People are so quick to point the finger at someone else instead of asking God to point the finger at them.
The Psalmist David got it right when he wrote Psalm 139: "Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. Point out anything in me that offends you, and lead me along the path of everlasting life."
As we ask God to search us, know us, test us, point out what offends, and lead us, we'll change and so will our marriages, our families, and our world. Now, that's a splash of serenity we could all use! Thanks, David. Thanks, God.
I'm speaking on "Prayer that Transforms Your Marriage" and "Prayer that Transforms Your Family" at the Prayer That Transforms Conference in Batavia, NY, September 9 and 10, 2011. Dave Butts (Chairman of the National Prayer Committee) and Jonathan Graf (President of the Church Prayer Leaders Network) are the keynote speakers. For more information, please call 1-800-217-5200. I'd love to meet you there.
Do you know a prayer that transforms or have a testimony of how prayer transformed your marriage or family? Please share what God did for you. I'd love to use it in my seminars. Thanks.
Splashes of Serenity prayed for your day!
