Praying through Haggai 1:1

Heavenly Father, thank You for the book of Haggai and the lessons we can learn from Israel's disobedience, indifference and compromise, when they failed to carry out the work You had prepared for them to do... in the rebuilding of the Temple. Thank You for the work You have prepared for me to do in my life and I pray that I would be obedient to Your call, diligent to carry out Your will and ready and willing to do only those things that honour Your name. Help me to walk in spirit and truth; become mature in the faith and work the works of God... according to Your word. Teach me all that You would have me to learn as I study the Scriptures... and keep me ever ready to put You first in my life, for Your greater praise and glory. This I ask in Jesus' name and for His honour. AMEN.
