Prayer For May 17th

May 17, 2018

Hello, Friends! Here is the prayer for today…

Dear Heavenly Father,

We are grateful for the comfort you give us in our times of sorrow and adversity…you are the God of all comfort…the God of compassion…our tears are precious to you…the molecular structure of our tears changes depending on if we shed happy tears, tears of sorrow or even when crying from an onion…our tears contain our DNA… the tears we shed are as unique as our fingerprints…what amazing detail you have gone to in creating us… your Word says you keep track of our tears and you collect them…everything that we go through matters so much to you that you take note of it and one day you will redeem every tear we’ve shed…you will right every wrong, expose all that has been hidden and convert our tears to joy…

Many have been taught that their tears are something to be ashamed of…that they are a sign of weakness…but Jesus was a man of sorrows who was well acquainted with grief. He wept… He understands what we deal with and all we go through…He understands our pain, feelings and emotions like no one else does…

We thank you for your great love for us…we thank you for your promise to be near to the brokenhearted and to comfort all who mourn…we are grateful that even though we grieve in this life, we can grieve with hope… we look forward to that day when there will be no more death, suffering, sin or pain… we look forward with hopeful anticipation to that day when we will be reunited with our loved ones who have gone before us… we are so looking forward to when you will embrace us and wipe the last tears from our eyes…we thank you for going before us and for preparing a home for us that is so amazing it is beyond anything we can imagine.


Please wrap your arms around all who are hurting…may they find comfort in the midst of their struggles…please provide for all who are in need…we thank you for your goodness, kindness and faithfulness…we thank you for pouring yourself into us. We thank you for giving us your Holy Spirit.  We thank you in advance for all you will do. We thank you that we can come to you in prayer and ask these things in the name of Jesus. Amen

Blessings to you friends!

Much love in Him,
Debbie

Prayer For May 16th

May 16, 2018

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

Dear Heavenly Father,

We thank you for being our strong tower…our place of refuge that we can run to when life becomes too hard…our place of comfort when people hurt us and are difficult to be around…our place of rest when we just feel beat up, worn down and empty…when we run to you we don’t have to explain what has happened or how we feel…we don’t have to try to convince you of anything…you see…you understand…you are full of compassion and long to comfort us and give us shelter from the storms and our enemies…you long to dry our tears, bear our burdens and take our pain upon yourself…

Thank you for being our loving Father and The Great Physician…you know what we need and when we need it…you are moved by our pain and you are never closer than when our hearts are breaking…you are Immanuel…The God who is with us…who is with each of us, every moment of every day…you feel our sadness and brokenness…you feel our fear and anxiety…you understand each sigh and the unspoken words of our deepest longings…

Lord, we come to you today and we just lay everything before you…we give you are impossible situations we don’t know how to deal with…we give you our troubled relationships…we lay before you all of our financial needs…all of our illnesses, injuries, disabilities and physical and emotional pain…we give you our grief…we give you all of our concerns for our loved ones and friends and all the things they are dealing with… we give you our racing thoughts, all of our stress and all the things that steal our joy, our peace and sleep…

Thank you for being the hope we cling to, even when things are hard…even when life feels like nothing more than something we just want to escape…you are the gift in the midst of it all…your presence…your comfort…your peace…you are our greatest blessing…the silver lining in every cloud…the hope that sustains us and the light that guides us…thank you for sustaining us and helping us to endure and persevere.

Take our lives, Lord…renew, refresh, restore, replenish every area that is depleted and in need of your touch…make our thoughts to be right, holy and pure…give us fresh insight about our circumstances…may our cups overflow with your peace and joy. We love you, Lord and we are so very grateful for your saving grace. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen

May you feel His nearness friends!
In His love,
Debbie

Prayer For May 15th

May 15, 2018

Hello, Friends! Here is the prayer for today…

Dear Heavenly Father,

As we gather in prayer, we ask you to empty us …empty us of all of our cares and worries… empty us of all the things that distract us from your presence and rob us of your joy and peace…empty us of anything that is not pleasing to you, Father and then fill us with things of you…fill us with your Spirit, your hope, your joy, your peace, your wisdom, your grace and your love.

Please hold close to your heart all who are ill, hurting, struggling or grieving… may they feel your comfort and nearness. We ask Father, that in the stillness of this moment that we would be able to speak with you of  our deepest feelings, needs and emotions. May we have confidence in who you are and the relationship we have with them…you love us and encourage us to speak freely, openly and honestly with you…you don’t want us to hold anything back…You tell us to come boldly to your throne of grace… your ear is attentive to us and you will not cast us aside… you will never be too busy for us…you have a heart of compassion towards your children…our pain is your pain, our grief your grief…our well being is always on your mind…

May each of us find release and healing from anything that has a stronghold on our lives. We ask for freedom, peace and healing and that you would do for us what we can’t do for ourselves… please turn a new page… open new doors and close any doors that need to stay closed…please have your way  with us and may your will be done so we can live life to the fullest and be all that you’ve called us to be.

Please help us to cling to your truth and embrace your love…help us to persevere in the face of hardship, difficulty and loss. Thank you for your patience with us when we get discouraged. Thank you for understanding and for being there to pick us up and dust us off when we stumble and fall. Thank you for your faithfulness and for believing in us when we can’t even believe in ourselves. We love you, Lord. We thank you that we can ask these things in the name of our wonderful Savior, Jesus. Amen

Blessings be upon you!
Much love in Him,
Debbie

Prayer For May 14th

May 14, 2018

Hello, Friends! Here is the prayer for today…

Dear Lord,

Sometimes life and grief come at us in such powerful waves we feel like our feet are being knocked out from under us and we will be swept away and overpowered by all that we face…help us to remember that we are held by you and you promise to never let go…

You know our innermost thoughts and feelings…you know the secret things we deal with…the things that people might not see or know about…you know all the things that people don’t understand about us or our situations…you know the weariness and the difficulties and you know how often we feel ill-equipped to keep going on…thank you for being our anchor and the rock we can always cling to…you never fail us or forsake us…thank you for your love, compassion, grace, mercy and peace…thank you for being our closest confidant, our greatest ally, our biggest supporter and our unending source of encouragement …

Please meet us where we are at today…You are The Creator of All…even the winds and waves must obey you…we know that you don’t  always choose to calm the storms, but instead choose to calm us in the midst of the storms…may we be at rest and peace as we trust that you are in control and that you have a watchful eye upon us...because you are with us, there is no safer place to be than in your presence…help us to remember our track record of making it through difficulties thus far is 100% and you are not about to fail us now…you are faithful to complete the good work that you have begun in us…how grateful we are for your nearness and faithfulness. We thank you that we can ask these things in the name of our Savior, Jesus. Amen


May God Bless you today and always friends!

In His love,
Debbie

Prayer For May 13th

May 12, 2018

Hello, Friends! Here is the prayer for today…

Dear Lord,

We thank you for today…we thank you for the gift of life…we thank you for our mothers and for all who have poured into our lives with their love, support and encouragement…please bless each one a hundred fold for the ways they have blessed us.

For so many, Mother’s Day is difficult…for many their mother is not in their life …some didn’t have a good relationship with their mom and today is just a painful reminder of that fact… for others they are estranged or they never knew their mom…for many their mother’s are in heaven…some are struggling at this moment watching as their mother’s health is declining…for all who are struggling with grief, sadness or loss today, we ask for your peace and comfort to rest upon them…we especially ask for your comfort for those who are experiencing their first Mother’s Day without their loved ones. Lord, please touch each heart as only you can…you are the only one who can truly fill those broken, hurting places.

We lift up to you as well, the mothers who are grieving for their children who are in heaven … for the moms who are without their children for other reasons…for the mother’s who are estranged from their children and grandchildren…for the women who have longed to be a mother, but have empty arms…for the mother’s who have children who are terminally ill or who are dealing with chronic illness, disabilities or addictions…may every hurting heart feel your nearness today and may they find comfort knowing you see every tear that is shed and hear their silent prayers.

We also pray for single parents…the single mothers and the fathers who serve as both dad and mom…it can be so difficult to parent alone…may they find comfort knowing they are seen by you…you see all the struggles and you are aware more than anyone else all they sacrifice for their children… please help them when they are weary and overwhelmed…be their provider, helpmate, source of encouragement and strength…

Thank you Lord, for your unconditional love for us … we pray for every person who feels unloved, unwanted, or abandoned… especially today…we pray they would look to you to fill the empty places in their lives…please remind them that you have known them by name since they were in their mother’s womb… your thoughts for them are more than the grains of sand and they have infinite worth and value in your eyes…we thank you that your unconditional love is the greatest love we will ever know. Thank you for our many blessings…help us to appreciate  those we love every day of the year. We ask these things in Jesus’ name.  Amen!

Blessings to you all!
Much love in Him,
Debbie

Prayer For May 12th

May 12, 2018

Hello, Friends! Here is the prayer for today…

Dear Lord,

We are told in scripture that you will turn our mourning to dancing and you will gird us with gladness… you will take away our clothes of mourning and dress us in joy….our weeping and tears will last through the night, but joy comes in the morning.

Many who are praying with us are in such hard places they can’t imagine that they will ever be able to laugh or feel joy again…but you are the God of the miraculous and The One who never breaks a promise…you are never closer to us than when we are hurting…

May your joy ,peace and comfort fill every hurting heart today…may thoughts of you fill our days, and our dreams at night… May we remember that you don’t promise just to exchange our mourning…you will convert it…you will take every hard and hurtful thing we have endured and convert it into something that brings spiritual fruit… into something that will bring us closer to you… into something that makes us more like Jesus. You waste nothing…you  keep track of our tears so you can redeem them.

Please give us moments that make us smile this weekend…laughter is such good medicine for body, mind and spirit…please give us peaceful moments where we can escape the cares and pain of this life and just be like a child who is carefree…May your joy give us strength to endure and press on. We thank you in advance for all you will do. In Jesus’ name we ask these things. Amen

May your heart be filled to overflowing!

Much love in Him,
Debbie

Prayer For May 11th

May 11, 2018

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

How grateful we are to call you Abba Father… how grateful we are for all you do for us…your Word says that you will extend peace like a river to us…whenever you give anything to us, you do not do it half-way…you do not give the bare minimum…you give in abundance…you took a few fish and loaves of bread and made more than enough…you filled the apostle’s fishing nets to overflowing…you spared nothing in giving us Jesus and He gave His all that we might live…

You tell us as a mother comforts her child, you will comfort us…you give us that beautiful picture of comfort, love and compassion…you take us tenderly to yourself…you pour your love into us…you hold us close when we are lonely, fearful and when tears fall…you hold us gently and with compassion…you soothe us when our spirits are stirred within us and when our heart’s cry out in pain…we can rest peacefully in your arms, knowing we are safe and held and protected…anything that comes after us, must first come through you…

Father…help us to remember when we feel like we are in a dark tunnel and we can’t see the light, that the SON has not stopped shining His light…it’s just that we can’t see Him for the moment. Help us to trust and be patient…help us to remember that these afflictions and trials are only for a moment compared to eternity and they can’t begin to compare to the joy that is coming…help us remember that you are still with us, watching over us and you are closer than a mother who watches over her child…

Thank you for the comfort your Word gives…thank you for being our friend, our father, our mother, our brother, our protector, our leader, our provider, our comforter, the lover of our souls and the lifter of our heads…you are everything…absolutely everything we need…you provide everything we need…and with you we are home and are made whole. May we open ourselves to receive all that you have for us, including your peace like a river…may we take it in and bask in it until nothing can disturb us or distract us…fill us Lord, we pray in the name of our beloved Savior Jesus. Amen

May you receive all He has for you today…

In His love,
Debbie
