“What am I to do? I will pray with my spirit, but I will pray with my mind also; I will sing praise with my spirit, but I will sing with my mind also.”
1 Corinthians 14:15 ESV
Let us pray.
Lord of unity help us to not only be of one mind but also that our whole being would be unified in You. In our busy lives we can feel so divided, divided priorities, divided loyalties, even divided on our beliefs.
I feel as though my failures out weigh and out perform my faithfulness to You. My soul is feeling tired. Lord grant me rest. Rest in Your courts. Rest beside the still waters of your living stream.
Lord we don’t know when our striving will end but we ask for help to focus on what You see as important and not on what is but a passing fancy. Help us to examine our clouded hearts so that we might rediscover our first and deepest love and learn how to live deeper in You.
Lord help us forgive others and ourselves for not living up to the standards You have laid before us. Hold us tightly in Your loving arms so that we might know the security of being with You. In Your way of life, we find true life and grace and hope. We pray this in Jesus’ name, Amen.
