praying for a change (13)

 

 

“From that time Jesus began to announce, ‘Change your hearts and lives! Here comes the kingdom of heaven!'” (Matthew 4.17 CEB)

Lord,

As I seek change in my heart and habits, may I perceive those changes as not merely something:

 

  • of good for me,
  • of benefit to others,
  • and for the betterment of this world.

Instead, may I hear your announcement as it truly is:

  • a word straight from you, my Creator and Sustainer,
  • a clear warning not stand in the way of your will and work,
  • and a call to join you in the progression of your ways into and through all that is.

Amen.
