A Sunday Prayer 1/22/17

Lord,

Every single day of life is a gift. I know this. I really do. But I don’t always act like it. In fact, I take Your gift of life for granted way too often. By wasting time. Wasting opportunities. And wasting Your grace.

I don’t ever want to do that again. And I know I don’t want to do that today. So I’m going to do my best to focus on what’s most important. Giving thanks to You. Spending time with You. Doing everything with gusto. Striving to act more humbly. Loving with abandon. Serving extravagantly. And expecting the miraculous every moment.

Sure, it’s a big order, Lord. But I’m confident because I don’t have to do it alone. You are with me. Molding and shaping me. And, most importantly, filling me with Your Holy Spirit.

So here I am – ready to fully embrace Your gift of today.

Amen.
