Hello, Friends! Here is the prayer for today…

Dear Heavenly Father,

As we gather together we ask that you would help us to shift our perspective and focus from the visible and ordinary, to the invisible and extraordinary. All around us are signs of your nearness…of your help…of your faithfulness…but too often we focus on our problems and needs, instead of on what you might be trying to teach us or show us in the midst of our struggles…we ask for your wisdom, knowledge and discernment…we want to be constantly aware that there is a bigger picture of our lives…you promise to meet our needs, but you have always made it known that you see things differently than us…you know there is so much more going on beyond what we can see…you care more about the eternal than the temporary…the Bible gives examples of how you shifted the focus of people and helped them to see beyond what was in front of them…you allowed Balaam to see the angel that had stopped his donkey…you allowed Elisha’s servant to see the chariot’s of fire and angel armies that surrounded them… help us to remember that you are working behind the scenes in each of our lives for a greater good and purpose…help us to remember that our minds can’t even begin to imagine or dream of the things you have in store for us …help us to trust you more and have a deeper faith..

Help us to give you our full attention…help us to not be distracted or too busy to seek you…as we are to train our children in the way they are to go, you are trying to do the same with us…you have left us instructions to help us to deal with feelings of helplessness, hopelessness and despair…you have taught us how to take our thoughts captive by choosing what things to think about…help us make good choices…help us to claim the power that you have given us…we do have choices on where we place our focus… on what thoughts we choose… on whose voice we will listen to…who we will trust…who and what we will cling to in times of adversity…help us to choose well, Lord…help us to live our lives with purpose and to be intentional with our thoughts …the enemy wants us to believe that we are helpless and powerless…help us to have a true sense of who we are in you, Lord.

Please help us to live with expectation of your wonder-working power…help us to live what we say we believe…help us to live in the fullness of your joy, power and strength…help us to fix our eyes and heart on you…you are the same miracle-working God you have always been…help us to be faithful followers. We love you, Lord and we thank you in advance for all you will do. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen

Blessings to you friends!

In His love,
Debbie
