This week I’ll be taking some time off, so I’m posting some old prayers from my Mail Chimp Days. Hope you won’t mind?
New International Version (NIV)
2 Has not my hand made all these things,
and so they came into being?”
declares the Lord.
“These are the ones I look on with favor:
those who are humble and contrite in spirit,
and who tremble at my word.
We dream about being rich or being a movie star or a world class athlete. To possess a talent or beauty or skill that sets us apart from the everyday and makes us special. But what if you had a genie in a bottle and one wish only… What special thing would you ask for to set yourself apart from all the rest?
I would hope that I would not waste my one chance at reaching the top. That I would go for a serious wish…God’s Favor. Yes, it’s better by far than talent. There’s not enough money in all of creation to match it. It might be the single most precious thing you could ask for. To have not only God’s blessing, but to have Him actively pursuing your prospering in everything You do. Wow!
Please look down on us and pour out on us, Your Favor. Empower us with what we need to succeed. Turn the hearts of those that can assist us to do so. Make us pleasing to all that come in contact with us. May Your Presence go before us and follow us in all that we endeavor to do. But most of all Lord, may we be pleasing to You for the sake of our relationship and to bring Glory to Your name.
Thank You, Jesus so very, very much.
