From James’ message yesterday. Thought it was worth putting here:
A Colossal Prayer
God, I ask that you fill me with the knowledge of what you want for me, through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives.
I pray this, so that I may live life in a way that is worthy of you, and make you glad,
I pray that I’ll be given all the power and strength I need,
so that I will be completely patient and endure the hard times.
Finally, I pray that I would have a life full of such gratefulness that it explodes into joy!
Thank you Jesus.
