Prayer: 01-30-09


I realized today the importance of Your blessing in skill. God it seems like so many times we approach our stuff with a “Good enough for church” mentality. We don’t actively pursue being the best we can, God. We don’t realize that the quality of our work can be a reflection of our view of You to other people around us. God, may I never do anything with that attitude, Father. You deserve better than our best, but God, I want to give You the best I have.

In Exodus 31, You hand-picked certain artists for Your tabernacle by “filling him with the Spirit of God, with skill, ability, and knowledge in all kinds of crafts.”  You gave Bezalel the skill, ability, and knowledge he needed to accomplish what YOU wanted. I ask for that for myself, God. Give me the resources, knowledge, skill, creativity, and drive to accomplish the great things  You have in store for me, and for all the artists this organization is going to touch.

God, I can’t explain the sense of urgency I feel about this, but please begin to make this happen. This is such an important resource, Father, and I just want to see it established as quick as possible. This is so important! I know it’s important to You, God. I know because You are awakening this desire in artists all over this nation. Focus us all in the same direction. Unify  us in mind, heart and spirit so that we can be more effective for You God. 

“But as for me, I am poor and needy; may the Lord think of me.
You are my help and my deliverer.
You are my God, do not delay.”
Psalm 40:17

  1. I wrote Psalm 40:17 on a note card a week ago, and I look at and pray it almost every day.
