My Search

‘Tis common sense the world lauds,
Above the follies of the fool,
But I seek wisdom that is God’s,
As that one worthy, precious jewel.

O Lord, from you discernment I ask,
As I make righteousness my task.

Our Short Attention Span

Our short attention span
limits to what we can
do and pray and think —
our mind the weakest link.

Give strength to our soft mind,
O Lord, that we might find
the truth and apply today
your wisdom, without delay.

No rush, no delay

God who neither rushes nor delays, you do all things in good time, at the right hour, just when action is needed. I wait upon you. I trust in you to come to my aid. Teach me patience. Try and purify me.

We praise you for you do not forget nor go back on your promises. We are grateful that you are faithful, because we trust your word.

Bless us, O Lord, that we might be a blessing to others. Give us wisdom to speak well, courage to speak up, love to speak unceasingly so that many might be saved.

Freedom, wisdom, ways, love

Thank you, Creator of man’s free will, for our freedom. May we never take it lightly. May we never misuse it. May we employ it for the salvation and edification of many.

Give me wisdom, Lord, that I may always choose what is good and sound and spiritual. May my choices always reflect your holiness and goodness. Continue reading

The prayer of When

When silence prevails, let your Word speak gently in my heart.

When noise dominates, let your quietness rule within me.

When we find ourselves in the presence of foolishness, let your wisdom penetrate the moment.

When wisdom overcomes, let gratitude for the knowledge of you permeate and let the power of your Spirit guide us. Continue reading

Embedded in Grace

By J. Randal Matheny © 2016

Only two ways from which to choose,
The righteous way, which God approved,
The way of the wicked, to finally lose —
One swept away, the other unmoved.

My sole desire, to serve and walk
In the light of God, to praise and please,
To refuse the seat of those who mock,
Who seek the couch of selfish ease. Continue reading

Make Me, O Lord, to Know

Knowledge and wisdom are yours, omniscient God,
Our tongues confess that you know what you’re doing,
We are but stumblers in the present world,
And for the world to come, but ignorant brutes.
Never has anyone pierced the veil of death
To tell upon return what lies beyond,
No soul has journeyed there and back again,
None can teach on how win over death.
But Jesus can! Our Lord and Savior lives,
Was raised from the tomb to reign forever more,
Reveals the way, will take the saints to heaven,
He freely shares the knowledge of truth with all.
With all who will hear! With all the faithful seekers!
And such I’d be! — Make me, O Lord, to know
The gospel of Christ, the precious saving news —
This wisdom from above that sweeps beyond!
What wisdom for salvation by faith in Christ!

The God of all plans

You had it all planned, O Lord, the how, the why, the when, the who, the where. Down to the last detail. Your purpose would not be frustrated. Your beloved project would find success. Your word was fulfilled. Continue reading

Were it not for you, the journey would be too much

What a glorious day, our God and Savior, to be alive, to walk with you, to enjoy the hope of eternal life! Make us to be a blessing to others, as you have blessed us. Shine upon us! Shine upon your people! Shine upon those who groan in darkness!

Let us be as concerned to purify ourselves from immorality and the prevailing evil as were the Israelites to remove mold, stains, and uncleanness from among them. Continue reading

Give wisdom to measure our steps rightly

We praise you, God of David, Solomon, and Hezekiah, for your faithfulness to your promises, for hearing the pleas of your servants, and for blessing far and beyond all expectations.  Continue reading

Your way is simple

Wise Father, your way is simple. We humans complicate our lives because we refuse to follow your way. We live for the moment. We let passions dominate us. We live for self. Then come the consequences. Continue reading

To see who we are

Father, your glory shows your nature. Although we get only a glimpse of your power and might, yet what we do see reflects your true self.

We also want others to see who we truly are as your children, as redeemed people, as saints concerned to do right, as those who reject evil and embrace righteousness. Continue reading
