Anyone who is having troubles should pray. ... When a believing person prays, great things happen. -James 5:13,16 NCV
Father, thank you that you hear the groanings of our heart when we can't express our prayers in words, or even when we don't feel like praying. Holy Spirit, thank you for your help in our infirmities when we can't even groan. Help us to trust you. Amen

"One good deed is worthy more than a thousand brilliant theories.  Don't wait for greater opportunities for a different kind of work.  Just do the things you find to do day by day.

Do it promptly.  Don't waste your life thinking about what you intend to do tomorrow.  No one ever served God by doing things tomorrow.  If we honor Christ and are blessed, it is with the things we do today."  Charles Hadden Spurgeon (1834-1892)

Lord, give me an opportunity today, to do a good deed, to share your love, to right a wrong, to lift some one up.  Let me seize the opportunity was gusto for YOU!  Amen

That We might be of one Heart and Mind with God


I'm praying not only for them
But also for those who will believe in me
Because of them and their witness about me.
The goal is for all of them to become one heart and mind—
Just as you, Father, are in me and I in you,
So they might be one heart and mind with us.
Then the world might believe that you, in fact, sent me.
Amen

no such thing as impossible with God

We are so blessed that we serve a God who can do the impossible. We serve a God who IS the impossible! He heals, He restores, He calms and He comforts. There is nothing that is beyond His control. There is nothing that He can't do. We can face any situation because we know that our precious Lord will be right there with us. He is our everything. 

"For with God nothing shall 
be impossible"
(Luke 1:37)

~~~

'And Jesus, looking upon them saith,
'With men, it is impossible, but
not with God; for with God 
all things are possible"'
(Mark 10:27)

Come Holy Spirit. Come in power. Come in comfort. Come in wisdom. Come in healing.
Be present dear Lord in the lives of those 59 people who were injured. Manifest yourself to the families and friends of those 12 who were killed. Let faith and not fear rule the day. Please trump this evil with good. Bring your children together in love and unity. Help this community to heal.

Father, help us to focus on you. Keep our attention on what you say to us, and shut our ears to the voices calling us to pride and self. Keep us mindful that we are totally dependent on you. Amen

prayer is dependent upon our faith

"Anyone who comes to Him must believe that
He exists and that He rewards those who
earnestly seek Him"
(Hebrews 11:6)
~~~~

Prayer is totally dependent upon our Faith. Prayer will accomplish nothing unless it is directly attached to faith. It is what makes prayer effective and is an absolute prerequisite in our prayer lives. 

Our faith needs to begin working even before we give voice to our prayers. The Word tells us that when we come to Him we must come believing and that when we acknowledge His existence and His power, then He rewards those who seek Him with their whole heart. He rewards those who seek His face.

If we want to receive from God, we must ask believing that we will get it! We must ask with proper motives in our hearts. We must ask knowing that He is the only ONE who can supply our needs. But we must ask with the foreknowledge of His existence and Sovereignty in our hearts. 

Precious Father, we know that without FAITH our prayers are without effect. Help us, Oh, Lord, to put our prayers into action by standing firm in our Faith in you. We give you praise and glory and honor.


Amen

Mark 10:28 ~
Peter said to him, "We have left everything to follow you!"

Today I want to dedicate these prayers to Missionaries around the World and at Home that are on the "Front Lines" every day for the sake of the Good News.

Lord, I honor Your faithful messengers who offered themselves a living sacrifices to You.  They abandoned dignity, renounced comfort and relinquished possessions to go forth and cry redemption to the lost.  Give me that heart, Lord. I come to the Cross and by faith declare myself crucified with Christ and alive unto God, ready to worship and serve You with my life.  Amen

"World Christians are tramps for the Lord who have left their hiding places to roam the Gap with the Savior.  They are heaven's expatriates, camping where the kingdom is best served.  They are earth's dispossessed, who have journeyed forth to give a dying world not only the gospel but their own souls as well.  They are members of God's global dispersion down through history and out through the nations, reaching the unreached and blessing the families of the earth"  ~~Corrie ten Boon (1892-1983)

A prayer of St. John of the Cross

O Living Flame of Love.

How gently and lovingly
you wake in my heart,
where in secret you dwell alone;
and in your sweet breathing,
filled with good and glory,
how tenderly you swell my heart
with love.

Amen

Aubrey

Dear Lord,

Sunday is my little granddaughter's first birthday. We are not invited. Though it makes me cry, it doesn't take me totally off guard. I already knew deep inside before her mommy told me, so Lord, please be near this sweet child as she celebrates her big day. Please be near her as she grows, keep her heart soft, and let her know somehow that even though we aren't a big part of her life right now, we love her very much. And please, Lord, could you have her mommy bring her and her big brothers over to visit sometime soon? Thanks.

Amen
