- God puts it all together: “And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them” (Rom. 8:28 NLT). In times of trouble and triumph it will always work out. In prayer ask for how the Holy Spirit sees it.
- God puts us together: “I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb. Before you were born I set you apart and appointed you as my prophet to the nations.” (Jer. 1:5 NLT). We are known better than we know ourselves. In prayer always ask and listen for how the Holy Spirit sees you.
- God enjoys us as He works on us: "For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago" (Eph 2:10 NLT). We are created to bring joy to God. In prayer ask how to put a smile on the face of Christ.
- God desires sacrifice as He leads us: "May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God" (Eph 3:19 NLT). Living full is giving our all to the Lord’s will. In prayer ask for what we can give rather than what we get.
Lord you are in charge and make it all happen, may I see my life the way you see it. When success is experienced teach me to humbly accept it, and when failure collides with my pride, show me the silver lining. I desire for you to make me the man that brings joy to the Father in heaven and a smile to Jesus’ face. Continue to work on me God. I give you my all. Every part of me. Lead me as I lead my family. Show me how to love my wife deep, and raise my kids in strength. Bless HOPE today. May we as a community bring the HOPE of the gospel everywhere we go. Even when I am talking to myself I know you are listening.
