The Lord’s Prayer

Our Gather in heaven, hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. (Matthew 6:9-10)

My read prayer written by Lloyd John Ogilvie for today:

God, give me the desire to do what I already know of Your will, so that I may know more of it and make it my will. I want to be a positive, open, receptive person who willingly receives Your guidance for each new challenge. You have shown me that discovery of Your will comes from consistent communion with You. And I also know that such communion is vital for helping me to prepare for all the big decisions ahead of me in the future.

I recognize that today’s obedience results in tomorrow’s guidance. Action is the nerve center of my spiritual life. Motivate me to do what You have called me to do in the mundane details of life so that I will be ready to do Your will when momentous opportunities arise. Keep my soul fit with the consistent practice of Your presence. And may prayer throughout the day be as natural as breathing.

I am filled with awe and wonder…gratitude and praise…that You who are Creator of the universe and Sovereign Lord of all nations would use me to carry out Your will in my small realm of influence.

Through Christ, through whom I am reconciled with You forever and recommissioned to serve You daily.

Amen.
