Please Make Me Beautiful

March 4, 2008
Today's post is a prayer from His Princess, Prayers to My King by Sheri Rose Shepherd.

Don't be concerned about the outward beauty that depends on jewelry, or beautiful clothes, or hair arrangement. Be beautiful on the inside, in your hearts, with the lasting charm of a gentle and quiet spirit which is so precious to God. 1 Peter 3:3-5 (TLB)

My King, Please Make Me Beautiful...

Lord, I waste so much time trying to make myself beautiful to others. I
want my character to reflect Your beauty. Deliver me from trying to fashion who
I am based on the world's standards. Let me look to You to be my mirror, my
master makeup artist. Line my lips with words of life and make up my eyes with
compassion. Cover my imperfections with Your grace and my insecurities with
security in You. Who can embellish me better than You? No one can make me more attractive to others than Your spirit can within me. I praise you for creating
me in Your image and for continuing to re-create me to be more like You. Every
day I seek You, I'm asking You for a complete spiritual makeover...so when
people look at me they see Your beauty, Your love, and Your irresistible gift of
salvation.


In Jesus' Name I pray.

Love,
Your Princess, who longs to reflect Your beauty



***Ladies, Read this prayer over and over today. Ask God to show you how to really be beautiful and He will. Bless you today!


Beautifully Yours,

Melissa

Hi Melissa,
What a beautiful prayer. The way it is signed is so meaningful to me, "Your Princess, who longs to reflect Your beauty."
God has made so much available to me, trusting I won't live like a pauper within my 'Kingdom'.
(Thinking I'll have to look for that book you mentioned.)
Royally His,
Joy

Joy...if I was a book pusher, this is the book I'd be pushin'! (Well, this and the Bible!) It is fabulous! We carry it here at the Proverbs office.

Royally His (I love that) and thankful for it!
Love,
Melissa
