Good thoughts for us all to remember here, from my friend Elihu at Elihu’s Corner

Heavenly Father,

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to reach out to believers and non-believers through this medium.

Grant me wisdom to respond properly to those with whom I interact both here and in other places that you may be glorified.

Remind me daily to cultivate a spirit of humility. Crush my pride and let me not forget that what I write is not to glorify my own self, but to honor You. Success is not dependent on stats, likes, shares, or comments, but rather the effect produced on those who read. I may never see the outcome of what I write, but I pray for those who read to draw ever nearer to You.

May I, by your grace, speak life, uphold truth, honor You, and properly handle your word.

May the words I share strengthen those who seek you, encourage the faint-hearted, and shine a light to those in darkness.

Forgive me when I fall short and may I respond with humility when I am corrected.

Please, O Lord, guard my heart from the schemes of Satan, for he loves to attack those who proclaim your word.

Father, please bless me with clarity of thought and the ability to communicate effectively.

All these blessings and favors I ask in the name of your Son, Jesus Christ,

Amen.
