Personal Prayer

I really don’t like sharing my own personal prayers that I write to God. Because people will be able to see my thoughts and even my struggles. But God calls us to be real and transparent. So here we go.

I made a decision to follow You when I was 5 years old. I am now 52 years old, so that means I have been a Christian for 47 years! No news to you. You would think I would have it down by now.

One would think I could live out my life in such a way where I would never let You down. You would think, I would have Satan figured out and I could explain his every move. I would love to say, I could know and believe every verse of the Bible and never waiver. But there is one verse that I am still trying to get a hold on to! Help me with this Lord.

John 14:11-12 says, “Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me, or at least believe on the evidence of the miracles themselves. I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.” Lord, You did something that blows me away. Like healing the sick, raising the dead, feed the 5000, and walked on water! Raise my level of faith this morning! Christ in me, the Hope of all Glory lives inside of me! Help me today to practice what You are showing me.

Lord, I know you Word is Truth! But help my unbelief, doubt, and my fears. It has become so easy to slide into the routine of religion and just do church. Forgive me Lord, when I pray small prayers that require no faith. Forgive me, when I come to you not expecting miracles or believe that lives will not be changed.

Help me stand on your truth and strengthen my faith in You! Make me strong in you and help me to live a life of faith that will please you! Help me to hear You and pray the prayers that you would pray today!

To You be all the Glory forever and ever! Amen!
