September 3 Prayer
“So don’t be proud of your allegiance to any human leader.
For actually, you already have everything!
It has all been given for your benefit,”
1 Corinthians 3:21 TPT
Our own certainties and clever reasonings are meaningless, empty and futile. Ps.94:11
So why do we hang onto our own reasoning , why not lean into the great mystery of God which is foolishness to the world?
For everything belongs to us, our present and our future, everything belongs to Christ and Christ belongs to God.
I would rather look foolish to the world than wise in my own eyes.
‘For the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom and understanding marks all who live by it.’ Ps.111:10
God’s beauty is shown in our weakness, for it is here that we can open up to the bigger, the wider, the stronger, power of His story in us.
To be a servant that serves others and not to be a leader that demands allegiance.
When we are weak and vulnerable true wisdom is found.
So here we come today, in our own reasoning and cleverness and we lay it down to pray.
‘All we want is more of you God, for there we will find your true wisdom .
So we surrender what others may see as foolish and find our joy in loving and following You.
May we find our completeness in belonging to You.
‘ O Beloved, come and renew me!
Let me face my weaknesses and all that confuses me,
that keeps me from joy!
I seek forgiveness for my wrong doings,
I desire only You!
May all who seek you
Rejoice and be glad!
May all who surrender to You
My joy is in the Beloved!
Yet I am lowly and fear-filled;
Hasten to me, Beloved!
You are my strength and my joy;
O Beloved, come and renew me!’
