Father May I?

Do you remember that old child hood game – Father, may I go out to play? We used to play it during school recesses. You’d ask the leader questions like this. Father, may I take three steps forward? In answer, Father might say “Hop two steps like a frog.”  You would obey but you would feel ridiculous. Everything depended on Father’s answers. He might say yes or no or even give instructions to move in another direction.

Today, Father, May I, should be our lifestyle, not our game.

Father God, may I do this? Father God, may I do that? Father God, what is your will for me? Father God, you want me to do what? Father, that sounds weird. I do not want to be conspicuous among my friends. Oh Father God, because you said so, I will do it.

But thank God, though you were once slaves of sin, you have become obedient with all your heart to the standard of teaching in which you were instructed and to which you were committed.

(Romans 6:7, AMP)

Prayer – Father God, may I (we) love and serve you with constant love, devotion and most of all obedience, no matter what. Amen
