What Do You Want Jesus To Do For You?

31 Dec

Let God be your best friend! He is a good listener. He is always there for you; never too busy to listen. I try to sit with God each morning. I find that when I do I actually get more done in my day. It’s like anything else with God – put Him first and “all these other things will be added to you”.

 
I have always loved to write. I have gotten into the habit of writing my prayers. When I do, my mind doesn’t wander to other things. I am focused on my petition to the Lord. This also helps me to remember the things I need to pray for. Another added benefit is that I have the date at the top of my page which helps me even more as I see the prayers that are answered. I make it a habit to be sure and thank God for those answered prayers.
 
Writing your prayers out also helps you to be specific. Jesus said “. . .tell me what you want”. If I mumble something like, “Bless me today” – what am I saying? I think I’m saying “I have my mind on other things and am just trying to get through this prayer”! But, if I say “Lord, I really have a lot of work today, please help me finish it all” – I’m being specific with what I was Jesus to do for me.
