EMPTY-HANDED

Daily Prayer for May 7th, 2020  

Good morning, God—thank you! 🙂

You owe me nothing, yet you give me everything, Father, I humble myself before you and lay all of my troubles at the foot of the cross. When I come to you empty-handed, you help me to bear affliction and nourish my love for others. Please release me from the tyranny of self. The more I see in me, the less I see in you. I am your artistry, created in Christ Jesus, that gets choked by weeds of pride but thrives in the soil of a humble heart. Let my focus be on him so that he/you can work in me. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

1 Peter 5:5 ESV

5 Likewise, you who are younger, be subject to the elders. Clothe yourselves, all of you, with humility toward one another, for “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.”

1 Corinthians 10:12 NIV

12 So, if you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don’t fall!

John 15:5 ESV

5 I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.

Galatians 2:20 ESV

20 I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
