Verse of the Day
And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. Ephesians 3:18 (NLT)
Our Father in heaven, I humbly come to You giving You all that I am. I choose to keep my eyes on You and allow You to work in my heart and mind. I declare that I am free from competition today. Lord, today I release every person who has criticized me or tried to discourage me. I choose to forgive them; I choose to turn away from that distraction. I choose to focus on You and the blessings You have in store for me
Help me, Lord, to know when to stand my ground and when to compromise. Help me to know when more listening is required and when it’s time for me to make a decision. Give me wisdom in those times and courage to stand for what I believe. Yet, even when I am resolute, may I be gracious and humble, clear without being confrontational. May my decisions reflect your purposes and my communication of those decisions reflect your grace. Shine Your light on, in, and through me, Lord, that I might fight against darkness wherever I go. Help me to learn from Thy Word to evaluate my speech so that every word that proceeds from my mouth will glorify Your name. Help me to control my speech so that others will see Christ in me.
Abba Father, today I have come to my senses and realize the love You have for me. I choose to live for You and surrender all that I have for Your use. You are the Lord God Almighty and I have come to realize that living for You makes all the sense in the world. Lord, please give me the power to understand how wide, how long, how high, and how deep Your love really is. Father, I want to live my life for You. Let Your Holy Spirit control my thinking. I give You my mind; guide me, direct me, lead me into Your will. We ask this in the matchless name of Jesus Christ, Amen

Prayer Quote of the day
The true spirit of prayer is no other than God’s own Spirit dwelling in the hearts of the saints. And as this spirit comes from God, so doth it naturally tend to God in holy breathings and pantings. It naturally leads to God, to converse with him by prayer.
