Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of Heaven.
Dear Heavenly Father
I acknowledge Your superiority over all things and every living being. Without Your constant attention on creation all that I know would fall apart and I'd be totally lost. Thank You for being such a solid base for me to build my foundation on. Thank You for creating me.
I come to You with a spirit in need of help. My culture tells me all I have to do is think of what I want and I can achieve it. I know better than that. I declare my dependence on You for my next breath and all of my future plans. Thank You for loving me.
You gave each of us a unique spirit, some call them personalities. You're no "cookie-cutter" creator, even different animals within a species have special personalities. Help me use my uniqueness to tell others of Your glory by focusing people's attention on You and Your love. Thank You for personalizing me.
I fall to my knees as I see my shortcomings when I compare myself to Your holiness. I quickly see I can never be in Your presence with all of my stains and sins. You knew I'd need a savior to come and stand in the gap to fill this chasm I'd never be able to cross. Thank You for saving me.
What can I offer You in return for such compassion? How can I ever hope to repay You for giving me Your all on the cross? You drained Your very life blood just so I could come into Your family. I grant You the highest place in my life. Desire me with a conviction to give my all to You. Thank You for equipping me.
In exchange for my commitment to You by declaring my dependence on You You promise me Your kingdom. How incredibly remarkable You are to place me in Your throne room. What other god would be so generous? There's none that I know of. Thank You for preparing me.
Remind me there are forces at work around me. They want nothing more than to make me fail in my attempts to get Your words out to reach more people with Your offer of hope and love. I know You'll give me assistance on the spiritual realm as needed to aid me in my assignments. Thank You for reinforcing me.
It's in the matchless name of Jesus, the One who gave His all, that I come to You now. AMEN
