I love mottos, bumper stickers, and other pithy uses of words. They’re like darts. A few are going to stick, maybe even hit the bullseye. Regardless, creating something that helps keep our minds focused, or at least gives our memories a helping hand, can be important.
With that in mind, I share with you a prayer motto that I created many years ago. For a long time I applied it to my ministry as a preacher/teacher. Now I’ve chosen to also use it as a guide for my ministry as a writer. Over the next several posts, I’m going to take each part individually. But for now, I invite you to make the entire prayer yours also.
Please help me remember:
WHO I am, for I’m YOUR CHILD.
WHAT I am, for I’m YOUR AMBASSADOR.
WHERE I am, for I’m IN YOUR SIGHT.
WHY I am, for I’m FORGIVEN.
In Jesus name, amen.”
I hope you’ll join me as we unpack this prayer in future posts.
