“There is much to be thankful for, yet how shall we pray?”~priest

There is a God who created the world.  He is the originator of life.  There is no life without Him.  Yet when we pray, we scratch our heads and wonder what to pray…
 
There once were three men who were thrown in a fiery furnace, so hot that the guards who directed their execution were killed from the flames.  Yet in the midst of the flames were seen the original three men and one more!  For what did the three, pray?
 
In time preceding, it was the prayers of these three that got them their scheduled execution.  Their thought in prayer was that they didn't know the mind of God.  They didn't know if they would be killed or not.  The one thing they did know was that the God who created the world could save them if He so chose.  It was from this point of belief, they chose to live their life.
 
I think once you place your life in the hand of God the creator, knowing what to pray becomes much easier.    A prayer of worship and thankgiving becomes as natural as breathing the air God created.  With your very life hanging in the balance, prayers of intercession for others become of supreme importance. 
 
Then I think with a love that is beyond understanding,  you might say, "God. I give my life to you.  May I always live and die according to your will and purpose."  It is this prayer of total submission and complete adoration, that brings a smile to your Father's face.

It is the desire of my heart that God be Lord of my life. Life’s experiences have killed the old man and God is building a new creation in me. I look forward to experiencing the new man God creates in the old vessel known as Archie via "God Spots".
