“Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because I am going to the Father. Whatever you ask in my name, this I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask me anything in my name, I will do it. John 14:12-14 (ESV)
I want to go wherever you lead me. I want to do whatever you ask of me. I want to follow your example. I want to do the same kind of good works that you did. I want to live like you lived. I want to give like you gave. I want to serve like you served. I want to love like you loved. I want to do all the good works that you give me to do. I want to bear fruit for your kingdom. I want to bring glory to your name. In everything I think, say and do I want to glorify the Father just as you glorified the Father. These are very good desires that you have in your heart and mind and life.
These desires in my heart and mind and life form this prayer of mine. This is what I am asking of you. This is what I am praying in your name. This is the prayer that I believe that you will hear and answer. Why is that? Your promises are true. Your word is strong. I can hold on to you and your word. Yes, you can. You will do whatever you have promised. You will accomplish your purposes and plans in and through my life. You will use me in your service. You will allow me to do what you have done. You will be with me to help me. You will teach and train and guide me to follow your example. You will give my life purpose and meaning as I accomplish the good works you have given me to do for you. I will have joy and peace in being able to know and do your will. I believe in you. I will trust you. I will rely on you for all that I need to go and do your will. You can be certain of that. You are right to place all your faith and hope and trust in me. You are right to ask me to use your life to bear fruit for my kingdom and bring glory to the Heavenly Father. I will accomplish my purposes and plans in your life. I will hear and answer this prayer of yours.
Lord, I believe in you with all my heart and mind and soul and strength. You are my Savior and Lord. I will follow you where you lead me. I will do what you ask of me. Thank you for hearing my prayer and making me able to do good works that will bring glory to God.
