Anyone who is having troubles should pray. ... When a believing person prays, great things happen. -James 5:13,16 NCV
Father, keep us mindful that we are citizens of the kingdom of Heaven first and foremost and that our true allegiance is to be to Jesus Christ. While we may debate political viewpoints, help us remember that those are not of ultimate importance. Amen

GOD'S WILL FOR YOU




I Thessalonians 5:16-18

"Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus."

Dear Lord, so many times I tell myself I don't know your will, that I feel lost, and then I see a verse in your Word that so clearly states You will for ME.  

You want me to rejoice always, pray continually and give thanks in all circumstances.  This is Your will for Me...and I want an easier path.  But what peace, joy and freedom come from being obedient to these three things.  

Hard, but not impossible, because the indwelling Holy Spirit, our Helper gives me the grace and power to be obedient, and KNOW I'm pleasing you as I do Your will!  Lord no matter what comes into  my life, help me to rejoice always, pray continually, and give You thanks in all circumstances.  I love You.  Amen.



Amen

Eternally Grateful

Father, thank you for life, for so many things you give us that bring such meaning and fulfilment. Most important of all is for Yourself, your love, mercy, forgiveness and the assurance of your presence with us in time and our presence with you in eternity.

Romans 8:31-39 (NLT)
     31  What shall we say about such wonderful things as these? If God is for us, who can ever be against us? 32  Since he did not spare even his own Son but gave him up for us all, won’t he also give us everything else?  
33  Who dares accuse us whom God has chosen for his own? No one—for God himself has given us right standing with himself.
34  Who then will condemn us? No one—for Christ Jesus died for us and was raised to life for us, and he is sitting in the place of honor at God’s right hand, pleading for us.
35  Can anything ever separate us from Christ’s love? Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or hungry, or destitute, or in danger, or threatened with death? 36  (As the Scriptures say, “For your sake we are killed every day; we are being slaughtered like sheep.”)
   37  No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.
38  And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. 39  No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.

     Jesus you said: “……My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life.” John 10:10 (NLT)

You have certainly done that for which we are eternally grateful!


Amen

Prayer of Desperation


O Father,
You are my place of refuge.
You are all I really want in life.
Hear my cry, for I am very low.
Rescue me from my persecutors,
for they are too strong for me.
Bring me out of prison so I can thank you.
The godly will crowd around me,
for you are good to me.
- Psalm 142:5-7 NLT

Amen

For Conscience and Courage

Loving God,
lead us beyond ourselves
to care and protect,
to nourish and shape,
to challenge and energize
both the life and the world
You have given us.
God of light and God of darkness,
God of conscience and God of courage
lead us through this time
of spiritual confusion and public uncertainty.
Lead us beyond fear, apathy and defensiveness
to new hope in You and to hearts full of faith.
Give us the conscience it takes
to comprehend what we’re facing,
to see what we’re looking at
and to say what we see
so that others, hearing us,
may also brave the pressure that comes
with being out of public step.
Give us the courage we need
to confront those things
that compromise our consciences
or threaten our integrity.
Give us, most of all,
the courage to follow those before us
who challenged wrong and changed it,
whatever the cost to themselves.
Amen

Faith...

We quote this scripture often. But do we believe it? Do we honestly believe faith can move mountains?

God's Word is truth. Everything in it is truth. The problem is we don't follow through our belief with action.

It's time to pray big. It's time to believe big. It's time to receive big.....

He is able and He is willing.

Read the Word and know it is truth. Believe for miracles according to the will of our God! Faith can move mountains!

Amen

When the Door Closes

Last Thursday I went in for surgery for my pancreatic cancer. I believed and prayed right up to last minute that surgery might be possible and that this could be God's way of healing me. But I found out that the cancer had spread and it would do no good to operate. What that leaves me with is either God is going to do a miracle (I believe in miracles, but I believe God does them according to His will. I have no reason to be convinced He will do so in my case), or it is my time to go home. I appreciate all past prayers and  all continued prayers, and I am trusting God for His will in this situation.

Father,

I thank You that You are good and that we can trust You even when things do not turn out the way we would like them to. Help us trust You even when things go bad and You do not do what we want You to do. Help us understand that You know and understand far more than what we understand. And help us remember Your love in sending Your Son to die for us.

In Jesus' Name,
Amen
