My Monday Prayer: Daily Bread
-Roy Lessin, Meeting in the Meadow
Your words were found, and I ate them, And Your word was to me the joy and rejoicing of my heart; For I am called by Your name, O Lord God of hosts. Jeremiah 15:16 NKJV
Gracious Father, thank you that we can know Your heart and hear Your heart through the words You have spoken.
Thank You that Your words are like no other—their taste is sweet,
their sound is a symphony, their power is a transforming light. They are a lamp
to our feet and a light to our pathway.
I ask that my children and I will always hunger after Your words.
Increase our appetite.
May we find Your words to be delightful, whole and pure,
abundant in grace, rich in mercy. Feed us, Father, with fresh bread, living
bread, daily bread. Nurture us in our spirits, teach us that we cannot
live on bread alone, and that we need You to sustain us with every word
that comes from Your mouth.
Break to us the bread of life.
I thank You, Father, that Your words can be found, can be eaten,
and can be known. May we find Your words to be the joy and rejoicing of our hearts. May we daily realize the awesome privilege we have to be
called by Your name, to receive Your words, and to be a part of Your forever
