Prayer For You Today 9/18/12


Luke 5:26

“Everyone was amazed and gave praise to God.  They were filled with awe and said, “We have seen remarkable things today.”

Lord, I confess, I have been thinking about how unremarkable my life is.  I wake up, I go to work, I try to be a good friend and a loving member of my family, but nothing extraordinary takes place.  It is just me, moving through the daily necessities. 

Lord, forgive me…I have forgotten ow remarkable it is to breathe in and out, to be alive.  Somehow I have ignored the privilege of true joy.  And how many times have I been amazed by Your compassionate covering of my hurts?  Each day that I move deeper into the future You  have planned for me is a miracle of renewal.  Praise You, Lord, for You are doing remarkable things in my  life today.  Sometimes I just need to be reminded.

  1. Thanks Lyn. By comparison, I have to think my life has been unremarkable since giving up my work in childrens/youth ministry. But of course, life is remarkable regardless. My God hasn’t changed. He continues His work in me and uses me, but in different ways (I couldn’t now do what I did a few years ago anyway!)

    We serve an amazing God!

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