Day 29

A Prayer To Grow As Doers Of The Word

"But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man observing his natural face in a mirror; for he observes himself, goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of man he was. But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the word, this one will be blessed in what he does."

James 1:22-25

Heavenly Father,

You are the Creator of our world and the architect of our lives. We lift our hearts and souls to You in praise and thanksgiving. We worship You with our whole being and thank You for Your Son, Jesus Christ, who showed us the way to love our brothers and sisters in Christ and how to live our lives for others according to Your Word. Father, we humbly ask for the strength to be Your hands and feet. We seek to be followers of the Way as Jesus was. Holy Spirit, help us to not sit idle but to go and do the work that You call us to daily in Your indwelling strength. Father, we love You and thank You for the privilege of building our life on the rock of Your Word for Your kingdom glory and praise alone. May we see Your church grow as we grow in being doers of the Word. We ask this in the name of Your Son, Jesus Christ. Amen.
