Dear Lord, as your servant Billy Graham would often declare: “I’ll go where you want me to go and I’ll be what you want me to be.” Come into my life and make me your own. Do with me what you will, you are my good Shepherd, my Savior who died to set me free and draw me into your love. Thank you Jesus for not giving up on me and seeking me out when I hide in the shadows of this world. I love you, help me to know and respond to your love for me more today than yesterday.

Dear Lord, walk with me as I enter these 40 days before Easter and prepare my heart to encounter you…your unconditional love, mercy and power. Holy Spirit, show me what has mastered me in my life and give me the desire, fortitude and wisdom to rid myself of all such things to make room for God’s mighty work in and through me.
Ignite your faith to believe and be free. Commit to specific behaviors that support your choice for Freedom in Christ including a negativity detox.
You alone can free us from sin, selfishness, past pain, regret, envy, resentment, suspicion, taking offense…ALL of it that creates our yoke of slavery in life…we want to be FREE to grab ahold of all that you have already grabbed ahold of us for on this journey of life. Forgive us for our lack of belief. For giving more authority to the shiny objects in the world than to the POWER of your RISEN SPIRIT that courses through our entire being. IGNITE our desire and ability to resurrect who we are in the FREEDOM you died to give us. Give us eyes to see, ears to hear and a heart to respond this week to your voice alone and along with it the ability to respond to it quicker today than yesterday.
