HELP



Psalm 121:2 (NLT)
   My help comes from the LORD, who made heaven and earth!


Father, this verse tells me that the extent of help is determined by the source of the help. This enables me to realize that infinite resources are available through the LORD with whom all things are possible. Consequently Father there is no problem to complicated, no need to great and no question to difficult but that you have the ability and resources to handle each one. What a comfort this is when life’s road seems to take the wrong direction.

Father, thank you for your help that intervenes on a daily basis and we can say with the Psalmist: God is our refuge and strength, always ready to help in times of trouble.” Psalm 46:1 (NLT)
Amen

Difficult things...

Oswald Chambers says, 
"Thank God He gives us difficult things to do!"

Our prayer should be for God to give us those things to do that are hard. Those things that are difficult in our eyes. It is during those times that we will experience spiritual growth. It is during those times that God will stretch us and use us. It is during those times our walk becomes perfected to match our talk. So, ask God to give you more than you think you are capable of because He is able. Especially during the difficult things!

"If God is for us, who can be against us?"
(Romans 8:31) KJV

Those in Authority

We are told to pray for those in authority. This is true whether or not we agree with their policies. If they are following the wrong principles, they need our prayers even more.

Father,

I pray for all those in government, whether at the national or local level. I pray You will give them wisdom. I pray You will give them wisdom to do, not just what is expedient, but what is right. I pray they will take into consideration Your will when making their decisions. And I pray they may lead us down the right and best paths.

In Jesus' Name,
Amen

Our Father

Father, thank you that you are a loving Father whose heart is always good toward us. Thank you that we can have confidence that you know the end from the beginning and you are in control of all things. We know that you are working everything for our good and will bring our redemption to its final fulfillment. Amen

DAILY IS THE KEY



Jesus did not say, "Come to me and get it over with."  He said, "If any man would come after me, let him take up his cross daily and follow me."  Daily is the key word.  Our commitment to Christ, however genuine and whole-hearted it may be today, must be renewed tomorrow ... and the day after that ...and the day after that ... until the path comes at last to the river.  ~Louis Cassels 1922-1974)

Dear Lord, daily living for you is sometimes difficult with so many things in life trying to crowd you out.  I pray that I might remember the key to walking with You is DAILY.  Lord, help me to carve out time every day to fellowship with you, read your word and share my deepest secrets.  Give me the daily strength to bear my cross and follow in Your footsteps.  I love You.  Amen.
Amen

WATER


Psalm 42:1-2 (NLT)
   1 As the deer longs for streams of water, so I long for you, O God. 2 I thirst for God, the living God.


Father, we in California are in dire and desperate need of water! Four years of drought have brought devastating conditions which only water can reverse. Yet, as much as we need water for the soil, we have a much greater need of water for the soul. I pray that our physical needs for water will turn our hearts to You to seek the only water that can and will satisfy our souls. May we seriously consider what Jesus said to the woman at the well:  “If you only knew the gift God has for you and who you are speaking to, you would ask me, and I would give you living water.”  John 4:10 (NLT)

Father may we pray with the Psalmist who cried out: ”O God, you are my God; I earnestly search for you. My soul thirsts for you; my whole body longs for you in this parched and weary land where there is no water.” Psalm 63:1 (NLT)


Amen

Light on the Path

Dear Lord,
I am in the valley of decision. I need your strength and wisdom to make the right choice. I pray for Your light to shine on the right path, for the way to be clear so that I would know which direction to travel. I thank you for Your leading up to this point and trust that You will help me to know without a doubt what is Your will.
Thank you, Jesus for your leading.
Amen

Christ is Risen Indeed


Christ is Risen: The world below lies desolate

Christ is Risen: The spirits of evil are fallen

Christ is Risen: The angels of God are rejoicing

Christ is Risen: The tombs of the dead are empty

Christ is Risen indeed from the dead, the first of the sleepers,

Glory and power are his forever and ever

Amen.

What does prayer do?

"I sought the LORD, and He heard me, and delivered me from all my fears." (Psalm 34:4)

What does prayer do?

It brings our spirit into perfect submission to the will of God.
It delivers us from rebellious hearts or critical spirits.
It prepares our hearts to be teachable under God's Authority.
It allows God to freely work with us and in us.
It lifts our burdens.
It calms our souls.

Prayer sanctifies us. It carries us closer to the throne of God. It draws us near to His heart in relationship.

Prayer is our lifeline. We will never cry out that our God doesn't hear us and respond.

Thank you, LORD, for hearing our cries. Thank you for caring about even the smallest detail about us. Thank you for loving us and responding to our petition. Help us to see the importance of prayer in our lives and never take for granted our ability to commune with you at any time, day or night. 


Amen

Resurrection Life

Do you look like someone who has been raised up with Christ? Do I? We are told that those who put their faith in Christ are raised up to newness of life. The one thing that is clear to me is that this is not something we work up. This is something we get from God. So in the wake of Easter and the resurrection, I would like to ask for more of the manifestation of that life in us.

Father,

Give us that power of resurrected life. Work in us to change us. Help us to rely on You and Your power, rather than our feeble abilities. Help us to remember that all power to follow You comes from Your Son.

In Jesus' Name,
Amen
