Prayer for ordinary people

"But if we walk in the Light as He Himself is in the Light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin." 1 John 1:7

Some days you pray while walking around, and that's always a good thing. Some days call for face down praying right out of bed. Today was that kind. Really, every day calls for face down praying. If I think otherwise I am kidding myself. One glimpse of who God  really is would cure that in a heartbeat.

Lord, I confess that sometimes I think I can just walk through my day without asking you for help. What a mistake that is. Help me to walk in the light today. Make me a better person today, because I wasn't happy with who I was yesterday.

Oh, I don't think anyone noticed....everything looked fine on the surface, but there is always room for improvement in how I relate to people, the things that rumble around in my heart. You know those little complaints and gripes, flares of anger over things that don't matter.

I need the blood today and everyday. Without that precious covering I don't like to think where I would be.

Thank you gracious and merciful Father, for loving me when I get things wrong over and over.

I am so glad Your Grace never runs dry......Amen

    I plead the blood of Jesus over Lori tonight as she sleeps in your care, may she awaken with the comfort of knowing she slept peacefully in your presence under your wings.
