Prayer and Devotion

This poem was written to inspire devotion to God in your daily activities. Because of Jesus, the Spirit of God is in your heart so you are not confined to devotion only at church but in all that you do. Celebrate God’s care of you by beginning every day, every decision, or every business dealing with a prayer.

Step Ahead

The opportunity
To be all you can be
Is right before you
If you get on a knee.

Beginning each day
With a prayer from the heart
To plan … think … decide
A new thing to start.

Listing all your dreams
In your mind as you think
And adding more dreams
To stay in sync.

Reaching for the stars
Can be a threat
But not reaching
Could lead to regret.

So reach up high
To the ONE you can rely
To the ONE who provides
And always guides.

About Mark Shields

Mark volunteers as a member of the media ministry team at his church. A few years ago, he started an on-line Bible study guide called “This Day with God Devotional”. He uses this as a tool in his journey through the Bible. We live in a very busy world with busy schedules so this tool has helped him continue with daily Bible reading and study. Each of the studies are designed to help apply our faith in the work place, at school, or at home. Join him on this journey or check in every so often to read his thoughts.

  1. Thanks for the great reminder that we can always pray. Love this:

    The opportunity
    To be all you can be
    Is right before you
    If you get on a knee.

    Be blessed. God is God and in control.

  2. I just started reading a book called Prayer, by Timothy Keller because I struggle with praying everyday. I found myself only praying when I needed something rather than praying because I am thankful for what God is preparing for me.
