Daily Prayer & Devotion


September 20, 2020

Dear Lord,

If tomorrow never comes for me on this earth, I pray that I will leave behind a testimony that points to You.

Please help me to live as if today were my last before entering eternity with You, for I know not what the day may bring.

As the Proverb says...

Do not boast about tomorrow,

For you do not know what a day may bring forth.

Proverbs 27:1

I pray today...

    •    that I will love others with a godly love,

    •    that I will be kind and considerate to all,

    •    that I will share who You are and what You have
           done for me,

    •    that I will smile at those I see throughout the day,

    •    that I will remember and pray for others,

    •    that I will appreciate every little thing and have
            an attitude of gratitude,

    •    that I will be honest and responsible in all things.

Thank You for blessing me and loving me and filling me with Your Holy Spirit.

Please feed my soul and give me strength for this day.

May You be glorified and may my family and friends be blessed and filled with Your hope.

May I touch lives and sow seeds for You throughout
this day.

In the name of Jesus my Savior I pray,



Reflecting on the Names and Nature of God

Jesus: Our Hope

By the commandment of God our Savior

and the Lord Jesus Christ, our hope.

1 Timothy 1:1

Jesus is your Hope when things go wrong; He can change circumstances when you pray. Jesus is your Hope when you’re in a hole and it seems you can’t get out. He can transform you in the hole, or He can get you out. When your hole has you boxed in with no escape, Jesus can make a way of escape (1 Corinthians 10:13). Sometimes God lets you stay in your hole to learn lessons. And your hole becomes a classroom to teach you the perfect will of God. But even when you’re laboring in difficulty, Jesus is your Hope, because He can change your attitude and outlook on life. He can teach you what you need to learn. Jesus can give you purpose and make the hole worthwhile.

Jesus, You are my Hope; I put all my trust in You to work all things together for good (Romans 8:28). Teach me what I must learn from my circumstances. When I don’t understand what’s happening around me, give me hope for the future.

Jesus is the Hope of future life for all believers, because all must die. But after our death, He will return to resurrect the bodies of all who believed in Him on Earth. You can have hope beyond the grave, for Jesus promises that you will live after death. You will live with Him forever in Heaven (John 14:1-3).

Jesus, how can I be hopeless when I abide in You and You abide in me (John 15:5)? You give me hope in this life, and You give me confidence beyond the grave. You are the only hope I have.  Amen.
