Prayer, Plain and Simple

You saw me before I was born.
    Every day of my life was recorded in your book.
Every moment was laid out
    before a single day had passed. (Psalm 139:16)

God scheduled every day of your life before you were born. What’s on your calendar today? Check God’s Word, and make sure your to-do list aligns with His. Here’s a start of a few things we will make every effort to get to today:

1. Love God – worship and sing praises to Him.

2. Seek His Kingdom before anything else.

3. Help others; look for opportunities to serve.

4. Forgive everyone who has hurt or offended you.

5. Whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord.

My  Father,

You have ordained each day for me on this earth. Help me to fulfill the plans you have created for me before I was even born. I want to live out the destiny you have determined for me. I want Your way, not my way. I give myself to you and say, “Take my life, my time, my days –this day – and do something with it.” 

Amen.
