This Week's Prayers
Monday, April 21, 2014
(Meditation: Matthew 11:28-30)
Dear Lord, You spoke words to me, with outstretched hands, "Come unto me." I heard Your words and I believed. I came to know the joy of life in You. In spite of my stumbling, my doubts, and my fears, I can still hear Your words, "Come unto me." Today, that is my prayer - come unto me, Lord Jesus. Come into my heart. Reign, unchallenged, on the throne of my heart. Rule. Guide. "Come in today, come in to stay. Come into my heart, Lord Jesus."

(Meditation: John 3:16)
God, I'm reluctant to tell others about what You have done in my life. I don't want to be called a "Jesus-freak" or a "fanatic." But I know that when love goes unexpressed, it dies. God, help me to share Your love and the good news of the gospel. Make me a sower of the seed of life-in-You. Through Jesus Christ, my Lord. Amen.

(Meditation: Philippians 4:6-7)
Dear God, I lose perspective when my faith in You is not as real as my problems. Help me to see beyond my worry, to let go, and to trust in You. Through Jesus Christ, my Lord. Amen.

(Meditation: Matthew 10: 30-31)
God, when the mail comes, I throw away the bulk of it. It's junk mail. It seems like everybody is trying to sell me something. But how wonderful it is to get a personal letter. It stands out. I recognize the handwriting. I recognize the return address. I know it comes from someone who knows me and cares about me. God, are my prayers more like junk mail than personal letters? Do I take time to be with You alone because You are important to me, or do I just try to sell You on something I want? Forgive my charades, and lead me into a deep and trusting relationship with You. Through Jesus Christ, my Lord. Amen.

(Meditation: Jeremiah 29:11)
Dear God and Father of mankind, lead me where You will, just go with me. Place any care upon me, just help me to bear it. Give me any task; just give me the strength to do it. Take from me what You will, just keep me close to You. Fill my days with whatever You will, just give me a heart of thanksgiving. Do with my health as You will, just give me an accepting heart. Do with my property as You will, just make me a good steward in every circumstance. I yield myself to You and Your will for my life. Through Jesus Christ, my Lord. Amen.
