prayer & reflection

Father God,

I praise You this morning that You are the God who makes known the end from the beginning; from ancient times You reveal what is still to come.

Father, my ears are often not tuned to Your voice as I hurry through my day. I want to hear Your whisper. I want to walk in a way that Your Spirit can make known to me what I need to know.

Thank you that You are the Spirit of wisdom and that You give understanding, council, power, knowledge and the fear of the Lord.

As I walk through my day today I ask that You would make known to me the things I need to know. Reveal Your truth where things are unclear.

Thank you that You are the one Who ordains and establishes. You are the God of signs and symbols and You make Yourself known to those who draw near to You with open hearts.

Lord, keep my mind, my actions and my attitudes in line with Your will today. Keep me in the shadow of Your wing. Give me discipline to read Your Word and may my heart be tuned to hear Your voice. Give me boldness to speak Your love to those around me today.

Thank you that You desire to speak to us and to show us things to come.

May our lives today be reservoirs of Your love and mercy to take Your message of hope to the hungry hearts around us.

In the strong name of Jesus I pray, amen.
