You may not consider this a shocking prayer. But if you knew me in my earlier years of believing in the Lord Jesus Christ when I was first under outright false teaching then under sugar-coated, watered-down teaching and was pretty much clueless about being a totally devoted Jesus follower, you would consider this a shocking prayer as I do. See, it would never have crossed my then totally self-centered mind back then to pray like this.
But this prayer goes with the territory now of being totally devoted to my first love, Jesus. And I share it with you NOT to draw attention to me but to ENCOURAGE YOU to not be lukewarm about believing in Jesus. But instead to be totally devoted to the Lord and on fire with love and passion for and yearning to love, honor, please, serve, praise, worship, magnify, obey, and glorify Him! May this prayer I prayed to the Lord most high be an inspiration to you to be humbly and wholly forever His, AMEN!
“Oh God, I love you! I adore you! I want to magnify you forever! Help me obey you with every single breath this day, and every day, that you receive joy from the fruit I bear for you in humble and loving obedience to you! Teach me your will. Teach me your ways. Forevermore, I am yours! I love you, oh Lord, AMEN!”
Friend, I am nobody. I am nothing without the Lord. Please do not look at me. Please look to the Lord and cry out to Him today, tomorrow, and forever and ever, pour out your heart to he Lord, love and adore Him, seek and follow Him, hear and obey Him, live for Him forever and ever, Hallelujah, AMEN!
“Oh, magnify the LORD with me, And let us exalt His name together.” Psalms 34:3 NKJV
