Prayer and Plans

Our time in prayer should be a time of preparation and planning just as Jesus demonstrates to us when making a decision on who would be His 12 Apostles. We should desire to know the decisions we make are right.

The plan Jesus gives us as written about in the post Making the Right Decisions is a treasure. Doing to others as we would want done to us or the “Golden Rule” is a plan for life that gives greater returns than any 401K plan ever has.

Lord, we choose above all else to live this day with You. We joyfully offer You our time, our attitudes, our energy, and our words.

Here is an encouraging video to start our day: Magnificent Obsession – Steven Curtis Chapman. Have a blessed day! 🙂

For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened. – Matthew 7:8


About Mark Shields

Mark volunteers as a member of the media ministry team at his church. A few years ago, he started an on-line Bible study guide called “This Day with God Devotional”. He uses this as a tool in his journey through the Bible. We live in a very busy world with busy schedules so this tool has helped him continue with daily Bible reading and study. Each of the studies are designed to help apply our faith in the work place, at school, or at home. Join him on this journey or check in every so often to read his thoughts.
