God: Filter and Loudspeaker

October 23, 2011 | 5 comments

A prayer for today:

Dear Lord,

I

will do many things today, and I’m bound to mess a bunch of it up.

Father, be my filter, sifting out things I’ve done or said that neither helped my neighbor nor advanced Your Kingdom.

And Lord, be an amplifier, cranking up the decibels on the things I do that might bring your glory.

I give this day to you.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Lauren Winner prayed a similar pray while speaking at Dordt College earlier this month. I’ve adopted the prayer here in my home, and thought it worth sharing with you as well. Happy Sunday, friends.
