My Daily Prayers and Readings for 02/07/2013

but we had hoped that he was the one who was going to redeem Israel. And what is more, it is the third day since all this took place.

< >< My Prayer >< >

Abba Father once again You give me what I need to be reminded of and practice. For ‘if I am depressed or burdened, I am to blame, not You or anyone else. Dejection stems from one of two sources— I have either satisfied a lust or I have not had it satisfied. In either case, dejection is the result. Lust means “I must have it at once.” Spiritual lust causes me to demand an answer from You, instead of seeking You for Yourself who gives the answer. What have I been hoping or trusting You would do? Is today “the third day” and He has still not done what I expected? Am I therefore justified in being dejected and in blaming You? Whenever I insist that You should give me an answer to prayer I am off track. The purpose of prayer is that we get ahold of You, not of the answer.1 So I come to You through the Holy Spirit in the name of Jesus Christ who lives within me so that You will create in me a pure heart, and renew a steadfast spirit within me, for my one walk in and with You. Staying firm and  strong in You and Your almighty power, putting on Your full armor by standing firm with the belt of Your truth buckled around my waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with my feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace, taking up the shield of faith, with which I can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Taking the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is Your word. And praying in the Spirit on all occasions for me and mine in fulfillment of Your will. Staying alert and always praying for those You place in my path. Asking that whenever I speak, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel.(r or l) And remembering that if I get nothing else done this day, let me spend it loving You and others first, as You love me. In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, Amen.
