A Billboard of Your Grace

“O my Father, give me eyes to see, a heart to respond, and hands and feet to serve you wherever you encounter me! Make me a billboard of your grace, a living advertisement for the riches of your compassion. I long to hear you say to me one day, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant.’ And I pray that today I would be that faithful servant who does well at doing good. In Jesus’ name I pray, amen” (Max Lucado).

I would only make one addition to this prayer:

“Help me to live in the freedom for which you died to set me free. Help me not to fall back into the yoke of slavery to approval-addiction or bitterness. May my life display your lovingkindness to everyone I meet today and every day. Amen.”
