My Vision of the Messiah- Lent 34, 2020

Prayer Focus: Seeing You as the Messiah I need, not the Messiah I think I want

Lord Jesus, forgive me for all my wrong understandings of You as the Messiah. For all the ways I’ve placed expectations upon You than I have no right to expect with my incredibly limited knowledge. I know that You can do all things; everything is possible with You, even saving sinners! You are mighty and wise. No purpose of Yours can be avoided or overcome. When You ask, ‘Who is this that obscures My plans without knowledge?’ I hang my head in shame. All my plans and expectations melt away. You alone are the source of all wisdom and knowledge. When I speak, Lord, too often I speak of things I do not understand, things too wonderful for me to know. I am listening and waiting for You to speak truth to me. My eyes read Your Word and my ears have heard of You but there is no substitute for the experience of a relationship with You through Your Holy Spirit. I repent of my pride and offer myself, humbly to You. You are my God and I praise You. In Christ always. Amen. (Adapted from Job 42:2-6)
