And do not be conformed to this world [any longer with its superficial values and customs], but be transformed and progressively changed [as you mature spiritually] by the renewing of your mind [focusing on godly values and ethical attitudes], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His plan and purpose for you]. Romans 12:2 The Holy Bible Amplified Version
Why would you want to pray to be accepted into the world when it changes more than I change my underwear and offers no tangible benefits to you, it only enslaves you being dictated by big business.
I pray to be transformed more and more into my idol, Jesus Christ, so as to life a meaningful life that is close to Him.
I do not pray for Christ to bless me with any endevour of my own undertaking to serve Him but rather for the necessary powers to accomplish to excel at the tasks He has assigned me to do (which is rarely easy) which will glorify Him and bring the little lost sheep to Him.
The thing is, when I reflect back on my service unto Jesus, my Heavenly King, it is astounding what He has accomplished in my life and through my life.
If someone had of told me when I was a child or teenager just what Christ going to succeed at doing in my life and through my life they would have been laughed at because it would have sounded absurd.
“Do not pray for easy lives; pray to be stronger men. Do not pray for tasks equal to your powers; pray for powers equal to your tasks. Then the doing of your work shall be no miracle, but you yourself shall be a miracle. Every day you shall wonder at yourself, at the richness of life which has come to you by the grace of God.” Phillips Brooks
Prayer: Thank you Jesus Christ Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) for the truly astounding workmanship You have accomplished with this difficult servant of Yours. You have blessed me with consummating fantastic things both in my life and through my life.
It is the greatest honour to serve one as magnificent as You. I laud You in Your astounding name. Amen
May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah
