Prayer Monday: All About Jesus

I am the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. ~Revelation 22:13

Jesus, 

I ask that You help me to keep YOU the main focus of my life. May You be the first thing I thing in my morning and my last thought at night. I ask that we find in You all that we need: strength for our day, hope for our lives, joy in the midst of storms, and a love that no one could ever outdo.  I pray that we learn to lay aside the pain, suffering, disappointments, and baggage from our past and just look to You as we run this race.  I pray that we don’t take on any fears, insecurities, and worries for the future as we run to You.  Help us to point the way to You when others around us don’t know how. Show us how to make everything we do be about You. 

I thank You that You’ve brought some pretty amazing guys into my life lately.  It amazes me that barely half a year ago I was waiting for THE ring from a guy who said he was getting it and after he ripped my heart to shreds, You took the shattered pieces and with Your love created a new heart.   

I ask You Lord, to help me.  I feel myself slipping a little. I’m not praying as much- many days lately I’ve felt like I only barely get in a whisper of a prayer here and there.  I fast my weekly fast day but not with as much purpose and determination as before.  I read Your Word but I’m not devouring it like when I could barely survive the day without You because of the pain.  I’m grateful for the healed heart and the promise of a bright and wonderful future, but I need You more than ever so that I don’t lose what we have due to contentedness with where I am.  

Lord Jesus, let every breath I breathe and every beat of my heart be for You.  I love You Jesus with all my heart.
