Prayer Refocus: No Matter What, Use Me

Faith and Life Podcast

Release Date: 03/09/2018

Refocus this prayer to the Lord, “Watch over and protect me/us/someone” to “No matter what, use me.” This is like when Jesus refocused his prayer in the garden from “Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me.” to “Yet not my will, but yours be done.” We live in a world that is broken by sin and because of this everyone suffers to some degree and dies. Sooner or later the “watch over and protect me in this life” prayer will be answered “No”. God’s mission is to seek and to save all people. We see from the experience of Jesus and most every one of his followers in the New Testament that God’s mission takes precedence over “watch over and protect me/us/someone.”
Next Step: Continue to pray, “Watch over and protect me/us/someone.” but let that prayer be superseded by “No matter what, use me.”
Lessons: Mark 14:32-36
