NOTE: When you read this prayer, try to imagine hearing my voice as I speak it to you. In this way, the prayer is reactivated, and it is the same as if I were actually praying for you at that moment. (Just like television prayers are reactivated when you watch them, although the videotape may have been shot years before.)
You love the Lord, and so you want to serve Him;
You want to do His will best as you can;
But sometimes you may wonder if your efforts
Are gaining any increase for yourself.
* * *
First, I pray that you do not feel guilty
For asking such a question in your heart.
The Lord has made you, so He knows your nature;
You cannot help but thinking of yourself.
And so He gives to you a wondrous blessing;
A subtle mystery for you to know:
If you have faith to trust He will reward you,
He will provide for all your daily needs.
But more than that, He gives you greater treasure,
And stores it where the moth cannot corrupt.
Your efforts for the Lord are never wasted:
By serving Him, you also serve yourself.
NOTE: If you find yourself responding emotionally to this prayer, don't be
alarmed; it is probably just the Lord working on your heart, telling
you He's ready for you to invite Him in. If you haven't done so
already, why don't you become an out-and-out Christian right now?
