. I will be full of faith today, believing that you are faithful to me in every area of my life as your Word says you are. I will praise you today in advance for delivering me from being overwhelmed by trouble, grief, sorrow, regret, loneliness, despair, defeat, or anything the devil tries to throw at me.

In Jesus’ Name Amen

“Do everything he tells you.” ~Moses in Deuteronomy 26:17

“Do whatever he tells you.” ~Mary, Mother of Jesus in John 2:5

Mark has often said, “Don’t study the Bible. Let the Bible study you.”

Whatever the Lord has outlined in Scripture to do with our lives, we are blessed if we do them. God has given us a choice as to whether or not we follow them. It’s completely up to us. But, there is a blessing guaranteed if we study what pleases Him and follow those principles. It’s all about love, and there is no law in this universe that can quarrel with that.

Father,

I have often taken your Word as merely an excellent suggestion. Sometimes I’ve studied it and gone away thinking about how someone I know needs to implement a principle I learned, and I’ve neglected to let the Word study me! I ask your forgiveness, and with Your help, I’m ready to do whatever you tell me to do without wavering, questioning, negotiating, or delaying.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
