Verse of the Day
“Come close to God, and God will come close to you.” James 4:8 (NLT)
Dearest Abba Yahweh, today I choose wisdom by choosing to honor You. I put You first in my heart, my mind, my emotions and my actions. Show me Your ways that I may walk with You and acknowledge You in everything I do. Lord, today I set my focus on You. I choose to forget the past by forgiving others so that I can look straight ahead to Your promises. I ask that You direct my heart on the path of life that You have for me.
My Father, I pray that if I meet with difficulty, I may not go backward, nor stand still, and fear to go forward. Unfold to me the depth and breadth of the ideal and beautiful, that I may not be content to succeed in the shallowness of life: but may I aspire to the height of the soul, even if I fail to acquire great things. Lord. may I serve you in all I do. May I seek to honor you by what I do and how I do it. May my relationships reflect your grace and truth. If, along the way, my name is well regarded and recognized, may I receive this as a gift from you, something to be received with gratitude and stewarded with wisdom.
Father, thank You for Your goodness and faithfulness in my life. I have been transformed by a love far beyond my understanding. Thank You, Lord, for taking my life and making it something holy and special. Make my life a glory to Your name. I choose to cast my cares on You. I choose to trust even when I don’t understand. I choose to believe that You have a good plan and will bring me to a flourishing finish . To you be all the glory, Lord! Through the grace of Jesus Christ, the High Priest, who is interceding for me before you, I pray. Amen

Prayer Quote of the day
I think Christians fail so often to get answers to their prayers because they do not wait long enough on God. They just drop down and say a few words, and then jump up and forget it and expect God to answer them. Such praying always reminds me of the small boy ringing his neighbor’s door-bell, and then running away as fast as he can go.
