Peace


Philippians 4:6-7 (NLT)
     6 Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. 7 Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.
.

Father in these stressful times, when so much uncertainty grips our minds, I thank you for the peace you make available to us. Your peace is stronger than our fears, and greater than our finite understanding. Your peace is more comforting than any anxiety that may attempt to assail our faith. You guard our hearts and minds with the security of your wisdom and the power of your love. You say to us “fear not” and so we will not fear because of our trust in Your Word.

Thank you Father that through Your Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, we can relax in a restless world. It is truly the peace that passes all understanding.

Amen

Praise and Thanksgiving

I love this prayer. 

O My God,
You fairest, greatest, first of all objects,
My heart admires, adores, loves You,
For my little vessel is as full as it can be,
And I would pour out all that fullness before You in ceaseless flow.
When I think upon and converse with You
Ten thousand delightful thoughts spring up,
Ten thousand sources of pleasure are unsealed,
Ten thousand refreshing joys spread over my heart,
Crowding into every moment of happiness.
I bless You for the soul You have created,
For adorning it, for sanctifying it,
Though it is fixed in barren soil;
For the body You have given me,
For preserving its strength and vigor,
For providing senses to enjoy delights,
For the ease and freedom of limbs,
For hands, eyes, ears that do Your bidding;
For Your royal bounty providing my daily support,
For a full table and overflowing cup,
For appetite, taste, sweetness,
For social joys of relatives and friends,
For ability to serve others,
For a heart that feels sorrows and necessities,
For a mind to care for my fellow-men,
For opportunities of spreading happiness around,
For loved ones in the joys of heaven,
For my own expectation of seeing You clearly.
I love You above the powers of language to express,
For what You are to Your creatures.
Increase my love, O my God, through time and eternity.
Amen

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
