The Kind of Prayer He Wants From Me

One day I found myself praying "Lord, help me be better; help me be a better daughter of yours". It was as if I had never realized this phrase was coming out of my mouth every time I kneeled down in the presence of the Lord. And then it struck me! That was NOT what my Father wanted to hear at all!

(Spiritual) Reality Check

Were we asking for this? Certainly not! But God in his mercy showed us exactly what we were going through. And what is most awesome, He showed us what we need to be doing.

Every believer has a responsibility to shine the light of Christ in a darkened world. So the Lord reminded us of the sad reality of our world - and our task.
