Today I Pray

He who is faithful in a very little thing is faithful also in much; and he who is unrighteous in a very little thing is unrighteous also in much. (Luke 16:10)


Today I pray to spend every moment serving others and choosing not to serve self.


Today I pray to faithfully and diligently do the next thing and to not choose the path of laziness.


Today I pray to respond to each spill, squabble and sin with love and patience, pointing those around me to Jesus and choosing not to allow anger and frustration any portion.


Today I pray to lay down my life in every moment, every decision and every action because my Lord and Savior did so for me and I have no right to do any less.

And to whomsoever much is given, of him shall much be required. (Luke 12:48)
