In His Presence: Snatched from the Fire to Live for You

I’ve been reading through the shortest books of the Bible—right before the New Testament. You’re likely to skip over them—they’re so short.

 

 

After reading some of them, I’m learning they’re nothing to skip over. Lots of great—and heavy—stuff there.

 

 

Today, I’m in Zechariah 3. I feel led to pray this chapter back to my Heavenly Father.

 

Is this your prayer too?

 

 

Father, I humbly come before you—your child.

 

I know I am yours, yet sometimes I still struggle with my past—it haunts me. Please rebuke the accuser—my enemy. Tell him, “No more! Enough!”

 

You have snatched me from the fire and taken off my filthy clothes. You have stripped me of my sin and guilt and put rich garments on me. How splendid! How beautiful!

 

Thank you, Father, for making me yours.

 

Help me to walk in your ways and to keep your Word in my heart. Instruct me, Master—I want to obey You.

 

Be the head of my household—You are welcome here. Teach me to guard all that you’ve put in my care—to use it all for You.

 

Help me to spread peace to those around me—to be generous, to get along with them as much as it depends on me.

 

Break down the barriers that keep me from others. Give me courage to invite them into my home and life.

 

Bless you, my Lord. Bless you, my King. Bless you!

 

In the name of Jesus, I pray.

 

Amen.

 

 

 

Come alongside…Can you relate with this prayer? Which part speaks to you most? Will you share this prayer with someone else?
