Eager Heart (prayer)

eph

(Please join me in this prayer to show God’s love to others.)

Lord,

Thank You for my ability to serve,

An eager heart with pure desire,

Give me opportunities to shine

Your light in shadowy places,

To show this dark world

You exist, You care, You love.

Lift my arms in strength,

Help me to carve out time,

Prioritizing You above the

The loud worldly demands

Give me perseverance to follow through

And ensure me my efforts make a difference

In Your present and glorious kingdom.

Let joy spring forth from these hands

The same joy I have

When You lean forward to pick me up

Like a little child with raised arms.

Help me to serve even my enemies

So that they know

There is truth in Your Word

And therefore be changed to

Serve You also.

None of this would be possible

If not for the Spirit living inside me,

Before the day I said Yes to Jesus

I served only myself and my sinful desires,

Thank You that You have birthed in me something new

For this overflowing sense of love, heavenly Father,

We praise You.

In Christ’s Name, Amen.
