My Offering


While He was in Bethany at the home of Simon the leper, and reclining at the table, there came a woman with an alabaster vial of very costly perfume of pure nard; and she broke the vial and poured it over His head.  But some were indignantly remarking to one another, “Why has this perfume been wasted?  For this perfume might have been sold for over three hundred denarii, and the money given to the poor.” And they were scolding her.  But Jesus said, “Let her alone; why do you bother her? She has done a good deed to Me. For you always have the poor with you, and whenever you wish you can do good to them; but you do not always have Me.  ~Mark 14:3-7 (NASB)

Lord, I pray that I will pour out my life as a constant offering for You.  I pray that my heart will be so filled up with the things of You that my mouth naturally speaks only what is pleasing in Your sight.  Oh Lord, may I worship You with my days.  May I not take a breath without expressing extreme gratitude to You for giving it to me.

May my steps be ordered by You.  May my words be used to bring You glory!  May my heart be steadfast in the things of You!  May my life be an offering to You.  May I worship You with my moments!  May You receive all the honor that You are due from me.  I pray that I will live my life to honor the death Jesus died.  

May I not live a single day in haste or waste.  May I make the most of the moments I am given.  And may I cherish every sweet day that You give me Lord.  Lord, please increase my ability to worship You.  May I bring You the best of what I have today and every day!
