Pray: Dear Heavenly Father, we praise You and thank You for gently guiding us and molding us, each and every day. Sometimes we get so wrapped up in our own selfish desires, and we forget that we are called to extend love and light to those around us. At times, we are too busy to give someone our time, our help, or an ear to listen. But You are showing us, Lord, that we can be different. Help us to not live with a lack mentality, God. Often times this is what it boils down to. We believe that if we give someone our time, or some other resource, we will be lacking for our own needs. But, Lord, we realize now that anytime we give something away in Your name and in Your honor, it will always come back to us. It will never be wasted. Thank You, God, for showing us the way. And today we ask You to help us remember this as we encounter other people in our lives who need a little love. We can help raise others up because You raise us up. We praise You, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We praise You, King of kings. Thank You, God. It is in Jesus’ name that we humbly pray, Amen.
Practice Gratitude: What are you grateful for today? I am grateful that I can give others my time or an ear to listen, when they are in need of a friend. I am grateful that God raises me up, and I can in turn help raise others up. And I am grateful for God’s nudges when He gently shows us the way.
Praise. Here is today’s song! Enjoy! King of Kings by Hillsong Worship
