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

Peace

Dear Father, you are the Prince of Peace and the great I Am. You are my helper and my redeemer. I need your help today. I am weak and frail and tired. Give me the strength to get through just this day and the desire to work as if I am doing it all for your glory. Help those who are carrying especially heavy burdens right now. They need your power and peace that goes beyond our understanding. I am so grateful that I can come to you and present my requests at any time. Thank you for giving me peace and rest even in the hard times. In the name of the Prince of Peace, I pray, Amen


"Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:6-7

MAKER AND HEALER

 Jeremiah 17:14  "Heal me, O Lord, and I will be healed;  save me and I will be saved, for You are the one I praise."

Lord, you are more than my Maker.  You are also my Healer and my Savior.  My life is secure from both the powers of darkness and the judgement of You hand.  You are, indeed, everything to me: health and salvation, hope and sustenance, wholeness and strength.  I lift grateful praise to You from a heart of growing faith.  I love You.  Amen.

Comforting Others




2 Corinthians 1:3-4 (NLT)
     3 All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is our merciful Father and the source of all comfort. 4 He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us.

Father one of the ways you use us to comfort and encourage others is to share with them what you have done for us. By sharing our vulnerability, losses, and grief we can identify with those going through very difficult and even dark days.

Father help us to be sensitive, compassionate and honest as we endeavor to comfort others as you have comforted us. May they feel your loving presence, experience your peace and receive the strength of your grace. May they know they are not alone and that above all others you are with them. May they understand that you are the God of all hope and that their future is secure in your hands. May they know the truth and reality of the song: “Through It All” by Andrae Crough.

I’ve had many tears and sorrows,
I’ve had questions for tomorrow,
there’s been times I didn’t know right from wrong.
But in every situation,
God gave me blessed consolation,
that my trials come to only make me strong.

Through it all,
through it all,
I’ve learned to trust in Jesus,
I’ve learned to trust in God.

Through it all,
through it all,
I’ve learned to depend upon His Word.

I thank God for the mountains,
and I thank Him for the valleys,
I thank Him for the storms He brought me through.
For if I’d never had a problem,
I wouldn’t know God could solve them,
I’d never know what faith in God could do.

Thanks be to God, our merciful Father and the source of all comfort, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Committed to Christ

Merciful Lord,

We think of the great story of grace that You have revealed to us in Christ, and we give ourselves again to You. Teach us how to be Your people, not as imitators of the world, but as members of one another within the glorious body of Christ. Grant us genuine love for one another and true goodness and affection. Teach us to serve You with energy and gladness in accord with the calling You have given each of us. Teach us to live in this world by the power of Your Son as those who are committed to goodness and love.

Help us to guard carefully the gift You have entrusted to us and live a life worthy of our calling. Amen

Day by Day

The words to this Godspell chorus seems especially appropriate for me today ...

Day by day
Oh Dear Lord
Three things I pray
To see thee more clearly
Love thee more dearly
Follow thee more nearly
Day by day

Open the eyes of my heart Lord that I might see you more clearly.

Dealing with Guilt

I am convinced that one of that biggest thing many people struggle with, including Christians, is guilt. I would like to pray that God will break the chains of guilt for all who are bound by them.

Father,

I pray that we might put our faith in You and trust You for forgiveness of all we have done wrong. That You would help us to change if we need to change. And help us recognize it, if we we are carrying  guilt unnecessarily over things where we have done no wrong. But that we would be able to put our guilt behind us and go forward in Your forgiveness. We cannot do this, I cannot do this, on our own. Strengthen us to remember the cry of your Son, "It is finished." And to live by that.

In Jesus Name,
Amen
