Come, let us bow down in worship, let us kneel before the Lord our Maker; for He is our God and we are the people of His pasture, the flock under His care. Today, if only you would hear His voice … (Psalm 95:6-7, NIV)


Father, today is a new day.  A day that presents important choices for each one of us.  A day that marks a new beginning. Please hear our prayer.  We are not perfect.  We have made so many mistakes.  We don’t deserve your love or mercy.  But we come to you today, asking forgiveness for our past sins, asking forgiveness for making foolish choices with our lives, and asking forgiveness for following the ways of the world instead of following the ways of the Lord, the way that leads to eternal life.

When you created us, you gave each of us the ability to make our own decisions.  Left on our own, we have made a number of poor choices. We have chosen to please ourselves instead of pleasing you.  In many cases our decisions have been based on how others view us, on ways in which to get ahead in our careers, on ways in which to accumulate more wealth, or on ways in which to satisfy our own flesh.  On our own, we have failed.  We need your presence in our lives. We need your guidance in our decision-making.  Fill us with your Holy Spirit today, right now, so that we can make better choices.  Give us the strength to turn away from worldly desires, from our own selfishness, and help us turn toward you, our Lord and our Savior. Nothing – absolutely nothing – will ever be more important.  Amen.

May God bless you today and every day as you continue “Working for Christ!”

  1. Hey Dave !! Great post !! Indeed…we have to get out of our own way, and let the Holy Spirit (who never makes any mistakes) guide us in our thoughts, actions, words, and deeds…

    The wise Solomon penned these instructions for us, in…

    Proverbs 3:5-6… Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; 6 In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths. (NKJV)

    Have a blessed day in the Lord !!

  2. Aw, this was a very nice post. Finding the time and
    actual effort to generate a superb article… but what can I say… I put things off a whole
    lot and never manage to get nearly anything done.

    Therefore, the top luxury Vietnam vacation Vietnam tours packages offer the perfect
    combination of outdoor experiencer and inside Vietnam luxury travel services on actual Vietnamese dailyway of life, unique Vietnamese lifestyle, awesome
    Vietnamese record. Vendors at most malls and shops do not have price tags and it is common that when you ask for one, the
    price will be quite high because it looks like you
    have cash to burn. The quality of traditional and elegant Halong bay cruises is the same as the quality of top luxury 4 or star
    hotels on land.


  4. Right out of the Hanoi airport taxi to your hotel continue to
    be also all tour schedules, you’ll simply be having
    fun. The morning sunrise is also a beauty in itself and nothing beats having a few quick stretching on the sundeck while getting a healthful amount of sunlight in your skin. The rooms are what you can expect of a four star hotel – they’re spacious,
    well maintained and complete with amenities.
