I have been reading through my journal and I was inspired by this prayer from July 21, 2006. I thought you might be too so I wanted to share it.
Good morning. You have given us another beautiful day that shouts your glory. I want to live this day shouting your glory, just as nature. I pray that everything I do today will bring honour to you, that I will preach the good news with my life.
I don’t really feel as though my life has been doing that; my life isn’t that much different than that of non-believers other than a few areas.
I want to start living truly as Jesus did. I do not want to hoard all that you have blessed me with, rather I want to share it. I want to get to know the people I share it with and love them as you do.
I want Peter to want this too, so we can be completely in unison; one heart, one mind for you Lord. As you have before, please place this on his heart. Together we can spread the good news to the poor and to those in our church family who are poor in spirit.
Please transform us by renewing our minds.
I love you Lord and I thank you for Jesus who is “ruining my life”. I am finding this a difficult cross to pick up, but I know that you will never leave me, and with your guidance: I can.
Love, Chelsey, a sinner who wants to help change the world.”
