Prayer, Plain and Simple

For I know the thoughts and plans that I have for you, says the Lord, thoughts and plans for welfare and peace and not for evil, to give you hope in your final outcome. Jeremiah 29:11 (Amplified)

Roll your works upon the Lord, commit and trust them wholly to Him; He will cause your thoughts to become agreeable to His will, and so shall your plans be established and succeed. Proverbs 16:3 (Amplified)

What are your plans today? If they are in line with God’s plans for you, then as you commit them to him, they will be fruitful and successful. Let’s pray to that end:

Our Father,

You know what is on my list and my heart today. I submit these priorities into Your hands, and I ask that you be my Leader, my CEO, the organizer and my benevolent Controller where the details and priorities and responsibilities of my life are concerned. You have given me gifts to steward:  time, talents, and resources. Teach me how to appreciate these gifts and to use them to the best of my ability to bring about the  objectives that you want me to fulfill this day. I thank you in advance for working alongside me and for fulfilling your promise to lead me and to bless the work of my hands. I desire to keep close to your presence all day and to continually talk with you and hear what your Spirit is saying to me.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
