Father, I began this Lenten Season as a journey to know You better. Some days I stayed the course, other days I strayed away allowing other things to distract me from my journey. No matter what, I learned that getting and maintaining a relationship with You through Jesus Christ is a lifelong journey. I will mess up along the way, but if I stay the course, I’m still on the right path.

Along the way to finding out more about You, I found out more about me. As much as I love you, I still fall short but You knew I wasn’t going to be perfect, that’s why You sent Your Son to be my ransom; to take all my sins and carry them to the cross.

As much as I want to do everything You want me to do, my faith is lacking in so many areas. That’s why You sent Jesus, as a man, to show me the importance of prayer and obedience. In His humanity Jesus didn’t want to go to the cross, but out of obedience to You, He went anyway.

I want to be bold and courageous in the things You have purposed for me to do but I allow the things of my past to interfere with my future. That’s why You sent Your Son to be the anointment for Your forgiveness for me, one time for all time. Now, I need to forgive myself the way You forgive me.

On this Good Friday I look at the cross that Jesus died on a little differently. It wasn’t something He did for everyone; it is something He did just for me. Thank you Jesus for dying in my place and becoming sin for me so I can have everlasting life through You. I pray in Jesus name. Amen.

Prayer for Today

February 4, 2015

Heavenly Father, today I will speak your word over my life. I will not allow my internal nor external enemies to cause my words to be anything except gracious, kind, filled with love and compassionate. This may mean that my words are few today but, if that’s what it takes to exhibit your character to others, so be it.

According to your word, the tongue has the power of life and death. I choose to live a good life therefore I will speak well of my life. I will choose my words wisely and I say what I want, verses what I don’t want, to manifest in my life.

I know my words have power so I will guard my words by your grace. Lord, I will purpose not to allow my enemies to triumph over me in this area today. Help me to measure my words and think before I speak. In Jesus name I pray. Amen!
