Hatred paralyzes life; love releases it. Hatred confuses life; love harmonizes it. Hatred darkens life; love illuminates it.
~ Dr. Martin Luther King jr.

A Simple Prayer

"Dear Lord...

Allow me to see good in the lives of people today. So many find fault, criticize and major on the minors of life. Help me to see the potential you see in others.

And speaking of potential, allow me to see my own unique potential for making a positive difference in my world. Jesus, you know me -- you really know me. Show me what could give us great joy while working together in the ways of your choosing.

A great need of mine is to trust you -- completely. I don't want "I'm trusting God" to be a cute catch phrase I use as a Christian. Give me a trust that causes me to hope in you at all times, brings peace to my soul as needed, and remains a part of my life for all my life.

Teach me to recognize your voice in my hurried, everyday world. Oh, that sounds so very simple: but it's not. Strengthen me from the inside out. Help me to know you, love you, hear your voice, and follow you.

I want to finish strong, Lord. Real strong. Protect me, go before me, and strengthen my heart to avoid being sinful and sinfully complacent.

Give me a big, long-lasting portion of laughter! Help me to always help others discover you as the delight of their lives.

I love you, Lord. Thanks for listening, answering and sharing your life with me.

In your name I pray, Amen!"
