Anyone who is having troubles should pray. ... When a believing person prays, great things happen. -James 5:13,16 NCV

for those who preach without words

Lord Jesus, bless all who serve us,
who have dedicated their lives to the ministry of others:

All the teachers of our schools who labor so patiently with so little appreciation;

All who wait upon the public, the clerks in the stores who have to accept criticism, complaints, bad manners, selfishness at the hands of a thoughtless public.
Bless the mailmen, the drivers of streetcars and buses who must listen to people who lose their tempers.

Bless every humble soul who, in these days of stress and strain, preaches sermons without words.

Amen.

Prayer in any language....

So thankful that when we lift our voices to God, He hears our prayers. It doesn't matter what language we are speaking, He knows. The Holy Spirit knows.

The words we utter are simply our words... The power of those spoken words comes from our God. The Spirit of God within us will resonate with the Spirit of God in those we pray for.

There is no need for interpretation.... no need for explanation..... the only need is a heart of trust, belief and faith in the One who is Healer of all.....

Thank you Jesus for the faith of this Nicaraguan man who requested prayer yesterday.... May he be healed and restored in Jesus Name.....

"The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective." James 5:16

Decisions

Sometimes things would be easier if I were not given a choice.  I have been told that there are only three types of chemo-therapy that work for my type of cancer, and they have all proved inadequately effective in dealing with it. This leaves me with two choices. I can go off treatment and let nature take its course and trust God to accomplish what He wants to in my life. Or I can try to get on a clinical test in the hopes that it might help. It does not help in all of this that it looks like my wife's cancer may have come back. It would be easier to trust God with one option or the other than to have to choose. But I must choose.

Father,

I pray for all those who face difficult decisions, including me. I pray that You will give us wisdom to know which decision to make. I pray that we may approach the issue with calmness and trust in You. I pray that we may not be stampeded one way or the other out of fear. And I pray that whatever decision we make, You will overrule and work things for our best.

In Jesus' Name, 
Amen

PRAYER FOR FATHERS




 Howard Dill ~ my father (me on the right)

Dear Father, You are the perfect father, our Heavenly Father.  You are the model.  However in our fallen world, not everyone has experienced a good or wonderful father.  Today we pray for those, that your love and compassion will embrace them, and they can know a loving father by loving You.
For those of us who were so fortunate to have godly fathers, like mine, I thank You.  He was human, he was flawed, but he loved me deeply and was devoted to You.

Today we celebrate and pray for all Fathers, everywhere.

 

Amen

Praying for You


Romans 15:13 (NLT)
     13 I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit.

The Apostle Paul’s prays for the Christians in Rome, and really for Christians everywhere, that in their hardships, difficulties and challenges of living for Christ they will experience the joy, peace and hope only Christ can give. And this comes as a result of their trust in God and the power of the Holy Spirit at work in their life.

I pray dear friends and fellow believers that you also “will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit.” That the joy and peace of God will sustain you in your daily walk with Him.

Jeremiah 17:7-8 (NLT)
     7 “But blessed are those who trust in the LORD and have made the LORD their hope and confidence. 8 They are like trees planted along a riverbank, with roots that reach deep into the water. Such trees are not bothered by the heat or worried by long months of drought. Their leaves stay green, and they never stop producing fruit.

God bless you in the name of Him who gives us abundant and eternal life, Jesus our Lord. 

Amen

Be Still

Be still and know that I am God. -Psalm 46:10

I do and do
and strive and strive
and try to figure things out,
forgetting that life
was meant to be lived
in reliance on you.

Help me to still my body
and my mind
so that I can rest
in your presence,
so that I can know again
that you are God.

Amen
