Preparing Your Heart

Preparing Your Heart

Each day offers new opportunities to follow in the footsteps of Jesus our leader. To continue to humbly serve others in love day after day requires a heart tenderized by, and overflowing with, God’s love. That requires spending time anew in worship and prayer, and allowing His love and forgiveness to wash over us and sensitize us so that we can hear His voice and sense His Spirit’s leading. Take time right now to ask the Lord to prepare you to love and serve others in Jesus’ name.

May these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer. —Psalm 19:14

Prayer: God, slow us down, cause us to wait on You in these moments. Remind us what it means to call You ‘Lord,’ and to know You as our Rock and Redeemer. Transform our hearts as we spend time in Your presence, then let us rise to serve in Jesus’ name, amen.
