So simple to say but so difficult to live out. As St. Paul struggled “…for I am not practicing what I would like to do, but I am doing the very thing I hate” so do we, but we must make every effort to do what is right and ask forgiveness for those times we fall short. Pray that we give ourselves wholly to God and fulfill his will that each of us live our lives focused on pleasing him.
My life is yours Lord, may I not think or act otherwise.
God gave us his only begotten son Jesus, may we strive to give ourselves to God on a daily basis.
Lord Jesus may I be a better friend to you on this day.
We have no greater friend than our Savior Jesus who lived, suffered and dies for each of us. We can never repay the debt we owe him but we strive to be a better friend to Him.
Holy Spirit fill my heart with a greater desire to serve Jesus.
Lord set my soul aflame with a firm resolve to do your will.
Bad habits and laziness are but a few “excuses” which inhibit us from fulfilling God’s plan for us. Pray for a deeper spiritual awakening to work with and for God.
Lord, please bless me with a deeper desire to serve you.
Serving God in everything we do should be first and foremost in our lives. But that’s often easier said than done. Ask God for the Holy Spirit to give you a boost to get and stay on His track.
Jesus, may my worldly desires decrease so You can increase.
Being consumed with worldly thoughts and deeds can relegate God to being secondary in our lives. Make God first and pray to make room in your heart for Jesus.
