Monday Morning Offering: October 21

Audio for today's Monday Morning Offering


(I posted this a few years back, 
but I should probably post it every month!)

Good morning, good God!

Some things need changing in my life, Lord,
and I wish, I pray
these changes would happen over night
but change comes slowly -
perhaps because I come so slowly to change...

I offer you my need to change, Lord,
my need to be changed, my need to be open
to the changes you would make in me
and in my life...

I offer you my need to be fine-tuned, Lord,
lest the strings of my life sound flat
or worse, sharp, in the hearts and ears
of those who hear me...

I offer you my need to be changed
from the inside out, Lord,
from the soul of who I am...

I offer you my heart to be adjusted to loving
and being loved;
I offer you my mind and thoughts to be synced
with your word and your wisdom...

I offer you my need to be stretched, Lord,
to be the person you made me to be,
to be satisfied with nothing less
than becoming the person
you call me to be...

Open my eyes, Lord,
to see your hand at work in my life...

Open my ears to hear
you calling me to follow where you lead...

Open my mouth, Lord,
to speak what's mine to say,
to pray what's mine to pray...

Open my heart to your Spirit, Lord,
as you mold and shape me from within...

Open my life and bring to harvest
all you've planted
and everything you nurture within me...

Some things in my life need to be changed, Lord,
so I ask you to heal and mend
whatever you find that's torn, wounded or broken...

And open me, Lord,
to all who cross my path this day:
help me help those in need,
lift up those in sorrow,
comfort those who grieve,
stand with those who are alone,
and rejoice with those whose hearts are glad...

And deliver me, Lord,
from any who would harm me...

Hear my prayer this Monday morning, Lord,
and every day this week...
