Maybe you’re thinking it’s time to think fresh thoughts and do some spiritual housecleaning. Read and reflect on the prayer below—notice that it uses several words beginning with the letters “R” and “E.” God bless you as you yield your heart and life to Him!
Revitalize, rejuvenate and refresh me. Restore in me the joy of Your salvation, and continue to reveal Yourself in deep and profound ways. Fill and re-fill me. Use and re-use me for the sake of Your Kingdom of Light.
Lead me again and again into repentance, and re-create in me a clean heart. Restrain me whenever I’m tempted to do or say something I shouldn’t. Re-train me, and renew a right spirit within me.
Relax me so I can hear and respond to Your still, small voice. Teach me to listen, pray, seek, obey and love relentlessly as You lead and guide. Rekindle my devotion to Jesus Christ, and give me new incentive for responding to His grace.
Re-inspire me. Refurbish me. Remind me to re-invest the time and gifts You’ve entrusted to my care. Recycle everything You’ve redeemed in me, and make me a reflection of God’s remarkable grace.
Relying totally on You, Holy Spirit, I resolve to bring glory to my Father in heaven. And I pray in Jesus’ name for the restoration of His Kingdom here on earth. Amen.
(P.S. How many R.E. words can you count?)
