Today’s Prayer

I fall before You, my God, keeper of my heart. In the season of plenty, let my soul not become estranged from You, Jesus. When You have blessed me with rest from the onslaught so that I am in a season of satisfied quietness, let me not become content to do without heaven. Lord, You know my own weakness toward selfish inclination. You know my tendency toward a prideful stance that forgets Your nearness, that becomes deaf to Your voice of guidance. I have much to learn, my Lord and Teacher. My flesh desires fullness so that I may no longer depend upon You, but my soul craves fullness so that I can honor and bring glory to Your Name. Lead me, Jesus, in the latter when You have called me to a lush valley of blessing and abundance. May I not become blinded to prosperity’s battleground even after crossing the battlefield of adversity. For no matter where I am, only You can lead me to victory. Under the Word given in Philippians 4:12-13 and the authority of Christ, I humbly pray.

 I know how to live on almost nothing or with everything.
I have learned the secret of contentment in every situation,
whether it be a full stomach or hunger, plenty or want;
for I can do everything God asks me to
with the help of Christ who gives me the strength and power.
Philippians 4:12-13, TLB
