One year ago today I wrote this prayer.
It’s still just as true in my life.
I hope it encourages you.
Help me be a man of action.
One who conquers what You’ve set before me.
Not afraid to take a step,
and not too proud to step back.
Help me be a man who loves sacrificially,
and gives generously.
One who cares deeply,
and lives humbly.
Help me be a man who’s dressed in wisdom.
One who seeks peace above being right.
Showing kindness to all,
and being friends with the unlikely.
Help me be a man of Kingdom vision,
using my energy to make disciples.
May I be about community and unity,
not division and derision.
Help me be a man who leads boldly,
bringing others up, not down.
One who’s dedicated to studying the Truth,
and sharing it too.
Help me be a man of conviction.
Full of integrity and honor.
May purity guard my heart,
and purpose spur me on.
Help me be a man who loves You,
and loves others.
One who doesn’t seek to gain the world,
but whose greatest pleasure is You.
Help me be a man moved by the life of Jesus,
His death and resurrection.
One who lives by grace in the freedom of Salvation.
Clinging to the future hope of eternal life.
