Hey, hey! Here’s a verse that makes an ideal prayer for 2011. Perhaps I’ll tape this one to the bathroom mirror where I’ll see it every morning. “Let me hear of your unfailing love each morning, for I am trusting you. Show me where to walk, for I give myself to you” (Psalm 143:8).
Frankly, you and I don’t have a clue what the New Year holds. But in the midst of uncertainty, we can be sure of this: God’s love for us is like a gushing waterfall that never runs dry, therefore we can trust Him implicitly with every aspect of our lives. Do you believe this is true? If so, I encourage you to incorporate this prayer (or something similar, based on Psalm 143:8) into your daily routine…
“Dear Father, open my eyes and ears to see and hear evidences of Your love for me today. I invite You to be Lord over my time, talents, tongue, money, mind, and health. Direct my steps and show me where to walk. Show me with whom You want me to speak. Show me to whom You want me to listen. Accomplish Your highest purposes through me. I’m Yours.”
Making this prayer a meaningful part of our daily lives could transform our way of thinking and the impact we have on others. I’m willing and eager to experience such a change. Are you?
