Prayer, Plain and Simple

Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me
    all the days of my life.  (Psalm 23:8)

What follows us is determined by the leadership we follow. If we follow Jesus, our Good Shepherd, we can expect goodness and unfailing love to catch up with us eventually.

Paul tells us in Romans that our mouths determine the quality of life that stalks us. If our mouths are, “Foul…filled with lies…full of cursing and bitterness” then, “Destruction and misery always follow…” (Romans 3:16)

Look behind you. What do you see? If it’s not good and merciful, then make Jesus your Good Shepherd of your life. He will teach you how to create a life that yields good fruit, how to speak words that bring about blessing in your life and not disaster.

Father,

I yield to the Lordship of Jesus in my life. I make Him my leader and Lord. Create in me a clean heart and renew a right spirit within me. Align my heart, desires, and words with His, I pray.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen
