My Monday Prayer: A Prayer of Believing
-Roy Lessin, Meeting in the Meadow
Lord, I thank You that believers are receivers and that You are the giver of every good and perfect gift. I thank You that through believing I receive Jesus, salvation, peace, joy, answered prayer, and the power to live a life that pleases You.
Lord, make me a believer who continues to believe, a follower who continues to follow, and a servant who continues to serve. May my belief and trust in You never become just a thing of the past. May I never look back or refer to my walk of faith as the “Good old days.” Keep me ever growing, ever moving on in You, ever pressing into Your heart…move me from faith to faith and glory to glory.
May I be a believer who believes Your word and trusts it; a believer who sees your path and follows it; a believer who knows Your strength and counts upon it; a believer who hears Your voice and follows it; a believer who leans upon You and never pulls away.
Lord, when I obey You, may it be with the belief that Your ways are best; when I worship You, may it be with the belief that You alone are wholly worthy; when I obey You may it be with the belief that You will never fail. Help me, Father, not to partially believe, but to fully believe; not to occasionally believe, but to consistently believe; not to reluctantly believe, but to enthusiastically believe.
My prayer is that what I confess with my mouth will be in agreement with what I believe in my heart. I ask that my life will be a daily witness to the world that I am a believer in your Son, Jesus Christ.
