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

Be still...



Oh my friends, take time today to just be still before Him. Sit at His feet and linger in His Presence. Listen to His voice. Pour out your spirit to Him. Bask in the depths of His goodness. Just be still. And know that He is God.


Amen

a prayer for things to be made right



Lord God,

Maker of all things... Creator of Heaven and earth... Lord, you are God. You make all things grow, all things beautiful, and all things new.

Yet, we hurt, Lord. We are hurting as we see families torn apart. We are hurting as we see good work stunted, beautiful things broken, and the truth of Your Word being misused by many. Our hearts ache, Lord, for what we know isn't right. Sin has broken our relationship with You and our relationships with this world. Have mercy on us, forgive our sinfulness, and transform us to be more like Jesus.

Help us to bring peace to this broken world. Help us be instruments of Your love and grace. For all that is wrong will be made right, Father, and help us to to push back the affects of sin and make this world shine in the light of Your glory.

Amen

God our Father,
in your wisdom and love you made all things.
Bless those fathers who have taken upon themselves, the responsibility of parenting.
Bless those who have lost a spouse to death ... or divorce

Strengthen them by your love that they may be and become
the loving, caring persons they are meant to be.
Grant this through Christ our Lord. Amen

FATHER






   “Honor your father ……..”
Exodus 20:12 (NIV)


Dear heavenly Father, Father’s Day finds my heart stirred with thoughts of my Dad, raised in the country, a child of the great depression who lived through many difficult days. And though his years were few, just 52, he loved his family and worked hard to provide for us. My memories of him are limited for I only knew him for 12 years before our home was broken through the stress of irreconcilable human relationship that often leads to despair and divorce.

Yet, he was my father, I bear his name and image. Some of his traits and disposition are mine. And though I did not know him well here, we will get far better acquainted in heaven where all things will be made new and infinitely better. So Father, I thank You for my Dad, and want to honor him with an expression of my love and respect that will find its full bloom in heaven and our anticipated joyful reunion.

Amen

Living in the Light

Lord, thank You that You are Light and in You there is no darkness. As I walk with You I don't have to be afraid of the dark. Even in the darkest night, You are there. In the scary, dark places, You have treasures for me, which shine even brighter against the darkness. As I go through those times, Your presence and grace comfort and bring light to my soul. As I trust in You and follow You, may your glorious light shine on me to see me through. In Jesus name I pray, Amen

Help us Lord to reign in our egos.

Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven. [Matthew 5:16]

Take heed that you do not do your charitable deeds before men, to be seen by them. Otherwise you have no reward from your Father in heaven. [Matthew 6:1]


These verses may seem to be at odds with each but they are not. They both deal with motivation. The first is about glorifying God while the second is glorifying ourselves.

Help us Lord to reign in our egos.
Teach us Lord to be aware of why we do good things.
Let the message of our lives be all about shining our lights for you.

We pray that our lives would be loving and ones that bring you glory.
Help us to embrace a love for others that is unconditional and divinely exalting.
In all of our ways. In all of our days. Help us to be like you.

Amen
