My prayer into the new year.

A regular prayer of mine over the last 5 years has been that the Lord would cause me to be an encourager. And over  that time I have been surprised how much I have been able to encourage others: even though I went through a deeply discouraging times. Our youth pastor spoke an encouraging message tonight about giving ourselves completely to God. And I felt the Lord speak into my heart to up the ante of my prayer to become an a person who empowers.

While I’m not sure what the real difference is between encouragement and empowering – I feel there has to be some significant difference. And so from tonight my own personal prayer will be Lord, help me to be an empowering encourager. And if your a praying person, this is the prayer that I would ask you pray for me, that the Lord indeed would empower me to be an empowering encourager.
