Jesus,

It seems like every day we have demands put upon us that are necessary but sometimes harsh and unnecessary. Help us to discern what is important, to prioritize the demands upon us and to reply to others with love, patience, and kindness. We also ask you to help remind us to give you a portion of our day to sit in your presence and feel your strength around us.

We ask in our name, Amen

I Want to be Like Jesus

There is beauty in the older hymns that have been sung in church for so many years. You don’t particular song anymore.

When I saw this verse though…this old hymn immediately came to mind…I want to be like Jesus. Here is the opening stanza:

I have one deep, supreme desire,
that I may be like Jesus.
To this I fervently aspire,
that I may be like Jesus.
I want my heart His throne to be,
so that a watching world may see
His likeness shining forth in me.
I want to be like Jesus.

Lord, Save Us!

    

Psalm 118:25

Lord, save us! Lord, grant us success!

Lent is a traditional time of self reflection and soul-searching.

In reality… I should do this daily. My soul needs to be renewed, refreshed, searched, and recharged. My soul gets weary.

I cry out to God… Lord, save us! Save this land, save my loved ones, and save us from a bountiful harvest of sins.

I know He hears us. I know He hears me. I pray He grants success to all who call upon His name.

Amen and amen.
