Verse of the Day
For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you and asking God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all spiritual wisdom and understanding. And we pray this in order that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and may please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, and joyfully giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in the kingdom of light. Colossians 1:9-11
Dearest loving Abba Father, thank You for Your Word which lights my path and transforms my life. I choose today to turn my thoughts toward You. I choose today to meditate on Your Word and Your promises so that I can be empowered to live in the victory You have prepared for me. I come to You today releasing every part of my mind, will and emotions to You. Show me ways that I can demonstrate my faith in You. Help me to make wise decisions so I can walk in higher places with You. Thank you for casting my sins as far as the east is from the west. Help me to be an agent of reconciliation in the world
Abba Father, Lord, do not let me become spoiled and conceited. I want to share my life and to share the lives of others. Help me to know others better, and in so doing, know You better, too. I desire be to humble, gentle and patient with those that bother me. Help me focus on your love so I can make allowances for the faults of others. Help me Lord to make every effort to be united in the Spirit, binding myself with others with the bonds of peace. Give me and my family today a new attitude of cheerfulness. Help us to be cheerful to each other and also to those we meet today. Help me to manifest my cheerfulness to You by giving a portion of my time talents and treasures back to You.
Help us, Lord, to live truly in light of your glory today. May everything we do and everything we see today be transformed because of your radiant glory. Inspire me to be more open, more inclusive, and more hospitable. Where I have the opportunity and authority, may I reach out to invite others into my life, my community, and my work. May our churches welcome people from all sorts of background, not just in our slogans, but in our attitudes and actions. Through the grace of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen.

Prayer Quote of the day
I am as certain as I am standing here, that the secret of much mischief to our own souls, and to the souls of others, lies in the way that we stint, and starve, and scamp our prayers, by hurrying over them.
