I want to be better…

(Apologies for missing praying with you yesterday)

My Father, my LORD, I long to be better at being a faithful child of Yours. Sometimes I miss the boat because I let busyness crowd You out, and for that I am profoundly sorry.

Today, take charge of every idle thought, every idle moment, every purposeful act, every encounter, and every emotion which draws me away from Your purposes for me.

I want to be like You, Father. Help me be better at that today. Keep my eyes and thoughts and actions centered on only You today, for I pray this in the matchless name of Jesus, my LORD. Amen.

Verse for Today: “We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ” (2 Corinthians 10:5).
