Last week I kept a reminder to pray on my desk. My eyes saw it each time I looked out at the students working and my heart responded by remembering to PRAY before speaking.
This week I want to continue praying. Prayer keeps me rooted in Christ, abiding in Him.
This week I want to add Colossians 4:2 (the Message)
Pray diligently. Stay alert with your eyes wide open in gratitude.
Pray not just continually and diligently, but with my eyes wide open. Wide open in gratitude. Thankfulness.
Thankful for what I see and enjoy.
Thankful for His working in my life.
Thankful that no matter what happens in the day, He is right there, providing whatever I need to handle whatever comes my way.
Thankful He is my God. Thankful He is good.
Keep me alert, praying diligently. Open my eyes wide to see You. I offer praise and gratitude for You and Your plans for me today.
In Jesus Name,
