// Father, I’m needy. I realize again today how desperately I need you to help me order my steps. I need help. I need courage. I need the strength to open the door and live a life that is uncommon in the world around me.
Father, I’m weak. I see my failures and my weaknesses. I know that, if left to my own devices, I would live small and stay small. Help me, Father, to grow and develop and get bigger in my abilities and in my thinking. Help me to be uncommon in the way I see life and its bigness.
Father, I fail sometimes. And then I beat myself up more than I need to. Help me to remember that you said that “No temptation has overtaken me except that which is common to man.” So help me to offer grace to myself today, to recognize that I’m more normal than I admit, and then pick myself up again. Help me to be uncommon in my bounce-back time.
Father, I need more love. I recognize that my storehouses run dry sometimes and I become more irritable than I need to be, more impatient than I need to be, more judgemental than I need to be. In a world that is rife with criticism and slander (whether on social media or in real life), help me to be uncommon in the atmosphere around me. Melt my frozen heart and help me to smell and sound like You. //
Father, I have dreams. I want more than just a small life. Small thinking, small believing, small living. That’s not for me. I want more than just status quo. I want more than just common.

You are an extraordinary God, and I receive Your anointing today for uncommon success in everything I see, touch, say and do…
- for my marriage,
- for my children,
- for my business,
- for our friendships,
- for our church,
- for our community,
- for our nations, and
- for our future.
Every Friday, I join an inspiring group of writers to write for FIVE MINUTES on a one-word prompt. No editing. No revising. Just WRITE. This week, the word was COMMON.
