My Prayer

Dearest Heavenly Father,
I want to come close to you, once again. Speak to me, once more that I may hear Your voice of Wisdom, of guidance, of exhortation; Your sweet counsel, warning and admonition.

Who cares for me like You do? Who is concerned for my welfare like You are? Who plans and directs for my good like You do? Who has resources and supplies in abundance like You do? Who has creative, futuristic ideas as forward-looking as You do? Who has healing in His wings and beams?


Why do I even think I can make it in any endeavor without Your being involved? Why would I want to?

I will enter Your gates with thanksgiving, grateful for the life You have given me, my ONLY opportunity of a lifetime to gain Heaven and shun hell. Grateful for my existence and very being. Grateful for who You have made me to “be”. Grateful that You planned for me before the beginning of time for such a time as this.

I will enter Your courts with Praise. How can I praise You enough for Your creative Genius, for Your godly deeds bestowed upon me each and every day. I see Your fingerprint, Your handprint, Your brush strokes on the Palette of my days. From the beauty of the earth, still lovely, mercifully, even through man’s defacement, Your glorious creation still shines forth. Still the sun rises. I PRAISE YOU. Still the sun sets. I PRAISE YOU. I can eat. I PRAISE YOU. I can see and hear and sing and feel. I can WORK! I PRAISE YOU.

And foremost, for sending Jesus into my life, my TRUE LOVE, I PRAISE YOU. Oh my GOD. I praise YOU for taking care of me through all the years when I did not know You and Your goodness. I Praise and Thank You for preserving me throughout those years unto the day to come, until my total and complete salvation, when I see my Jesus Christ, face to face. OH HOW I PRAISE YOU FOR THAT!!! I thank YOU, Everlasting Father.

Now I WORSHIP YOU for Allowing me to enter into the Holy of Holies, now, by the Blood of the Lamb. Extend Your scepter unto me that I may bow down and worship the one True God.

In Jesus’ Name, My morning prayers are selah!

  2. AMEN MG!!!!! What an awesome prayer. “I WILL ENTER YOUR GATES WITH THANKSGIVING GRATEFUL FOR THE LIFE YOU HAVE GIVEN ME, MY ONLY OPPORTUNITY OF A LIFETIME TO GAIN HEAVEN AND SHUN HELL.” This is awesome MG. If we prayed this everyday, we would never be sad again. Awesome!!! Thanks for sharing this wonderful prayer with us!!

  3. Thank you MG for sharing this. Your morning prayer questions encouraged me to look up verses in the Bible concerning them and think on them. There is so much to thank Him for.

    His care. God thinks and cares about us. “How precious also are your thoughts to me, Oh God” Ps 139:17.

    His concern: God is concerned for our needs and takes care of them when we seek after Him first. “Do not worry saying what shall we eat or drink or wear…for your heavenly Father knows that you need these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you.” Matt 6:31-33

    His direction:: “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.” (Proverbs 3:5)

    His resources: “In His hand are the deep places of the earth. The heights of the hills are His also. The sea is His for He made it. And His hands formed the dry land. Ps 95: 4 and “For every beast of the forest is Mine and the cattle on a thousand hills “ Ps 50:10

    His futuristic ideas for us: Jeremiah 29:11
    For I know the plans I have for you,declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

    His healing: : “Who forgives all your iniquities. Who heals all your diseases.”

    Thanks for sharing your prayers to keep us focused on such a gracious, loving Father.

  4. MG,
    When I read your questions, at the beginning…”Who cares for me like you do?” “Who is concerned for my welfare like you are?” I could only see Jesus, on the cross. We will never know or understand the pain and agony He withstood,for the whole world! He suffered willingly; yet, asked God to forgive them. The scripture that came to my mind, was Luke 23:34 “Jesus said, ‘Father forgive them, for they don’t know what they are doing.’ And the soldiers gambled for his clothes by throwing dice.” Now, this is “unconditional love”. Thanks for reminding us, in your morning prayer, how much we are all loved!

  5. What a beautiful morning prayer. Only Jesus can answer all the questions you put forth. This reminded me of a card I just opened which depicts a bird with a baby bird peeking out from underneath the wing with morning glories beneath the nest. The verse is from Psalms 61:4 I will trust in the shelter of Your wings. Yes Jesus we will trust in the shelter of your wing or refuge. Thank you Jesus as Needles so beautifully explained above. He died and rose again and He lives. We praise Him because He lives. This reminded me of a song written by the Bill and Gloria Gaither which is as follows:

    Because He Lives

    By Bill and Gloria Gaither

    God sent His son, they called Him Jesus
    He came to love, heal, and forgive.
    He lived and died to buy my pardon,
    An empty grave is there to prove my Savior lives

    Because He lives, I can face tomorrow.
    Because He lives, all fear is gone.
    Because I know He holds the future,
    And life is worth the living just because He lives.

    How sweet to hold a newborn baby,
    And feel the pride and joy he gives.
    But greater still the calm assurance,
    This child can face uncertain days because He lives.

    Because He lives, I can face tomorrow.
    Because He lives, All fear is gone.
    Because I know He hold the future,
    And life is worth the living just because He lives.

    And then one day I’ll eross the river,
    I’ll fight life’s final war with pain.
    And then as death gives way to victory,
    I’ll see the lights of glory and I’ll know He lives.

    Because He lives, I can face tomorrow.
    Because He lives, All fear is gone!
    Because I know He holds the future
    And life is worth the living just because He lives!
