My Prayer...

Been learning a lot about prayer lately.

From this book.  And this one.  And especially this one.

Took some time to pen a "daily prayer" of sorts last night.

Thought I might share...

Sweet Jesus,
What an AWESOME Savior you are! You speak and the mountains crumble... the seas are stilled.  You placed the stars in the sky and the light in my life... I praise you Jesus, because of who you are!  My Messiah, Redeemer, Lord, and friend. 
Tonight I give you my weariness. I'm so tired of fighting the same battles - making the same mistakes - over and over again! Right this very minute, I give You all my doubts, worries, and fears.  I give You my desire to give up and quit. 
I come to You with my thirst - a burning desire only You can quench.  A yearning only You can fill.  I offer You my desire, my gifting, my weakness. 
My need, my failure.   
My everything.   
I pour it out of my broken heart to wash Your feet with my tears - like Mary and her Alabaster Box.  I give You all that I am.  I spend myself lavishly on You.  Only you are worthy of my all. God I give you my heart and all my love! 
Continue to do your deep work in my heart and life.  Transform me into the woman - wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend, and servant - that I long to be!   
In Your MOST precious and holy name I pray... 
Amen. 

 "I WILL LIFT UP MY EYES TO THE HILLS, FROM WHERE DOES MY HELP COME? 
MY HELP COMES FROM THE LORD, WHO MADE HEAVEN AND EARTH." 
PSALM 121:1
