Pray this prayer every day!

Every now and then I find a prayer that speaks to the longing of my heart to know Jesus in a deeper way. Scotty Smith is pastor of Christ Community Church in Franklin, TN. Check out his blog and his church; he has blessed me with his prayers many times.
   Rekindle and stoke the fire of our wonder, Jesus. We’re too easily distracted and attracted to far lesser luminaries than yourself. We don’t want to waste our amazement on fool’s gold. It’s a perilous thing to take your great love for granted. It’s an arrogant thing to presume on your welcome. It’s a deadly thing to be underwhelmed with the riches of the gospel. Meet us… melt us… mesmerize us again.
