He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. -Hebrews 11:6

If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you. -John 15:7

When a spacecraft is hurtling through the frightening void of space, the path the spacecraft is on must often be compared to its intended path. And as you might expect, its current path isn’t always the same as the intended path. Evaluations take place, and then calculations are made to employ thrusters, gravity slingshots, and other available methods to correct its course.

With prayer, we can do the same thing when we talk to God: To have the Holy Spirit gently show us where we’re straying from God’s intended course from our lives, and what we must do to get back on course.

Never go for long without checking back with mission control, because even when you think you’re on the right course, you could be off…maybe even way off. And we have the ultimate inerrant source of direction in God’s Word.


Father God,

We come before you with thanks and praise. We adore and uplift you, Lord.

Our hearts beat fiercely to make you known to the world. Please help us focus and align our energies and passion through the interests, talents, and skills you’ve given us to brighten this world in your name.

Show us, Lord, how to serve you with reckless abandon as you work through us to fulfill the purpose you have for us in this world, and speak to our hearts if the direction we are taking is not from your inerrant guidance. We never want our desired path to stray from the path you intend for our lives.

We love and praise you, and in Jesus’ holy and powerful name we pray.
