Dear Father, judge of all mankind,

 

Help me be a profitable slave to you and good steward of your mysteries. As a steward may I be found trustworthy. May I not be concerned about being judged by human beings or by any human court. May I not even set in judgment on myself. Only you do that. I am not aware of anything against myself, but that, I understand, in and of itself, does not acquit me before you. You are my judge. You can condemn. And you can and will make me stand.It is by Jesus’ authority and in his name that I offer up this prayer. Amen.

Father, thank you for your grace. I need you to pour out that grace more and more. Please help me bear up under the weight of my trials and temptations with character and faithfulness. Please give me the courage to hang on through the tough times because I know that I will eventually share heaven with you. Thank you for your Spirit, my assurance that I am your child and that I will share in all of your blessings. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

Prayer of a Selfish Soul

Lord, I have been everything except what I should.

I have fought for my own way over yours,

And I have done nothing but fall short.

I am here for the sole purpose

Of requesting Your mercy once again.

I have chased my own dreams

And burned my own way

Through this busted world to no avail.

I have been a stubborn fool

Who only cares about what he can accomplish

And who he can impress.

Dear Father, author of all true wisdom,Thank you that you do not send your emissaries out as mere recruiters. They are not just to baptize but to preach the Good News about Jesus, that he doesn’t just want us to “join his club” but he wants us to be like him, yes, to be him, to be his body, in the world.Thank you for not appealing to us with elegant ideas or eloquent speech, lest the message of the cross be emptied of its power. For while this word of the cross is utter folly to those who are perishing, to us who are being saved by it, it is your power.Grant me the courage and strength to trust you when worldly wisdom sounds convincing.In the name of the one who empowers me to live according to his righteousness, I pray. Amen.
