Dreams: Give God the Glory

I want to teach my children to have a close relationship with our Lord and Savior. Prayer habits that last a lifetime are most often formed in childhood. As adults model meaningful prayer lives, kids will learn how they, too, can talk to their Creator. That’s why each day this month I will be writing a prayer inspired by a different letter of the alphabet and sharing an accompanying verse from the Bible.

Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart.
Psalm 37:4


Dearest Giver, I believe You have placed dreams within me that are yet to be realized. Teach me to delight in You as I pursue the desires of my heart. Give me the courage to work toward my goals and not be swayed by others. I ask that You would help me achieve those goals in my life that are best suited to Your good purposes and the humility to give You the glory in them. Amen.

Beautiful psalm. Thanks for sharing it.

Of course, if we delight ourselves in the Lord, the desire of our hearts is... The Lord.

I like your interpretation better, though. :D

What a wonderful prayer! It echoes the sentiments of one of my fave songs by Barlow Girl, Surrender.
