Daily Prayer for May 17

His Yoke is Easy
At one time I carried upon my shoulders the yoke of religious bondage. I was expected to live a life of perfection, and got saved over and over again. I was loaded down by a bundle of rules like a pack animal. The heavy harness that fit over my shoulders robbed me of my joy and pulled me away from God. But the day came when I met Jesus who freed me from this religious yoke of bondage. I found the rest that Jesus promised; love, healing and peace with God. Today I enjoy a father/child relationship with God who changed meaningless, futile, wearisome toil into a life with purpose. You will become spiritually productive when you yoke up with Jesus. His yoke is easy and his burden is light.

PRAYER:
Father, I have fixed my eyes upon You as the Author and Finisher of my faith. I am running the race with excellence, ever learning, ever growing and ever achieving. Reveal those things that encumber my race and give me the power to uproot and remove anything that binds me to past failures. In the name of Jesus, I accept your yoke, which is easy, and I accept your burden, which is light. With the help of the Holy Spirit, I will do mighty acts of valor! Amen
