Prayer, Plain and Simple

“The Father loves his Son and has put everything into his hands.” John 3:35

As the Father entrusted Jesus with everything, we are called to put all that we are and all that we have into His hands as well. That requires a great deal of trust and the heart to believe. The term “believe” is the greek word pisteuo which means to be fully invested in Jesus.

Do you believe in Jesus enough to actually invest yourself, your belongings, and all that you have in Him? God does. God is a smart investor. Make Him your advisor, and put your money where your mouth is. Invest everything you have in Jesus. Perhaps you feel like you don’t have much. Look what He can do with a couple of loaves and fish! A small boy give him his lunch and he fed thousands. And He will take whatever you give him and make something amazing. He is doing that for two broken bloggers… He will do it for you, too! We invite you to pray with us…

Jesus,

I believe in you. I am putting my belief into action by placing all that I have and all that I am into your loving, strong, capable, faithful, competent, unfailing hands. I give you all that I hold dear.

I give you my family. It is written,

“No weapon turned against you will succeed.” (Isaiah 54:17)

I trust in you to care for each one of my family, to lead each one, to protect each one, to teach each one, and to draw each one to yourself.

I give you my future. It is written,

“For I know the plans I have for you. Plans to prosper you and not to harm you. Plans to give you a hope and a future.” (Jeremiah 29:11)

I trust you to lead me day by day into the destiny you have ordained for me before I was even born. Thank you that the path you are leading me on is one that will give me joy, for nothing gives me greater joy than the life you offer.

I give you my finances. It is written,

“And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:19)

I place all my resources into your hands. Be my counselor, advisor, and provider.

I give you my fears. It is written,

“Even when I walk through the darkest valley, I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me.” (Psalm 23:4)

I trust you to deliver me from the things that cause me to lose my footing. I take hold of the faith I have, and I will grow in faith by listening to your Word and obeying it.

I give you my home, my work, my health, my relationships, my hopes and my disappointments. All that I am I place in the hands that reached out to the ends of the earth to draw all people to your heart of perfect love. I leave all these things in your safe-keeping and await your instruction. I will do as you say, for I have made you the Lord of my life. Thank God I am not my own anymore!

In Your Name, Amen.
