Let me share an example of why Claire and I have been so thankful for our decision to use Tim Tebow’s Mission Possible Daily Devotional as a spiritual disciplines resource. Here is a prayer he recently presented as that day’s entry…
Thank you, Father, for loving me so much that You want me to live a life of significance. Please remind me each day to 1st seek Your kingdom, believing that You’ll take care of the rest. As I wake each day, may my thoughts be aligned with what You say. You are the Lord of my life, heart, soul, and mind. Forgive me when my mind has been preoccupied with worry, questions, distractions, or lies from the enemy. Thank You that You’re will is for my thinking to be transformed day after day into Your likeness. I know transformation happens when I shift my focus from the things of this world to Your truth.
Show me the areas of weakness I need to change. Reveal to me the lies from the enemy I have been believing that keep me stuck and distracted. Empower me to be self-disciplined and a master of my body and mind and remain centered on you. Remind me of my job to take my thoughts captive, and give me the strength to fix my attention on what is right, noble, and true. Thank You for actively working in my life. I trust that Your purposes for me will prevail.
In Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen.
