A Morning Prayer

I used to start every day with this simple prayer. I don't think I stumbled upon it by accident.

"Why are you cast down, o my soul? And why are you disquieted within me? Hope in Elohim (God), for I shall yet praise Him for the help of His countenance. YHWH will command His lovingkindness in the daytime and in the night His song shall be with me----a prayer to the Elohim of my life." Psalm 42:5, 8. Our Heavenly Father is faithful.

Prayers should be the key in the morning and the lock at night. (or like my dear Mother-In-Law, Lilyan used to say: Tell God 'Good morning, Lord. Please be with me today.' & before you go to bed, tell Him, "Thank you for this day, my life, and Your Love."

As servants of God, we are called to a different standard. We are called to embrace God’s sovereignty even in less than ideal circumstances. To become light in a world that desperately needs to see Jesus. To lay down our lives, so that our Savior’s name might be lifted high.

1 John 5:20-21 (ESV) 20 And we know that the Son of God has come and has given us understanding, so that we may know him who is true; and we are in him who is true, in his Son Jesus Christ. He is the true God and eternal life. 21 Little children, keep yourselves from idols.
