Prayer for April 27th.

Almighty God I worship you
And give heartfelt praise to Your name.
I thank You that through Jesus Christ,
My Savior, my Friend, and Sovereign,
You are now become my Father,
I ask that I feel you near
As I come to Your throne of grace.
Help me to trust You more each day.
Though You send the days as You will;
Temper days of darkens and storm,
With the days of brightness and peace.
Help me submit all things to You,
Please accompany me this day,
So today may be full of You
And a step nearer to heaven.
In my going forth be my light
And be my guide and my defense.
Give me grace I need for today.
I give myself into Your hand,
To be instructed, and guided;
May You fulfill Your will for me,
Just as it is done in heaven.
Make my life a song of Your praise,
For You are the joy of my soul
Through grace in Christ Jesus my Lord.


A little commentary. I suggest that one reads this a few times, maybe print it (permission is given to make a personal copy), and think over the word until you can peacefully put it in your own terms.

In our independence driven age we feel offended and frightened by the idea of submitting to authority. We will grow in submission to our loving God when we grow closer to him because as we grow to know him we will desire to submit to him and obey. Submitting to God is a source of blessing and joy. Submission to God starts with giving ourselves to God in devotion then we can give our actions to him.
