Enjoy Life, Enjoy God

 How about a prayer to jump start your week?

May these words of my mouth and this mediation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.
                                                - Psalm 19:14 TNIV
Another wonderful prayer excerpted from The Valley of Vision:
O my Saviour,
I am pained by my graceless heart,
my prayerless days,
my poverty of love,
my sloth in the heavenly race...
my wasted hours,
my unspent opportunities.
I am blind while light shines around me:
   take the scales from my eyes,
   grind to dust the evil heart of unbelief.
Give me increase and progress in grace
   so that there may be
more decision in my character,
more vigour in my purposes,
more elevation in my life,
more fervour in my devotion,
more constancy in my zeal.
As I have position in the world, keep me from making the world my position...
Ride forth in me, thou King of kings and Lord of lords,
that I may live victoriously, and in victory attain my end.  Amen.
You are blessed by Jesus Christ; enjoy your opportunities this day.
