Devote yourselves to prayer, keeping alert in it with thanksgiving
Food for Thought:
The word “devotion” is an interesting one. Merriam Webster defines devotion as “a feeling of strong love or loyalty: the quality of being devoted.” Devotion means to expend one’s time, energy, and talents in building up a relationship. This is true of our relationship with God. The more time, energy, and talents we expend on our relationship, the stronger the relationship will be.
God, we come before you this day in humble adoration. We ask that you guide us to be devoted to you and to devote ourselves in building up your kingdom here on earth. In your holy and precious name we pray, Amen.
