Ephesians 1: 17-19 MSG
"I ask—ask the God of our Master, Jesus Christ, the God of glory—to make you intelligent and discerning in knowing him personally, your eyes focused and clear, so that you can see exactly what it is he is calling you to do, grasp the immensity of this glorious way of life he has for his followers, oh, the utter extravagance of his work in us who trust him—endless energy, boundless strength!"
These verses are one of my favorite prayers; For you, for me, for US.
Jesus fill us with all that you have for us today. Make us and help us function with intelligence and help us recognize Your discernment, to hear Your voice. Help us to be smart and observant in all that we do, that we will have wisdom and willingness in all the tasks set before us; that knowledge and perception will fill us as the need arises; that we will be clever, able, and gifted in the areas we are working in today. In all that we see and do today. Intelligent and Discerning.
Help us each grow in our personal relationship with You, Jesus. Help our eyes to stay focused on what You are calling for us to do today. Help us to have clear vision and interpretation of that calling for today. Help us keep our thoughts, actions and demeanor's on task. Help us overcome our frustrations and our discontent so that we might stay focused on today. Today we want to do all that You have for us. Focused and Clear.
Fill us with amazement and wonder at Your Glory. Show us the wonders around us, the beauty in each moment. Help us to have Joy in the journey as we travel to where You take us today. Help us to grasp the immensity of what You have for us. Amazed and Awestruck.
Fill us with endless energy and boundless strength. All the energy and strength that You want us to use. May we be all that You what us to be today; to do and say all that we should. Help us to stay on track and utilize our energy wisely and with discernment. Endless Energy and Boundless Strength.
Help us recognize when you want us moving and in action; when we should be still and rest; when to act and when to be busy; when to speak and when to be silent; when to say yes and when to say no. When to do, what to do, and how to do what You would have us do. Help us hear You clearly and discern Your will for us today. Lord! Please fill us with what we need for today. Thank You!
Simply and for yourself each day:
Today Father God, I ask that You fill me with Intelligence and Discernment; Help me be Focused and Clear. Show me your Glory. I want to be Amazed and Awestruck at Your Glory. Give me Endless Strength and Boundless Energy for what You have for me today, tomorrow and every day. In Jesus Name, Amen.
