Prayer just for today!

16 But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed. Luke 5:16

Heavenly Father, I thank You for this day. I thank You for me being able to be awake again, to see and hear the morning. I am blessed because You are a forgiving Father and an understanding one at that. You have done marvellous things for me and my loved ones yet You still continue to bless me with so much more. Please forgive me every day for some things I may have done, said or thought that may not have pleased You and I ask You now for your forgiveness. Please keep me and my loved ones from all danger and harm. Help me start this day with a new, pleasant attitude with plenty of gratitude. Let me make the best of each and every day to clear my mind so I can hear Your loving voice. Please broaden my mind that I can accept all things without judgement. Let me not whine or complain over things I have no control over. And when the world closes in on me, let me remember the example of Jesus, to slip away and find a quiet place to pray. Continue to use me to do Your Will. In Jesus Name, Amen.

Move far away from the shallow

Heavenly Father, today we want to thank You for new beginnings. Your mercies are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness to us even when we are not always faithful to You. Sometimes we walk away from You deliberately, through sin, in our lives. But many times, the distance between You and us is a slow fade, where we gradually spend less and less time with You and we can feel the difference. 

When we spend quality time with You every day, the same way Your Son did, we sense Your presence in our lives and Your love, joy and peace. As we get busy and don’t intentionally take time to be with You, we can feel a darkness settle over us. It may come in the form of worry, anxiety, self-pity, a complaining spirit or even sin. 

Abba Father, forgive us for the times we have ignored You. You are walking with us each day and yet many times we do not acknowledge Your presence. Empower us to change through Your Holy Spirit so that we can offer You the best part of our day, every day. Show us how important our time with You is each day and allow us to make You a priority in our lives, like we never have before.

Jesus, You knew how important time with Your Father was and often withdrew to a place so that You could be alone with Him. Many times this was early in the morning. Give us the willingness to make sacrifices to spend time with You, even if it means sacrificing sleep or giving up watching our favourite TV show or time on the internet.

We love You, Lord, and thank You for this fresh start today where we can make our relationship with You the biggest priority in our lives. In Jesus Name, Amen.
