At my new blog – “A Prayer For Every Day” (http://charlescameron.blogspot.co.uk), I have posted these prayers.
Lord, help us to get our priorities right – Your priorities. May our
lives be more centred on You – less centred on ourselves. Help us to
listen for Your Word – not to jump straight in with our own words. Help
us to open our hearts to Your Holy Spirit. May He move among us – in
power, in love, in holiness, in victory. Transform our life, O Lord –
May we live as a new creation in Christ (2 Corinthians 5:17). May we
know the great blessing of knowing that Jesus, our Saviour, is always
“God with us” (Matthew 1:23).
Lord, when You speak to us, help us to say, ‘Your will be done’
(Matthew 6:10). ‘Let it be to me according to Your Word’ (Luke 1:38) –
This was Mary’s prayer. May it also be our prayer. By ourselves, we are
helpless and hopeless – Without Your help, we have no hope of doing Your
will and pleasing You. We need Your Holy Spirit – May the Spirit’s
‘living water’ flow in us (John 7:37-39). Thank You, Lord, for the gift
of Your Holy Spirit – He gives us the power to ‘walk in the light’ (1
John 1:7) with You. Lead us in the way of fruitfulness – the way of
“love, joy, peace … “ (Galatians 5:22-23).
Lord, You have made us – to praise You. You call us to live for Your
glory. Praise to God, glory to God – Where does this come from? We look
into our hearts – and it is not there. We look at our lives – and we
say, “Where is this praise to God?, Where is this glory to God?” Lord,
we can only praise You when You give to us the song of praise. You alone
can fill our hearts with praise to You. You alone can fill our lives
with Your glory. Without You, Lord, our life is a spiritual wasteland.
Come, O Lord, to this spiritual wasteland. Come – and make our life a
song of praise to You. Come – and make our life a hymn that says, “Glory
Lord, You are our Creator. We have been created by You. We have been
created for You. What have we done with this great blessing? We have
turned away from You. We have gone our own way. We have done our own
thing. Have You lost patience with us? Have You given up on us? We often
feel like we are a waste of Your time – then we remember Jesus. That’s
when everything changes – We remember Jesus. He came from where You are.
He came to where we are. From where we are to where You are – This is
what Jesus does for us.
