Pocket Sized Thoughts – Prayer – Part 10

Not my will, but yours be done.” (Luke 22:42)

This is probably the highest and most profound point in prayer that a human being can come to. It is when every human desire is let go and the heart comes to total surrender. This is the prayer that God wants every person to pray. It is not the demand of a tyrant wanting total submission, but a heart of total love that wants to gather us up as we yield all we have to Him. It is the position of a child entrusting everything to the Father in heaven who will only do what is best. It will mean sacrifice. Jesus knew this but He also saw beyond to the joy that was ahead of Him; thus, He willingly went through the cross (Hebrews 12:2). Have we reached this point in our praying? Have we laid down all that is dear to us? As we do, we will see that there are far greater joys to be known.

PRAYER :- “Lord, I come to you & lay all I have at your feet, that your will, not mine, may be done.”
