Renewal: A Personal Note and Prayer

Mick Turner

I wanted to take this opportunity to share with you a prayer that I have been using to start my day for the past five weeks or so. It is a prayer that I composed, based on the principles of praying the scriptures, and it has brought much clarity and passion into my life – not to mention reassurance of my ongoing renewal and restoration in the image of Christ. The prayer, a simple one really, is as follows. The Spirit has put it on my heart that someone needs to see this so it will eventually show up on “Wellsprings and Wineskins” as well……

  Today is indeed the first day of the rest of my life –

Today is a day of resurrection, renewal, and restoration and I greet this day with enthusiasm, confidence, and passion.

 This confident passion arises from my acceptance that in Christ I am a new creation and that I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

 Today I know that the old indeed is passing away and that the new has been born. I am a being of light and love, committed to my spiritual growth, service to others, and becoming the optimal version of myself.

 Today I declare, along with the Great Apostle, that with the power of the Holy Spirit, I am forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead. I press forward into the future toward the goal and the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.

 In Christ most blessed name,

 Amen
