My Monday Prayer: The Center
-Roy Lessin and Marina Bromley
Yes, everything else is worthless when compared with the
infinite value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For His sake I have discarded
everything else, counting it all as garbage, so that I could gain Christ.
Philippians 3:8 NLT
Jesus is the balancing point of life. He is
the center of joy and giver of the peace that passes all understanding. He is
at the heart of all contentment, and He is at the core of all completeness. He
is the focal point of your faith and the epicenter from whom all blessings
In all things and for all things you have
Jesus. He is all wisdom, all power, all life, all love. To know Him, to
treasure Him, and to have Him is to gain all.
My Monday Prayer
-Marina (Marina's Kitchen Table)
Father, empty me. Take away the things that occupy my time, distract me from You and Your Word, and keep me from letting You being my center. Break the chains of bondage that I have placed upon myself to the things I have chosen over You—instead of You. They can not co-exist with You in my life. I choose You.
I come to you now with empty hands, empty cups, depleted of my own resources. Everything I have is from You. Fill me with You. Help me to desire You above all else, to remain open to Your will for my life, and to seek Your face in all things. Make me aware of Your presence, and to recognize Your voice speaking truth. Be all wisdom, all power, all life, and all love in my life.
May I bring You glory, God, reflecting the Love and Light of Jesus into the world. Father, equip me. In Jesus' Name, amen.
