This Morning’s Prayer – Wednesday, 04/14/2021

Good morning, mighty men and women of God! This morning’s prayer considers the value of a person and the importance of relationship with others during life.

 Father, I have been bombarded with thoughts that are based on the concept of excellence and the value of an individual in Your eyes.

This is what wins people’s attention, knowing they are valued and appreciated.  This was the way Jesus operated during His tenure walking the earth.

People were drawn to Him because of His compassion and interest in who they were.  They saw it in His eyes and experienced it through His actions, knowing it was genuine. 

He did not lose focus of His calling, but understood that compassion for people is what the Holy Spirit uses to draw all people to the truth of Your Word.

When others are welcomed and accepted for who they are, they become more interested in who we are and how we conduct ourselves.

The relationship between You and Jesus provided Your creation a way to be reconciled to You.  Our relationship with Jesus is what frees us to come into Your presence.

You care so very much for each of us because You have individually created each one of us.  This is the way we need to see others.

We must see each person, regardless of their appearance or their manner of communication, as someone specifically crafted by You. 

This is what has escaped the assembling of ourselves together, and it’s not a recent problem.  The church of Ephesus, in Revelation 2, suffered from this same deficiency.

Father, teach us how to value those around us.  Show us how to honor and esteem those we encounter in meekness and humility. 

Cause us to become magnets of compassion that draws others to us because they experience something different from us.

It’s in the mighty name of Jesus, I pray. Amen! 

Have a great and God-filled day! Shalom!!
