A Prayer For Today

Bob Young
[permission is given to reprint with credit noted]

This morning God, I am thinking about a saying I have heard many times. "You are the only Bible that some people will ever read; the only sermon some people will ever hear; the only 'Jesus' that some people will ever see."

I understand that this means my life as a Christian should be a clear picture and example of Your love and a light in the darkness, because many people will never step through the doors of a church or listen to an evangelist or attend Christian events to hear the gospel. Please help me to reflect Christ in my life--to be a godly testimony to other people. Help me to be more like Jesus every day and draw nearer to You. I cannot live an exemplary Christian life without the power of the Holy Spirit strengthening me and guiding me every day. So right now, I submit to that strength and power. Thank you, God, for hearing me. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
