“Lord, may nothing separate me from You today.  Help me walk by the Word and not by my feelings.  Help me to keep my heart pure and undivided.  Protect me from my own careless thoughts, words and actions.  Keep me from being distracted by MY wants, MY desires, MY thoughts on how things should be.  Help me to embrace what comes my way as an opportunity…rather than a personal inconvenience.  Help me to rest in the truth of Psalm 86:13 “Great is your love toward me”.  That the Saviour of the world would desire a few minutes with me this morning!  Lord help me to remember what a gift it is to sit with You like this.” Amen.
