UNCLEAN ~ UNCLEAN




Can you imagine the pain and suffering of bleeding for twelve years.  And more than the pain and suffering, but her whole income spent on doctors to no avail.   But probably the worst, was to be considered "unclean" for twelve years.  Not able to go to the Temple to pray for hear the teachers of the Word.  She was an outcast, poor and alone!.

She heard about a Prophet named Jesus who was healing the lame, the blind and demon possessed.  She longed to meet Him to have him heal her.  But the crowds, they pushed and shoved as they followed him to the house of a ruler who's daughter had died.   She thought if only I could tough the edge of his cloak, I will be healed.  She pushed forward keeping her face covered with her shawl.  Then she was behind him.  Did she dare!!   Reaching out, she did the unthinkable...she touched the hem of his cloak and immediately felt the bleeding stop!!   Jesus turned and saw her.  "Take heart, daughter.  Your faith has healed you."

This is the only recorded time that Jesus called a woman "daughter".  What a blessing and honor to be called the daughter of God.

Oh Lord, I don't have a clue to that kind of suffering.  But I know you are gracious, loving and full of mercy and when someone reaches out in faith and touches you....you come to them.  You receive them.  Thank you for this woman and the message she shares with us.  Help me to have that kind of faith in the midst of suffering and pain.  I love You.  Amen

we give you our discontent

Oh God, today we give you our discontent,
we give you our restlessness,
and we give you our despair.

Help us to be renewed in your abounding love,
to cling to your wisdom,
and to do the work that needs to be done.

Amen.

a brokenhearted prayer

God, you care deeply for brokenhearted people.
This is a promise you make: You are close.
We pray for all those who are crippled by broken relationships.

Our hearts take the blow of disappointment.
We feel crushed because our hopes are dashed.
God, heal broken hearts.

We cannot fix our own wounds. But you can.

If pieces of our heart have been lost, or are held captive by another,
recover them and bring them back to us and miraculously “put us back together”
so that our heart is whole again.

You are a mender of broken hearts.
We ask for this miracle,
in the name of Jesus. Amen.

spreading a heavenly fragrance

Dear Jesus, help me to spread Thy fragrance everywhere I go. Flood my soul with Thy spirit and love. Penetrate and possess my whole being so utterly that all my life may only be a radiance of Thine. Shine through me and be so in me that every soul I come in contact with may feel Thy presence in my soul. Let them look up and see no longer me but only Jesus. Stay with me and then I shall begin to shine as you shine, so to shine as to be a light to others.

I love this prayer credited to Mother Teresa of Calcutta. Can you relate to wanting to spread His fragrance everywhere you go and desiring Him to shine through you?

Pray this prayer with me and join me in saying amen to it.

when all is darkness

O Christ Jesus,
when all is darkness
and we feel our weakness and helplessness,
give us the sense of Your presence,
Your love, and Your strength.

Help us to have perfect trust
in Your protecting love
and strengthening power,
so that nothing may frighten or worry us,
for, living close to You,
we shall see Your hand,
Your purpose, Your will through all things.

Amen

prayers for passages

June is a time of passages. Young adults graduate and some marry in this month. Many take some time off and vacation in far off places. So, in this month of passages, I thought that it would be a good idea to intercede for these. Please join me in prayer.

For those who have remained faithful to their studies and worked with diligence in hope of graduation day we give thanks Lord. We ask that you would guide them and direct them with regard to employment and future studies. Cause them to seek you in prayer as they mature in life. Cause them to grow in grace and wisdom.

For those who will marry we join them in their celebration Lord. We pray that Godly foundations would be laid in their relationships. We ask that you would help them to live responsibly and to not go in debt. Cause marriages all over the world to radiate your love and husbands and wives come together in prayer.

For those who will take time off this summer we pray that their vacations will not be tiring but will be times of refreshing. We ask that you watch over families as they travel and keep them safe. Cause families to heal and come together in love as they spend time traveling and enjoying life. Help to create precious memories.

Amen

a prayer of commitment

Lord, I commit my failures
as well as my successes
into your hands,
and I bring for your healing
the people and the situations,
the wrongs and the hurts
of the past.
Give me courage, strength and generosity
to let go and move on,
leaving the past behind me,
and living the present to the full.
Lead me always to be positive
as I entrust the past to your mercy,
the present to your love,
and the future to your providence’.
Amen

for peace among the nations

O Almighty God,
the Father of all humanity,
turn, we pray, the hearts of all peoples and their rulers,
that by the power of your Holy Spirit
peace may be established among the nations
on the foundation of justice, righteousness and truth;
through him who was lifted up on the cross
to draw all people to himself,
your Son Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen.

a prayer for love, peace and hope

These thoughts from the late Martin Luther King Jr. inspire me to pray..
Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into friend.

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.

Peace is not merely a distant goal that we seek, but a means by which we arrive at that goal.
Forgive us dear Lord for walking in darkness. We ask you Father to fill us today with love that transforms us. Love that drives out hate. Loves that sheds light on our dark ways.

We desire dear Lord to be agents of reconciliation and hope. Fill us with peace and cause us to pursue peace with those who are different from us. Help us to see all people as your children.

Lord fill us with hope. We need your hope to replace our cynicism and fatalism. We desire to follow you. We need to be filled today. Cause love, peace and hope to spring fresh from our hearts today.

And cause us Lord to be people who pray.

Amen
