Here’s my prayer:
Lord, I find encouragement, comfort, and fellowship when I am a part of a body of believers. When my heart is tender and compassionate, I find joy in agreeing together, in loving together, and in working together.
Because You saved me, Jesus, I long to serve. You have given me that desire and will give me the power to please You. I will do my part to not complain or argue (although that’s hard for me), because I don’t want people to criticize You. I want my light to shine brightly as I look forward to Your Return!
Nothing I do is useless or in vain if I do it just for You. It is a joy for me to serve – I want others to see my joy – to share my joy – and to find that same joy in serving!
Thank you, Jesus, for showing me how!
