His Gift of Joy

My prayer today is that the God of Hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with joy by the power of the Holy Spirit. Father, there is no real or lasting joy apart from the truth that is found in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. You have blessed us with Your love, grace and truth in Him to bring us everlasting life. Every promise You have made will endure and come to pass. You are GOOD and I will praise Your Great Name forever. Amen

Christmas Prayer for the Troops and their Families

Christmas is a time to be with family and friends. This year some are serving our country overseas and are not with the ones that they love. We ask you Lord to surround those in the military with the presence of loving comrades and times when they can decompress from the stress of combat. We ask you to reveal yourself to those who are lonely and depressed. Help them to embrace the hope of the Babe in the Manger.

For those who worry about their soldier overseas, give them a peace that passes understanding. Help them to find constructive ways to deal with the stress of this situation. And for our governmental leaders, both friendly and not, help them to see past their fears and anger and embrace the One who is called Love. We ask you Lord to bring a lasting peace to the World Lord that your kingdom might come and you will be done. In the name of the Christmas Baby.

Amen

Abundant peace

I would imagine there isn’t anyone reading this that couldn’t use a little more peace in their life. Abundant peace. Strengthening peace. The peace that only comes from our Father in heaven.

Nothing gives us a better promise of this than the Holy Word of God.

“Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you.  I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.” (Isaiah 41:10)

The promises in that amazing verse are mighty and powerful and comforting.

We don’t have to be afraid.

He is with us.

We don’t have to be discouraged.

He is our God.

He will strengthen.

He will hold us up.

He is our Victory.

What a treasure these inspired words of God are. We can take those promises to the spiritual bank. They are truth. They are life. They bring us abundant peace and eternal comfort.

Thank you LORD for your promise of a life filled with peace in abundance from your powerful and mighty and Holy hand.



Amen

From the Cradle to the Cross


Dear Lord Jesus,

I cannot comprehend that You, the Creator of the universe, took on flesh and were born of a peasant girl. You, the One who spoke galaxies into existence became a speechless newborn baby. You, the One who gave the stars their light, veiled Your own glory and slipped unnoticed into the human race. You, the One who clothed all of nature in its boundless beauty and order, came to us wrapped in rags and lying in a feeding trough. The miracle of Your incarnation is all too unexpected, too mysterious, too holy for me to understand. I can only follow the shepherds to the manger and bow in astonishment and thanksgiving, glorifying and praising You for all that I have heard and seen. How my heart loves you my Lord and Savior. Amen!

Life’s Greatest Accomplishment



   "Well done, my good servant!' his master replied.”
Luke 19:17 (NIV)

Father, I cannot imagine a greater greeting or affirmation than to hear from you: ”Well done.” It is truly life’s greatest accomplishment. The Apostle Paul reminds us: “And we pray this in order that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and may please him in every way....” Colossians 1:10 (NIV)

And Father you remind and encourage us to pray for all people, including our leaders. 1 Timothy 2:1-3 (NLT)
      "I urge you, first of all, to pray for all people. Ask God to help them; intercede on their behalf, and give thanks for them. 2 Pray this way for kings and all who are in authority ….. 3 This is good and pleases God our Savior," 

So, Father, I’d like to give a prayer of thanks for George H.W. Bush, 41st president of the United States. In his passing and memorial service we have been reminded of the nobility of service to God and Country. The value of humility and seeking the welfare of others above our own. The love of family and friends with its endearing and enduring influence. Father, we were refreshed and somewhat renewed by the civility, community and compassion that came from various sections of our society.

George H.W. Bush’s tears encourage us to be touched with the afflictions of those who suffer. His laughter tells us not to always take life too seriously, and his ambition stirs us to realize there are more good deeds to be done. His funeral was a great moment for America, be a good citizen. A great message from God, love and forgive people. A great motto, have faith in God. Surely Father the one thing that unites us is faith in you. After all we are “One Nation Under God.” Father you remind us:  “Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD,” Psalm 33:12 (ESV)

So we thank you Father for this man, this servant, this president. And as the Senate Chaplain Barry Black closed his prayer at the Capital Ceremony: “We pray in the name of George Herbert Walker Bush’s Savior and Friend Jesus Christ, Amen.

Our Living Hope ... Our Savior

"Praise be to the God and Father of our LORD Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead," (1 Peter 1:3)

I praise You today and give thanks because You heard the groaning of Your people under our burden of sin. You came to set us free and I thank You that You have drawn us to Your Son, Jesus, whom You sent to bring salvation. Amen

"And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent his Son to be the Savior of the world."
1 John 4:14 NIV  "For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost." Luke 19:10 (NIV)
