A PRAYER BEFORE THE WORD

On the radio this morning, I heard Alistar Begg use this phrase in his prayer before diving into the Word:

“Show me myself and show me my Savior.”  

If I hadn’t been on the interstate, I would have pulled right over and immediately began journaling about this beautiful prayer and the loving conviction in my heart.

How often I have opened my Bible and prayed for God to only show something about myself, my circumstances, my prayer need . . . you get the idea. I realized upon reflection that is the only way I pray before diving in.

At least, it was.

From now on, it will be “Show me myself and show me my Savior” before I even open the Book.
