Father we pray for those in the path of the storms. We pray for protection and for wisdom. We pray that you would strengthen and comfort them, and that you would bring healing and restoration where it is needed. We pray that your Church would rise up to love your love to those in need because of these storms. Amen

"Our prayers lay the track down by which God's power can come.  Like a mighty locomotive, his power is irresistible, but it cannot reach us without rails."  Watchman Nee (1903-1972)

Every soul we long to reach,
Every heart we hope to reach.
Everywhere we share His peace,
Is only by His grace.

Every loving word we say.
Every tear we wipe away.
Every sorrow turned to praise
Is only by His grace.

Grace alone
Which God supplies,
Strength unknown
He will provide,
Christ is us
Our Cornerstone,
We will go forth in grace alone.

Grace Alone ~ Scott Wesley Brown & Jeff Nelson (1998)

wait patiently

"Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for Him"
(Psalm 37:7)

Faith often requires patience. God uses this time of waiting to build us up in our dependence upon Him, our trust in His Sovereignty and our steadfastness in the Truth of His Word. We choose to place our lives in His hands and trust that what He purposes for us is right. We need to learn to sit still before Him and pour out our hearts to Him and then wait for Him to move. He is so good.

"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest..."  Matthew 11:28

This morning my heart is heavy and I'm dealing with a burden that will take only the grace of God to lift. 

Dear Lord, I bow low before you asking that you will deal graciously with me and show me how to deal with this heavy burden.  I ask that all involved can have your healing grace.  You are the only one who can lift burdens and heal hearts.  I love you and I'm trusting You and Only You for the answers.  Amen.

Praying Psalm 19

The heavens declare your glory O God, and the sky above proclaims your handiwork. I praise you for the wonders of your creation.. words cannot express the awe I feel when I ponder the beauty of a rose.. you do all things well.

Your words are perfect O Lord.. they revive my soul.. your testimony is trustworthy.. it is perfect.. it gives wisdom to the simple.. your precepts are right.. they make my heart rejoice because they are pure.

The fear of the Lord is clean.. and cleansing to my soul.. you are awesome forever O Lord!

Your rules are true and righteous altogether. They are more to be desired are they than gold, even much fine gold; sweeter also than honey and drippings of the honeycomb. Moreover, by them is your servant warned; in keeping them there is great reward.

Who can discern his errors? Declare me innocent from hidden faults and keep me from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me! Then I shall be blameless, and innocent of great transgression.

Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer.

Prayer for Friends

Dear Lord God,
Thank you for autumn, the golden time of year. I am blessed by the sights, sounds, and smells of this glorious season.
Today I bring my friends E and R before your throne and pray your grace and mercy over their lives. I pray strength and healing for E, protection over her life, and clarity of thought and actions. I ask strength and encouragement for her mother R as she continues to watch her daughter struggle through life. Please, Father, wrap Your loving arms around my friends this night and grant them peace.

what is prayer?

"The value of persistent prayer is NOT that God
will hear us, but that we will finally hear God" 
--W. McGill

What is prayer? 

It is our amazing gift for communication with the Lord.
It is the way we can be "face-to-face" with our God. 

It is a privilege. It is powerful. 

Prayer time should be filled with passion and sweet anticipation of hearing Him speak.

We should long to enter into the sacredness of prayer with our Savior. It should compel us to fall on our faces before Him in humility seeking to commune with the Creator of all.

Prayer.  Our time to just bask in the presence of Jesus. What an honor. What an unbelievable and precious gift He has given us. 

Oh, Lord, help us to never take for granted the amazing and wonderful power and privilege of prayer. Help us to seek your face daily so we can listen to what you have to say to us. You are the best and so worthy of our time. May we reverence you with all the honor that is so due you.

Prayers for Safety

When this prayer is published, my dearest and I will be in Idaho visiting with a cousin.  Anytime we travel, and this year we have done more than any other time in one year, we always say prayer for safety and God's will in our travels.

We took care of Don's Aunt for 8 months before she passed away, and her daughter and sil have sent us tickets to Idaho to visit them.

Dear Lord, I know we are not the only people traveling this week, so many in so many places, near or far away.  Lord we pray for your guardian angels to wrap their wings around us and keep us safe.  We know that nothing can touch us without first going through your divine filter, so Lord, we pray that in You will we will be accepting of anything you allow.  Father, thank you that last week, you protected me in my "fender bender" and also the other lady involved in the mishap.  You are Good, You are Gracious, You are Holy!  I love you.  Amen.

prayer of faith.

"And the prayer of FAITH shall save
the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up;
if he have committed sins, they shall
be forgiven Him"
(James 5:15)

Dear Father of mankind, make me the human channel, so far as in me lies, through which Thy divine love and pity may reach he hearts and lives of a few of those who are nearest to me.

Lord, today I would remember before Thee all my human brothers and sisters who need Thy help.  Especially this morning I think
of those who are faced by great temptations;
of those who are faced by tasks too great for their powers;
of those who stand in any valley of decision;
of those who are in debt or poverty;
of those who are suffering the consequences of misdeeds long ago repented of;
of those who, by reason of early surroundings, have never had a fair chance in life;
of all the family circles broken by death;
of all missionaries of the Kingdom of Heaven in faraway corners of the earth;
of those who lift high the lamp of truth in lonely places;

Hear our prayer dear Father, Hear our prayer.   We love you.  Amen

Monday Prayer

Abba, it's Monday. Another weekend has come and gone, and another work week has begun. Some of us are refreshed, some are weary. Some look forward to the week ahead, while others face it with dread. There are those who feel your presence and blessing, and there are those who wonder where you are. Bless each one of us where we are. Lift us up, encourage us, and strengthen our faith as we face what lies ahead of us. Amen
