Prayer For April 30th

April 30, 2017

Hello, Friends! Here is the prayer for today…

Dear Heavenly Father,

Today we pray for our brothers and sisters around the world who are being persecuted for their faith…we lift up those who cannot pray, worship, or speak your name in public without risk of persecution, jail, or death…please intervene on their behalf …make a way where there seems to be no way for their deliverance…please help us to  not take for granted our freedoms that allow us to worship freely, to gather together with other believers, to own a Bible and to speak your name and praises openly…

Please help us to empty ourselves of things that are not pleasing to you…purge us of things that cloud our vision and judgement…help us to take spiritual inventory to see where we need to change… we often have good intentions, yet we end up not doing what we need to do, and doing what we shouldn’t be doing…we want to spend more time with you…we want to read more…pray more…worship more…serve more… love better… be better …and then the next thing we know, we look back and  see the road littered with good intentions that never became what we had hoped or envisioned…please help us to overcome and persevere and become the men and women you want us to be.

Please help us to let go of the “what ifs”, the “if onlys”, the regrets, the failures, the disappointments, the heartaches and all the things that we can’t change…help us not to waste another day beating ourselves up emotionally, mentally or spiritually…we can’t change the past, but things are not wasted if we can learn from them…help us to extract the lessons from the failures, regrets and pain…help us harvest what we can and let go of the rest so we can make the most of this day and all the days to come…help us to see all we have been through with your eyes…you know what we lack, what will motivate us, what will heal us, how to guide us…we ask for your help to live victoriously, to live confidently as your children, to enjoy the freedom you bought for us, to be full of your peace and aware of our blessings…

Father, help us to make the most of this day and all the days we have left…help us to be still at your feet and find rest in your presence…we surrender all that we are and all that we hope to be and ask for your will to be done. In the name of Jesus we ask these things. Amen

Praying blessings upon you!

Much love in Him,
Debbie

Prayer For April 29th

April 29, 2017

Hello, Friends! I’ve read of many this week who could use this prayer…

Dear Lord,

We have read in your Word, how the Apostle Paul had such affliction and distress that he despaired of life…we  read about despair and pain in the book of Job and all throughout the Psalms and other books of the Bible… Jesus was known as a man of sorrows, well acquainted with grief… when we hurt in this life, we are in good company.

Your word clearly shows that those who served you and followed you  suffered greatly and their lives were not always easy…the Bible clearly shows that difficult trials fall on those who walk with you…the good news is you walk with us… we do not go through these things alone…you strengthen us…you understand…you comfort…you grieve with us and will always redeem these trials…if not in this life, in the one to come…

No matter where we are today, no matter what we are doing…we are called to do everything as unto you…we  are to seek to please you alone…we are to love you and seek to bring glory and honor to you, even in the midst of our pain, in the midst of loss, in the midst of uncertainty and adversity and anything else that touches our lives…good or bad. We know that a day spent serving you, is better than 1,000 pain-free days serving ourselves. You are  The Source of every comfort, consolation and encouragement. You comfort us in every trouble and affliction so we can comfort others with the same comfort you give us.

There will always be people in our lives like Job’s friends…people who don’t understand but speak as though they do… people who are well-intentioned, but still say and do hurtful things… people who judge wrongly…we have no control over what others say or do…but we don’t have to allow those things to destroy our hearts and make us bitter and angry…we can put up healthy boundaries and give you our wounds and pain and allow you to heal us…we can choose whose voice and truth we allow to become our inner voice…these thinks aren’t easy, but we know we can do all things through Christ.

Thank you for going before us and standing beside us in all that we face…help us not to worry about what others think, say and do…help us to do our best and leave everything else in your hands. We are grateful you know the truth in every situation and one day you will make right all the wrongs and we will all be healed and whole and not have to deal with the hard things of this life again. We thank you that we are never alone and your grace sees us through. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen

God bless you friends!

In His love,
Debbie

Prayer For April 28th

April 28, 2017

Hello, Friends! Here is the prayer for today…

Dear Lord,

We thank you for the work you are doing in each of us. At times it’s difficult to see past where we are at in life … sometimes we forget how far we’ve come, because we’re too focused on how far we still have to go to get where we want to be…we are so blessed that you can see what we don’t see…we often have tunnel vision, but you see the   story of our lives from beginning to end…you see our progress and how we are being changed to be more like Jesus…you know every step that is needed to get us to where we need to be…we often forget that you are purifying us as gold and that is not a quick or easy process.  Help us to trust your character and heart when we can’t see your hand or understand what is going on in our lives. 
Help us to bloom where we are planted…show us how to be content where we are until you lead and guide us to the next chapter of our lives…help us to set aside negativity, discouragement, worry, fear and anxious thoughts… help us to take our thoughts captive and to train our minds to shut down thoughts that are unhealthy and unhelpful. Help us to have a spiritually sound mind. Please help us to remember that though at times it seems as if we see things through a dark veil, one day that veil will be lifted and we will see everything clearly…we will understand fully…our minds will be able to grasp all we could not comprehend in this life… one day we will know just how perfect your plans and timing have been since the foundations of the world…

Please go before us today. Please be with our families and friends. Please protect them and watch over them.  Please bless them and meet their every need. We pray for our leaders. We pray for our countries. We pray that those who don’t know you will be saved…we pray for the world to find peace and to find you. We thank you in advance for all you will do. In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen
Blessings, hugs and love to you all!
Debbie

Prayer For April 27th

April 27, 2017

Hello, Friends! I’m feeling led to re-post this prayer today…

Dear Heavenly Father,

We thank you for the way you comfort  and guide us through the hard things in life…the older we get, the harder life seems to get… we face more health challenges…we see those we love decline in their health…we start losing more and more people that we love… we are faced with responsibilities and hard decisions and sometimes  there are no good options, yet we are required to make a choice…

Lord, for everyone who is facing difficult decisions…for those who are being put into hard situations… we ask that they would hear your voice clearly…give them peace and courage…may they feel your comforting presence and may they be assured that you are with them and will continue to be with them in all that lies ahead…may they find support, encouragement and understanding from others…sometimes people just don’t understand what is involved behind the scenes…they don’t have all the facts…they don’t know the things that we know… often they don’t see the pain and heartache that is involved in the decisions and choices that are being made…may everyone who is in that difficult and sometimes lonely place, find your wisdom and comfort… please be their shield  when they are met with rebuke, rejection, anger or silence…

Lord, one day we will see clearly the times we jumped to the wrong conclusions, the times we took things wrong, the times we misunderstood someones intentions…the times our perceptions were clouded by our wounds and pain, depression, guilt, our own life experiences…help us to have more patience, grace, sympathy and empathy towards others…especially if we can’t begin to relate to the things they are dealing with…too often we don’t really understand what others go through until we walk in similar shoes…

Help us to cling to you in difficult times…help us to focus on you and not the opinions of others..may we be people of good character and walk with integrity…help us to have the strength to do the right things even if they are not popular with others…help us to hold our heads high when we are falsely accused, gossiped about or slandered with lies and untruths…help us to be content with the knowledge that you know the truth in all things.


Please meet each of us where we are at today …give us strength for the day…please fill us with your Holy Spirit and comfort us with your words of truth… be our peace and our shelter from the storms…we pray for our families and friends and ask that you draw them close to you and meet their needs…Thank you Lord, for walking beside us in every phase of our lives…how grateful we are to have you as our shepherd who leads us through every challenge, heartache and decision. We love you Lord and ask these things in the name of Jesus. Amen.

Blessings be upon you friends!

Much love in Him,
Debbie

Prayer For April 26th

April 26, 2017

Hello, Friends! Here is the prayer for today…

Dear Heavenly Father,

Today we want to lift up to you all who are in financial need… we ask according to your will for you to open your store houses…just as you gave oil to a widow in need…as you provided manna in the wilderness… as you took a few loaves of bread and a few fish and turned it into more than enough … we are asking for you to extend your grace and mercy upon your children…we pray for open doors, miracles and for the provision that only you can give.

We trust you will answer this humble prayer…we ask that you give each person who has struggled financially, a garment of praise instead of a cloak of  heaviness… we ask that you remove the burdens that weigh them down and we ask that everyone will feel your comfort and peace engulf them as they relinquish their worries and fears. We ask Father, for you to give tangible blessings that will bolster and renew their faith and be a witness to others that you do indeed provide for your children…

Father, we believe that all things are possible through you… we know you allow adversity…you tell us to expect it… and we know that what you allow in our lives, is for our good and your glory… we don’t want to miss out on the fruit that comes from adversity…we don’t want to miss out on the blessings you have planned for us, or the  eternal riches that you bring forth as you refine us in our struggles… but sometimes the struggles are so hard and they last so long and in our humanness, we become discouraged and defeated… we lose hope that things can, or will get better… when one part of the body hurts, we all hurt…we are all affected…and so many are hurting in every way imaginable…we pray for healing….we pray for relief  physically, mentally, emotionally, financially and spiritually. We pray for provision for our needs and for the needs of those we know and love…

We are so very grateful to be your children…we know that you own the cattle on a thousand hills and that everything that has breath is yours…you do not give your children crumbs… you long to give us good gifts…please move among us. We love you, Lord and we ask these things with excited anticipation for what you will do and how you will work. We thank you in advance and we give you all praise, glory and honor. In the name of Jesus we pray, Amen

May you see God move in amazing ways!

In His love,
Debbie

Prayer For April 25th

April 25, 2017

Hello, Friends! Here is the prayer for today…

Dear Lord,

You tell us in your Word that you have a plan for us…a plan to give us  hope and a future… there are many who are reading this prayer who don’t believe that promise is for them…all they see is their life is falling apart…some have been in a dark valley for a very long time and they have given up hope that things will ever get better…may everyone in that place find encouragement in your Word…may they remember all the stories of how you redeemed and restored so many people and situations.

Joseph, through no fault of his own, was betrayed by his brothers, sold as a slave, falsely accused and cast into prison…his life was hard and what happened to him was unfair, but you had a plan for him through those long dark days and years. The enemy thought he had destroyed Joseph at every turn, but Joseph never lost faith. He knew you were with him and before his brothers had their first evil thoughts towards Joseph, you already had a plan in place to redeem all that the enemy had meant to harm him.

Lord, waiting and traveling through dark tunnels and valleys is scary and sometimes very lonely… we can feel rejected, frustrated, angry and undeserving of our circumstances…but just like Joseph and so many others who have gone before us, you use those dark uncertain times to teach us to trust you…you use them to show your power and to remind us that there is nothing that is out of your control. Your timing and ways are perfect. You are standing with each of us now and you are longing to lead us and show us your great and mighty works…we pray for strength for the day…we pray for relief from physical and mental pain…we pray for provision for every need … we ask for your Holy Spirit to speak peace, bring comfort and give rest to each one who is praying with us.

You are so good, kind and loving and you will not fail to answer all who call on you in truth. Please still our hearts and calm our minds and lead us on the narrow road that leads to life and to you. Thank you in advance for all you will do. Help us not to look back with regret, but forward with faith and hope. Help us to live with an attitude of expectancy, believing that you are faithful to keep your promises and word. In Jesus’ name we ask these things, Amen.

May the Lord bless you and the rest of your week!

In His love,
Debbie Kay

Prayer For April 24th

April 24, 2017

Hello, Friends! Here is the prayer for today…

Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank you for another day of life…Lord, please help us to not become bogged down with stress, problems in relationships and misunderstandings. So often someone who is having a bad day will take out their problems on us and then we have a bad day and dwell on all that has happened and then we take it out on someone else in some way…please help us to handle things like Jesus would…help us to love others through the good and bad days…help us to weigh our words before we speak…may our words be full of wisdom, mercy, grace and compassion…

Sometimes, no matter how hard we try to avoid it, conflict is inevitable… sometimes  we have to speak the truth and the other person doesn’t want to hear it or face it…there are times that we try so hard to make our words sound kind, yet despite our best efforts and intentions feelings get hurt, people get mad or take things wrong …relationships become strained and it can be so disheartening when we have tried our best to do the right thing and yet things still ended up a mess…please help us  in our difficult situations and relationships…please do a work and help us resolve the issues that need to be worked out with others…teach us when we need to persist in trying to mend relationships and when we need to walk away…please impart your wisdom and knowledge and let your will be done, not our own…please comfort us when our hearts are heavy…when we miss what was…when we have trouble accepting what is…when we don’t know what the next step to take should be…when we just want to withdraw from others because our heart is tired of being misunderstood and hurt…please heal our wounds and troubled relationships as only you can…

We take comfort knowing that you go before us…you know our heart and intentions…you know the truth of every situation… help us to take responsibility for the things that we can change in our own lives and help us to not take on anything that is not our fault, our responsibility or our problem… We know that you will close doors and open doors… not everyone who comes into our lives is meant to stay permanently…please, work, heal, lead, guide, comfort, renew and restore according to your will and in your timing. In the name of Jesus we ask these things. Amen

May the Lord hear your every prayer friends!

In His love,
Debbie
