“Bless me Lord.”

It’s a common prayer and one that I’ve used many times myself.

Whether it’s my finances, business, health, family, relationships or level of influence, the emphasis is the same self-absorbed theme.

“Bless me Lord.”

Recently, I realised that I’m possibly using the wrong prayer.

This doesn’t mean that God doesn’t want to bless His people, but perhaps a better option is, “Help me to be a blessing to others.”

Help me to be a blessing to my family.

Help me to be a blessing to my clients.

Help me to be a blessing to my friends.

Help me to be a blessing through my blog.

Help me to be a blessing to my church.

Help me to be a blessing to everyone I interact with.

A funny thing has happened since I’ve started using this prayer more…

I’ve been blessed.

How cool is that?
