Day 14:: A Prayer of Dedication

In the morning, all the way at the bottom of the steps, under the sign of grace that hangs next to the light switch, we kneel to pray.

Just four daughters of the King, on this simple landing place, on knees lifting the day and all plans and all rights and all expectations back to Him with open hands.

We dedicate the day to the One Who opened our eyes.

We only woke this day, because He sustained us. 

They are seven, and three, and 10 months so the prayer is brief, but full of powerful promises in His word.

"Lord Jesus, we dedicate this day to You. We commit all of our plans to You, and we pray that You would help them succeed, according to what you deem to be success, all for Your glory.

We lay our requests before You, and wait in expectation.

We pray that You would fill us with Your Spirit, and that we would remember that even You did not come to be served, but to serve. 

Please make us more like You today.

In Jesus' name, Amen."

What are some ways you are intentional about starting your day focused on God? Do you have certain scripture that you love to pray?
