My life is worth nothing to me unless I use it for finishing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesus—the work of telling others the Good News about the wonderful grace of God. – Acts 20:24 NLT
Almighty God, deep within my heart is the longing to matter. I want my life to count, to make a difference, to be worth something. Everywhere I look, I see others who are more successful, more gifted, more this, more that. But one of the great lessons of your Word is that the heroes of the faith—people like Moses, Gideon, Esther, and Peter—were ordinary people who learned that their significance came not from what they could accomplish with their abilities, but from what you could accomplish through them. You have given me specific abilities that you want me to use for a bigger purpose. It’s amazing that when I use my gifts to accomplish your work, my life becomes significant both now and for eternity. Amen.

Commit yourselves wholeheartedly to these words of mine. Tie them to your hands and wear them on your forehead as reminders. Teach them to your children. Talk about them when you are at home and when you are on the road, when you are going to bed and when you are getting up. – Deuteronomy 11:18-19 NLT   Dear Lord, just as I have been inspired by others’ stories of faith, may my story be an inspiration to someone today. May I not be afraid to talk about your past blessings, how I came to know you, and how you have guided me in so many ways. May I speak and act in a manner that shows my complete confidence in you and your promises to love and guide  those who follow you. By remembering how you have helped me in the past, I pray that I can help others get excited about the blessings that await them in the future. Please take my simple story of faith and let it inspire someone to begin his or her own journey with you. Amen.     [from 365 Pocket Prayers by Ronald A. Beers]
