Opening Prayer

Lord Jesus, sometimes I am so stupid and ungrateful. All You do for me, and yet I simply take it for granted and want more. I am sorry for the presumption of my heart and the leprosy of ingratitude that permeates my selfish soul. I apologize for not being the one to come back and say thanks. You have healed my mind, body, soul, emotions and relationships of so much. Like Elisha, I feel like a new child and want to have a grateful heart that acknowledges You as the only God of my life. Teach me to be as faithful to You as You are to me. InSpirit me to die with You, live in You, and endure with You so that I might reign with You forever. I cannot do it without you, Gentle Jesus. Touch me again – I will remember this time!
