How’d you like to be James and John and be forever known for this story?

35 Then James and John, the sons of Zebedee, came to him. “Teacher,” they said, “we want you to do for us whatever we ask.” 36 “What do you want me to do for you?” he asked. 37 They replied, “Let one of us sit at your right and the other at your left in your glory.” 38 “You don’t know what you are asking,” Jesus said. “Can you drink the cup I drink or be baptized with the baptism I am baptized with?” 
Mark 10:35-38

All of us have a secret prayer list. You know, the one you want, but you don’t pray out loud!

God, help me to win this game!

God, please help me to get the promotion and not them.

God, I pray they get fired!

These guys just happen to make their prayer requests known for all the world to hear!

Today, get honest with what you really want…then surrender it to Jesus for what he may really want for us instead.

Our Prayer: God, may my prayers today be more for others’ benefit than mine.
