Is there any meaning to life aside from God’s will for you?

Prayer, Part I  |  March 26

Cause me to hear Your lovingkindness in the morning, for in You do I trust; cause me to know the way in which I should walk, for I lift up my soul to You.
Deliver me, O LORD, from my enemies; in You I take shelter.
Teach me to do Your will, for You are my God; your Spirit is good. Lead me in the land of uprightness.
Revive me, O LORD, for Your name’s sake! For Your righteousness’ sake bring my soul out of trouble.
In Your mercy cut off my enemies, and destroy all those who afflict my soul; for I am Your servant

Psalm 143:8-12


Father, if King David, a man after Your own heart, said, “teach me, lead me, revive me”, we surely want to look to his example and do the same. Our lives are so full of decision-making opportunities from very minor things to life-changing things, that we confess we need Your direction, Your counsel.

We are knocked about by evil influence and angry people. Our souls are troubled and our faith is tested by the circumstances of our lives. Help us O’God to know that You are present, every moment and give us peace as we go about Your business this day. We say “Your business” because our lives ultimately have no enduring meaning if we do not seek to do Your will.

Show us today what we can do to draw nearer to You and surely You will draw nearer to us. In Jesus Holy name, we pray, amen.

May 28, 2020 Life here is nothing like life eternal May 27, 2020 Our hope is in that which we can not yet see. May 26, 2020 There are only 10 commandments; get this one right! May 25, 2020 We can't even imagine what heaven is like May 24, 2020 Tongues; only interpretation makes this gift useful May 23, 2020 Can evil and light coexist? May 22, 2020 Peace now...even in strife, followed by eternal joy. Perfect! May 21, 2020 The path to eternal life is simply too simple May 20, 2020 If you know you are guilty of sin, what hope do you have? May 19, 2020 Will we be able to say to Jesus, "I didn't know"?
