Prayers of a Godly Woman-Day 7

By Jim Gallery

Help me, Lord To Not Tire of Doing Good

"And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work."
2 Corinthians 9:8

John Wesley said it well:

Do all the good you can.
By all the means you can.
In all the ways you can.
In all the places you can.
At all the times you can.
To all the people you can.
As long as ever you can.

Grand expressions of generosity are wonderful, but I believe the small acts of goodness we do each day impact the world in a much greater way. One person at a time, one day at a time, one life at a time, we can bring kindness to those around us. And when we finish our day's work, God will say, "Well done, good and faithful servant!" ( Matthew 25:21)

So let's not allow ourselves to get fatigued doing good. At the right time we will harvest a good crop if we don't give up, or quit. Right now, therefore, every time we get the chance, let us work for the benefit of all, starting with the people closest to us in the community of faith.
Galatians 6:9, 10

Let us not cease to do the utmost, that we may incessantly go forward in the way of the Lord; and let us not despair of the smallness of our accomplishments.
John Calvin

Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful.
Luke 6:36

Today's Prayer
Lord, help me not only to dwell on that which is good, but also to do that which is good. Show me the countless opportunities that come my way each day to share Your goodness and loving-kindness. May I never grow weary of doing good and may I always give You the glory.
