Making Christ the Center of My Life

Making Christ the center of my life

The following is a personal prayer to assist in moving Christ to the center of our lives.  Prayer is not a magic wand to wave and experience the intervention of a divine benefactor in the troubles of our own making.  Prayer is a real opportunity to get to know God, experience His faithfulness and become better acquainted with His ways.

God is not our bail bondsman to call when we find ourselves imprisioned because we made some bad choices.  Does He care?  Of course He cares!  The Bible says that God is love.  (See 1 John 4:12-16)  He gave us His Son to prove His love, but most of all, He gave us His Son, Jesus Christ, to free us from our sin that so often leads us into captivity, bondage.  Pray this prayer and make Jesus the Lord of your life and the very center of your being!

Prayer:  “Lord, help me to love You with all of my heart, all of my soul, all of my mind and with all of my strength.  Teach me what it means to be about Your business!  Not my own!  In whatever happens today, I surrender my life, my time to you.  All I ask is that you come and lead me on in my worship and service to Your Kingdom. When day is done and I move on from it, I pray that my strongest memory will be of you, the nearness of your love, the power of your Presence!

Jesus, You are the One who died and gave me a reason to live and a way to live.  You are the One who broke the chains of death and the power of the grave when You came forth victorious over death, hell and the grave!   I praise you for the powerful hope resident in me because of Your resurrection.  You are not dead anymore, so help me to be “alive” with great passion, proclaiming Your great love to the people I meet on my journey of life.

As I move through the day, help me to keep this thought present in my mind:  “the day is not about me, it is about You!”  Let my choices bear this out! This is my opportunity to stand up for you, to open my mouth and speak to others about Your great love as well as Your grace, mercy and kindness.

I know that You know my needs before I ask!  But, I ask because I am Your child!  You have given me hope through faith, and dreams as a promise of my future.  I believe You!  And I know that Your hand is with me, for me, and upon me for your glory and for my good.

May Your will be done in my life today!  I offer my prayer to you Holy Father in the Name of Jesus Christ, Your Son, and my Lord and Savior.  Amen!!!

The Battle Is the Lord’s, but we are in the skirmishes.

The battles we fight are spiritual not physical though it seems like they are sometimes.  If we can put our trust in His Word, in the power of the Blood of Jesus and allow the Lord to do the behind-the-scenes part, the battle is shortened.  Our part is to declare what the Word of God says about the situation.  His part is to perform His Word.

A lot of us have been fighting a battle with sickness.  Some of us are struggling and fighting in our minds and flesh.  We are allowing worry and fear to attack our minds.  Our battle is in the mind.  The Word says in 2 Corintians 10:3-5;   “For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;”

Sometimes we literally have to say to ourselves, “Stop thinking those thoughts.  They are not of God.”  Pulling down those thoughts that are contrary to what God says about the situation.  Choosing instead to lift up His Word and cling strongly to it.

Psalms 107:20 “ He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.”

3 John 2 “Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.”

Our prayer for you today is to allow the Word of God to fight the battle for you. Resist fear, worry and sickness in the Name of Jesus and allow Him to bring you sweet release in the Spirit of God.
