21 Day Fast: Day 3
I don’t know if you’re like me, but if you are then you are already starting to feel the loss of whatever you are fasting from. It’s amazing to me how 48hrs without something can make you miss it. Remember that God will honor those who are pursuing His will and His righteousness.
Today is our third day of Vacation Bible School. Our Hero Central Heroes will be learning that God’s Heroes have Wisdom! Pray that the Holy Spirit would work through our volunteers to teach to the message of Christ to our children. Pray that they would see the love and grace of Jesus and accept Him as their Lord and Savior.
Today’s prayer is an adaptation of a prayer from The Valley of Vision
Praise waits for You
and to give You praise is my greatest purpose
This is Your due from all Your creatures,
fo all Your works display Your attributes and fulfill Your designs;
The oceans, deserts, winter cold, summer heat, morning light, and evening shade are full of You,
and You give them to me richly to enjoy.
You are the King of kings and the Lord of lords;
At Your pleasure empires rise and fall;
All Your works praise You and Your saints bless You;
Let me be numbered with Your holy ones,
resemble them in character and condition,
sit with them at Jesus’ feet.
May my religion be always be firmly rooted in Your Word,
my understanding informed by Your Holy Spirit,
my affections holy and heavenly,
my motives simple and pure,
and my heart never opposed to Yours.
Deliver me from the natural darkness of my own mind,
from the corruptions of my heart,
from the temptations to which I am exposed,
from the daily snares that attend me.
I am in constant danger while I am in this life;
Let Your watchful eye ever be upon me for my defense,
Save me from the power of my worldly and spiritual enemies
and from all the painful evils to which I have exposed myself,
Until the day of life dawns above
let there be unrestrained fellowship with Jesus;
Until Heaven comes, may I enjoy the earnest of my inheritance
and the first fruits of the Spirit;
Until I finish my course with joy may I pursue it with diligence,
in every part display the resource of the Christian,
and adorn the doctrine of You my God in all things.
