God, Be in My Head

Eager to seek God, Christians in Salisbury, England, more than 800 years ago developed a prayer and worship resource called the “Sarum Primer.” “Sarum” came from the Latin name for Salisbury. These 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 said, “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 prayer was a reminder that, every day, we need to surrender every part of our lives to God. Every thought. Every word. Every deed. 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 should remind you of the importance of committing your life and everything you face to your Heavenly Father. It is a reminder to seek Him and trust in Him as you begin this day. He is present with you in every situation.

Right now, commit your day to God. Commit every problem and need to Him. Commit your worries and fears to Him. Surrender every thought to Him. Dedicate your time, talent, and treasure to Him. Ask for His wisdom. Believe Him to provide all that you need.
