The One Benediction You (and Others!) Need

Spreading The Truth One Byte At A Time

Giving Thanks...Always!

Answered prayer. Success. Victory. We all want to be blessed, to achieve great things, and to overcome our challenges. But when we reach for these desires we can never quite grasp them. The pursuit of happiness never makes anyone happy.

That’s why my spiritual father, Mel Huyard, encouraged me to Be all and only for Jesus!“Jesus is Everything.” He said. He wanted the best for me. To honor that I like to pray Psalm 20. Recently, Psalm 20 inspired me to write a “Benediction of Devotion.”

I’d like to share this short prayer of blessing with you. It’s meant so much to me and to those I’ve given it to. Pray it for yourself. Pray it for others. It’s a prayer about the one thing that matters most in life: devotion to Christ.

Ultimately, it’s a prayer that satisfies all our desires and solves all our problems. Because that’s what happens when we see the goodness and beauty of the Lord Jesus Christ in our midst and set our heart’s affection on him alone. Even in the stresses and pains of life – especially then – Jesus’ yoke is easy! Being closely connected to him in all that we do truly is delightful! (Matthew 11:28-30, Psalm 43:4).

I invite you to receive this benediction and then share it with others:

Benediction of Devotion

May the Lord remember your devotion to Christ

And accept all your prayers at his altar

May Jesus be the desire of your heart

And make all your plans succeed

We will shout for joy when you are victorious

And we will raise our banners in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord!

(Inspired by Psalm 20:3-5).

David was a man after God’s own heart and he shows this in Psalm 27. Join me and “take heart” from David to pray One Thing.
