I started our 20 days of Prayer Guide today and I wanted to share my prayer from my journal with you. I am running this race with you and I am so excited to see all that God has in store for His church! Lock and Load!
I pray that my motives for ministry would always come from my heart having been touched and changed by you. Jesus, give me your heart for people. Let me see them the way you see them. Holy Spirit, open my eyes to see the greatest reality, the reality of your presence with us. Reveal anything that hinders me from pursuing you and give me the strength to remove it from my life. I want to have more of you in my life. I want my life to be an extension of my relationship with you. Do something great in me so that you can do something great through me that will be for your glory.
Jesus, I ask that you would send your Spirit to unite our church, your Church, as one body moving in our direction. I pray that we will lay aside our agendas and our plans so that we can be about your plans and your business. Let us see that the best story for our lives is the story that you want to write with our lives. Where we struggle with selfishness let it be replaced with self-sacrifice. Where there is pride let it be replaced by humble hearts that are in awe of your grace! Where there is bitterness let it be replaced with forgiveness as we think about the forgiveness you’ve given us. Where there is apathy let it be replaced by hearts that burn for you and your Good News for the world!
We need more of you, Jesus! Less of us and more of you. Bring revival and let it start in my heart!
Heart and Soul!
