Open Up My Life Lord…

Ministry is unending, tiring. For my camp ministry friends who are in the middle of the grueling off season of retreats, promotion and recruiting,  I wish to give this reminder that effective ministry comes from the regular devotion to God through His Word. I remember how easy it is to be lost in business.

Pause and meditate with this prayer to help keep you focused.

Open my heart dear Lord, examine it with Your Word.

Open my mind Lord to think according to Your Word.

Open my eyes Lord so that I may see by Your Word.

Open my ears Lord so that I will hear through Your Word.

Open my mouth Lord so that I speak Your Words.

Open up my life and ministry dear Lord, to be lived in the character of Your Word.

Be renewed in the Word each day. God bless you all as you serve Him.


About the Ordinary Hiker

A Christian camp director for many years, I enjoy ministry and being outdoors. I refer to God's creative wonder as the testimony of creation, a special place where God brings His word to life. Its where I like to be and where God speaks in His gentle voice in the awe of His creative work.

    Someone once challenged me to add eight verses to my quiet time — a section of Psalm 119 — every day. I’ve gotten away from it. This post was a great encouragement. Thanks.
