God's Grace and Healing


Dear Lord ~ today I saw a miracle, and I want to thank you.  A family member was facing stage 4 cancer, and with your love and grace and the skills you give doctors, and your will that our cousin is now cancer free and will have some more time on this earth with his family, we thank you.

We never know from day to day what it will bring.  I want to thank you for a second miracle.  Our dear friend that had a stroke a couple of weeks ago, went home today.  His complete recovery will take some time, but you are with him every step of the way. 
Our hearts are full of thankfulness today for answers to our prayers for these two.  

Lord be with all those who have loved ones fighting cancer, strokes and all kinds of sickness.  Bring comfort and healing.   I love you.  Amen.

LET ME STAND ~




Dear Lord ~ Let me stand today ~
for whatever is pure and true and just and good.
for the right of the weak and the oppressed.

Today O Lord ~
let me put right before interest.
let me put others before self.
let me put things of the spirit before the things of the flesh.
let me put principle above reputation.
let me put Thee before all else.

Give me a heart like Jesus Christ ~ a brave heart, a true heart, a tender heart, a heart with a great room in it, a heart fixed on Thyself, for your name's sake.  Amen.

First Love

Ephesians 1:15 (NLT)
  Ever since I first heard of your strong faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for God’s people everywhere,


Revelation 2:4 (NLT)
   “But I have this complaint against you. You don’t love me or each other as you did at first!

Father how is it that in a mere 35 years there could be such a change from when Paul wrote to the Ephesian Church of “your love for God’s people” to the startling  words of Jesus to the same Church “You don’t love me or each other as you did….!” How could such a heart on fire for Jesus become the ashes of indifference and worse, a cold heart?

Yet, did not Jesus warn us: “Sin will be rampant everywhere, and the love of many will grow cold.”  Matthew 24:12 (NLT)

Father I pray that none of us will ever be part of the many who have forgotten and forsaken the ecstasy of our first experience of your love for us and our love for you. This love does not grow old or cold in hearts that are stirred with fire of your presence. It is the love spoken of in 1 Corinthians 13:7 (NLT)Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.”

Loving Father help us to so love You and each other!!!

Revive what has died in me ...

Dear God,

Enlighten what is dark in me.
Strengthen what is weak in me.
Mend what is broken in me.
Bind what is bruised in me.
Heal what I sick in me.

And lastly, revive whatever peace and love has died in me.

Amen.

THE WIND OF YOUR SPIRIT



Almighty God, send the wind of Your Spirit to blow across the embers of my heart.  Stir up the fire of faith and re-ignite my passion for holiness.  Kindle within me a desire to use the spiritual gifts You have given me for the good of Your kingdom.  May Your Spirit shine forth in power.  May that power be governed by self-discipline, and may all I do be done in the love of God.  I love You. Amen.

PEACE

Psalm 122:6-8 (NLT)
   6  Pray for peace in Jerusalem. May all who love this city prosper.7 O Jerusalem, may there be peace within your walls and prosperity in your palaces. 8 For the sake of my family and friends, I will say, “May you have peace.”


Father from this passage it seems like world peace begins in and with Jerusalem.  It is almost stunning how such a small piece of the world’s geography can so epitomize the global struggle for peace. War is such a part of inward conflict and outward confrontation. Throughout history it appears the human race has learned little about how to live in peace.

Yet, Jesus, you remind us of where true peace comes from and it’s transforming power.  “I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid.”  John 14:27 (NLT)
And again Father your word reminds us that the  “…… experience God’s peace, …...exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:7 (NLT)

Thank you Father for your peace that settles our hearts in an unsettled world, and for its’ calming influence on our minds in times of uncertainty.
Amen
