Prayer Journey — Emptied Vessel

Today my mind is full, the vessel of my life overflowing. As I look at my day, there is little room for you dear God. Help me to empty my vessel of me and my desires; help me to prioritize my day with you in mind dear God. Fill me with your wisdom to know what I should do with this day you have given me. May you fill me to overflowing with your love and grace.

And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ—to the glory and praise of God. – Philemon 1:9-11 (NIV)

  1. Amen. Thank you. In the middle of a very busy, very noisy field trip day with my youngest, this is just what I needed. God bless!

  2. I pray in agreement for anything I fill my jar pales when compared to what the Lord has for me this day.
    I recently preached a message I titled ‘Of Empty Jars and a Fuller
    Faith,’ using 2 Kings 4:1-7 as the focus (Elisha and the miracle of oil). Should you or any of your readers wish to, it can be found on our website http://www.lakesidechristianministries.org using the dropdown audio/visual messages.
    May His blessings fill your jar today!
    Pastor Chuck
