The King is enthralled by your beauty

Dear God

I adore you, I’m consumed by you, you are the only thing worth living for, everything in the universe revolves around you, you hold it together, you made everything beautiful. You are holy and worthy of all praise Jesus.

Sorry Lord for lying, for being disrespectful, for trying to lead others into temptation, for being selfish, self centred and lazy. And behaving like the only thing that matters is what I think is best, what I do, say, think, who I’m with, where I go.

Please forgive me Lord for the things I should have done but didn’t – like washing up, writing reports in better time, housework and witnessing.

Thank you heavenly Father for my job, my boyfriend, family, car, health, food, church, friends, bible and work mates. Thank you especially for forgiveness, love, mercy, hope, joy and the Holy Spirit’s comfort and guidance.

Please God help me, do you want me to be in a relationship with your son ….? Would we make a good married couple? Good parents? Best friends? Could we honour you, respect each other and serve you and our community together? Can we encourage eachother to grow in faith closer to you, rather than having lives that just revolve around each other? Can both of us keep you number one in our lives? Please Lord though help me not to be so caught up in analysing the relationship. We haven’t kissed yet and that seems to be the main thing on my mind lately. Sorry! I need to wise up!

Please Lord I pray for my three best friends who don’t know you. May they hear you clearly knocking on the door of their hearts, may they open to you and also may I openly shine the light of Jesus before them. Give me boldness, open my eyes to see you and may I be willing to risk everything for what is important in eternity. Give me boldness to serve you without hesitation.

You are good! Mould me to be more and more like Jesus.

Bless my boyfriend and help us to keep taking this slowly. We’re still getting to know each other and I pray that we don’t get too emotionally attaches to each other too soon, there is no rush. You know I long for intimacy but that will come at the right time, may I be patient and more than anything else I want to desire an intimate relationship with you and be a true friend to the really needy.

In Jesus’ name

Amen.

Endless love

Dear God,

I just want to spend some time with you this morning, before clearing up everything from yesterday, before showering and getting ready for another day with the extended family, and before going back to work tomorrow. I do love my job though!

Thank you so much for—
1/ Warm snuggly pyjamas,
2/ A family who love me,
3/ Good health,
4/ Pretty clothes and jewellery,
5/ The ability and ready access to read your word
6/ Tasty and nutritious food
7/ Forgiveness, grace and mercy
8/ A great job
9/ Caring friends
10/ and last but definitely not least – your endless love

Please God show me what you want me to know today, help me to obey you. Lord you are my best friend, closer than a brother. You know everything about me. You know my name, you made me. You picked my physical features, my personality traits and gave me a soul. Lord help me to be a blessing to EVERYONE I meet and help me to make a difference in your name Jesus for the people in this world who I may or may not meet, who are the most vulnerable. Help me take my part in building your kingdom and thank you for the privilege of that!

Your disciples were not the most charismatic, charming, educated, richest men. You chose the unpopular, weak, uneducated, unrecognised, poor and simple people to spread your marvellous good news. Help me always remember that, sorry for judging people, please help me see them through your eyes Jesus…with compassion, genuine interest and seeing their potential and purpose and seeing the best in them.

God you are good, continue moulding me Lord, I have a long way to go, every day I mess up. Thank you for how easy it is to come to you, you are so approachable. I love you. Please speak to me now through your living word.

Glory to you Lord God.
Amen. Amen. Amen.
