Revive My Prayer Life

I suck at having a consistent prayer life. I am going to try and post here daily at least.

Daddy, I’m freaking out.

I don’t know what to do about these money issues. I only have $29.61 ish until i get paid on the 25th. That isn’t even a full tank of gas and I use two in a week at this point. And if I move out and in with Cortney, which I feel like I’m being told it is the right time to, I will spend more gas going to work and less going to school but it still is gonna be probably close to the same. I really don’t know what to do. I just know I have to get to school and I have to get to work. 

Dad, can I tell You about this boy?

I’m sure you already know him, but his name is Joshua. He seems to really love You and everything about You and Your people. He is building a relationship with not only me but with important people around me, like Mikie, Julie, and some of my youth kids. I really like him. He is seemingly wonderful and fulfills most of who I want to spend the rest of my life with. He isn’t really “country” which is something I want a lot. I don’t know if maybe he will develop that over time or something but I really feel like I could spend forever with him. I feel like through our relationship we both would grow in You, which really is the whole goal isn’t it? But right now I’m just waiting and it is kindof getting harder. Help me wait for proper timing and on both You and his decisions. I’m tired of just giving into fleshly desires that bring me to dating people that I know aren’t good for forever just because I’m alone. Help me to wait on You and Your understanding especially in this situation. 

Daddy, help me to live for You better.

You know how Paul says that he does the very thing he hates? well I feel like I can say the exact same things. Help me to better turn and run away from such things so that I can better serve You and Your people. I truly want to never again do those things but I keep finding myself falling back into it. Help me make an about face and run.

This is no sacrifice, here’s my life.

Jesus,

To you I give my future
As long as it may last
To you I give my present
To you I give my past

God,

I’m ready for you to do whatever You will in my life.

It’s Yours.

Only you

Take my heart, I lay it down

At the feet of You whose crowned

Take my life, I’m letting go

I lift it up to You who’s throned.

And I will worship You, Lord

Only You, Lord

And I will bow down before You

Only You, Lord

Take my frets, take my fears

All I have, I’m leaving here

Be all my hopes, be all my dreams

You’re my delight, be my everything.

And I will worship You, Lord

Only You, Lord

And I will bow down before You

Only You, Lord

And it’s just You and me here now

Only You and me here now

And I will worship You, Lord

Only You, Lord

And I will bow down before You

Only You, Lord.

I don’t wanna talk about you like you’re not in the room, wanna look right at you, wanna sing right to you!

Daddy I pray you would just rock our worlds.

I pray that you will open our eyes to the fact that we so desperately need you to get through our lives. Not just our lives but our day to day.

life.

life is so busy, i too often let it get in the way of my praying habit that im trying to get into.

i dont see how i find it so hard, just like i talk to my boyfriend or my best friends everyday almost constantly that is how i want to talk with God.

like Paul said in Romans 7:15-18. “For I do not understand my own actions. For I do not do what i want, but I do the very thing i hate. Now if I do what I do not want, I agree with the law, that it is good. So now it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells within me. For I know that nothing good dwells in me, that is, in my flesh. For I have the desire to do what is right, but not the ability to carry it out.” (ESV)

kindof..

wow, I’ve been failing so much.

Lord, help m remember to turn to you rather than just holding it in.

Lord give me direction for this whole money problem, because it is all i can think about.
