Prayer For You Today 9/9/2012


Prepared For Action

1 Peter 1:13

“Prepare your minds for action; be self-controlled; set your hope fully on the grace to be given you when Jesus Christ is revealed.”

I try to exercise so that I am physically prepared for the demands of my daily life.  But, Lord, I need help to prepare my mind and heart for the requirements of the spiritual life.  I read Your Word and carry those lessons with me, but I admit I am still very weak.  I face trials and still rely on my own strength rather than on the mightiness of Your power.  I lose faith in Your ability to overcome my difficulties. 

Lord, help me to truly be prepared.  I need to go beyond head knowledge and claim a heart courage.  Will I let myself fall back into Your arms when I feel weak, certain that You will catch  me?  Today, I am prepared to try.

This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24
