Today’s Prayer (05/10/2020)

Oh Lord, I pray that people will turn from their sins and follow You. That they will get over themselves and begin to love You and others instead. That instead of them wanting to take selfies, that they would want to help others take pictures of their family. There is a time and a place to take a good picture of a beautiful place we have to and want to capture that memory, but I wish people would want to pull in their whole family or friends and get them in the same shot. This would be wonderful, Lord, if people could begin to think outside themselves and for other people’s needs instead. It would be so wonderful if people could be as energetic as they are when they receive gifts for themselves, as they would when they offer gifts to people in need. What we need are people that have shifted their attention off of themselves and onto the welfare of others. This is what You meant by loving our neighbor as ourselves. I just wish that people in the church would understand this fact and make it a point to live this way day in and day out. We can act one way at church, but we should be the same way when we leave those doors. You are so good to us God, but only a few understand this. People will not appreciate You the way they should until they leave what they do for themselves and begin to live for You instead. For how can we really love You with all our heart, mind, and strength, if we can’t even take a minute of our day a place of worship, reading the Bible, and praying? And how can we love our neighbor, if most of our time is fulfilling the lusts of our own flesh? There must be a change of heart to do Your will, and then people will begin to change. I love You, Lord. You are the rock of my salvation. I want more of You and less of me. I love it when I can serve You and others than to have anything for myself. I love You so much God and I wish others would as well. Amen.
