A Daily Prayer based on Genesis 23 for 9/17/2019

N.B. The significance of this story is that the field Abraham purchased became the first piece of land that he owned in the land of promise. As small as it was, it became the first step in God's plan to give Abraham and his offspring the entire land. Lord God, I pray that you would remind each of us that we are strangers and aliens in this world, and that our truest citizenship is in the age to come. May we conduct ourselves today in a way that will bring us honor in your coming kingdom. I pray that you will give us large dreams and make great promises to us, as you did for Abraham. May our vision of what you can do through us be so big that it will extend beyond our own lifetimes. I ask that you will show us what our next step should be in pursuing those dreams, and that you will assist us in taking that step. If that next step seems to be an insignificant one, I pray that we will not despise the day of small things. May that small step set us on a path that will lead us to realize every purpose you have for our lives. I ask this in Jesus' name, amen.

"There is no better way to pray according to the will of God than by praying his own word back to him. These daily prayers are crafted, as much as possible, to incorporate the very words of the Scripture."
