God Be in My Head

Inspiration MinistriesBy Inspiration Ministries2 Minutes

Eager to seek God, Christians in Salisbury, England, more than 800 years ago developed a prayer and worship resource called the “Sarum Primer.” (The name “Sarum” came from the Latin name for Salisbury.) Their simple expressions of faith and commitment still speak to us today.

One of the powerful prayers from this primer was a cry for God to be present in every part of life. It read, “God be in my head, and in my understanding; God be in mine eyes, and in my looking; God be in my mouth, and in my speaking; God be in my heart, and in my thinking; God be at mine end, and at my departing.” This is a reminder that we need to surrender our lives to God every day, and we need His help in everything we do.

What challenges do you face today? What problems will you encounter? What conflicts will arise?

The simple words of this prayer are an important reminder to commit your life to God! Not just some things, but everything—your schedule, your time, your resources, your meetings, your projects, and your relationships. As you seek Him in everything, trust in Him.

Be confident that He is with you in every situation you face.

Right now, commit this day and everything you do and say to God. Surrender every thought to Him. Dedicate your time, talent, and treasure to Him.

Ask for God’s wisdom. Believe Him to provide all that you need. Then be conscious of His presence with you every moment.
