Today’s Prayer

My Lord, help me to live in the blessed constancy of prayer. May my breath be an opportunity for giving thanks. May every encounter become a chance to intercede. Rest Your Holy Spirit upon me as I perpetually seek Your face, God. There are seasons in which I must struggle in prayer. Seasons that challenge me with distraction and emotions that drain away the fervency. But as Christ is my strength, I know You will give me what I need to persevere. Lord, do not let me give up in cultivating this habit. Troubled times are when I need to seek You more earnestly. There are also seasons of special favor when needs are met and prayers are answered so timely. Lord, may I use such times to praise and worship until my heart beats to the thrum of a new song. Whatever You say, may I be prompt to act. Whether joy or sadness draws me to Your throne, keep my heart forever grateful that I can approach the King with my heart exposed and my soul laid bare. There is no better way to come to You, Lord God. There is no greater gift than intimacy in prayer with my Savior. Under the Word of God given in 1 Corinthians 10:31 and the authority of Christ Jesus, I bow in humble prayer.

Whether therefore you eat, or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.
1 Corinthians 10:31, WEB
