Make my life a prayer to you

With all that I am praying about at this time in life… this is a prayer that I want to be at the center of my heart.  I hope that as you read, listen, and pray that this will be at the center of your heart too.

Make my life a prayer to you I wanna do what You want me to
No empty words and no white lies No token prayers no compromise

I wanna shine the light You gave Through your Son Your sent to save us
From ourselves and our despair It comforts me to know You’re really there

Chorus
Well I wanna thank you now For being patient with me
Oh its so hard to see When my eyes are on me
I guess I’ll have to trust And just believe what You say
Oh You’re coming again Coming to take me away

I wanna die and let You give Your life to me so I might live
And share the hope You gave to me The love that set me free

I wanna tell the world out there You’re not some fable or fairy tale
That I’ve made up inside my head You’re God the Son and You’ve risen from the dead

Chorus

I wanna die and let You give Your life to me so I might live
And share the hope You gave to me I wanna share the love that set me free

I just want to “be”

God, you are amazing!. I am so thrilled that You love me. I know sometimes I get so caught up in my desire to “do” but today – I just want to “be.” I like the wording of Oswald Chambers today, “The only thing that exceeds right-doing is right-being.” If I could I would be somewhere without all the distractions life brings and just sit in Your presence – being. Lord, I know one day I will meet You face to face… it’s on that day that the ultimate state of being will be… for eternity.

“Sometimes it’s hard to see. Sometimes it’s hard to get through to me. But, I want to do all that You ask me to. Help me to follow through. Make everyday a devotion to you. ‘Cause it’s dust to dust until we learn how to trust…”

…I’m putting Your armor on. I’m finding myself so suddenly drawn. Like a moth to a flame whenever I hear Your Name… Keith Green, “Dust to Dust”.

“If you are My disciple, you must be right not only in your actions, but also in your motives, your aspirations, and in the deep recesses of the thoughts of your mind.” Oswald Chambers, Utmost for His Highest, July 24. See Matthew 5:20.
