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.
