Sometimes I find myself wondering if we don’t miss many opportunities for such banal reasons as time, mood, shame and so many others. I don’t speak only of those opportunities that are very clear, but also of those that seem more like a common everyday event.
Examples of this are moments between children and parents that are lost because they are “too busy”, when a friend comes to tell us about a delicate situation that is going on, and we simply speak a generic phrase instead of being willing to pray, or when we have the great opportunity to speak of God’s love for someone and out of shame we stop doing it.
Finally, in 2021, we cannot let opportunities pass us by, whether big or small, and today I invite you to pray that God will open our eyes before them.
I also want to leave a passage here for you today:
Be very careful, then, how you live not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil.Ephesians 5:15,16
Remembering that you don’t have to repeat the prayer exactly as I’m going to leave it here, because each one of us has a specific way to communicate with the Lord. But if you want to accompany me, it will be a pleasure, feel free to speak your way.
Dear God, today I thank you for the year that is beginning and for the opportunities that I had last year. I also thank you for the opportunities that are to come and especially for being able to adore you and relate to the Lord every day in this year that begins and in those that are to come. I am grateful for your care.
Father, today I want to ask you to help me to see the opportunities you give me. From now on I want to undress myself from every occupation in vain and shame, but I cannot do it without your help, so I ask for your guidance. My prayer is that this year I may look at others with loving eyes, having patience and time to cultivate good moments in my relationships.
I pray that I can see what is your will and what is not, so that each step of mine will please you. I also ask that in addition to seeing, I may act on the opportunities you have given me. It is in the name of Jesus that I pray, give thanks, and ask that my words may reach the Lord like a sweet perfume!
Prayer of a mere servant of God
God bless you!

Its AWESOME testimony & conviction to what work is being done in each of us to likemindedness of our Creators teaching through His spoken word. Understanding there are scriptural relevances in our culminating to His likeness…He lights & directs our path to remind us IT’S with Him we conquer & renew our mind & heart for its His desire in us to conquer the world as He guides with TRUTH & Promises beneficial for our VICTORY. It’s his lead that allows us to be in relationship & culminates opportunities only He can fulfill. Having a heart for God lets God be who He has predestined us to be & never should we take one second for granted for that is His plan that Christ died for all! He Wills His Grace filled LOVE unconditionally from the beginning & placed Mercy upon ea of us to be VICTORIOUS with the sealing of His HOLY SPIRIT! We seek Him 1st & all things are passed unto us. Yes we have freedom to choose but life is not a weakness, it’s disciples who were instructed to be more like our Messiah & instruct from His truth for saving souls not condemning.
