Today’s Prayer: Commitment

Father, in the name of Jesus, we give you praise for another day. Glory to the Lamb of God!

Father, as resurrection day approaches, we want to say THANK YOU. Thank you for keeping your commitment and going to the cross for our sins. You could have turned back knowing the pain, torment, shame and humiliation you had to endure, but you saw us, your children, and you finished your course. Thank you for rising again on the third day with all power in your hands. Because of your obedience and commitment, we are overcomers in you!

Today we commit our lives unto you, and we will trust in you. Father, because of all you have done for us, we ask that you help us to continuously present our bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable unto you, which is our reasonable spiritual service of worship.

When times are difficult, we will remember what Christ did for us over two-thousand years ago. We will fight the good fight of faith and we will finish the course you have set before us in, Jesus Name.

Lord, help us to obey you and keep your commandments and statutes which you have commanded us. Father, we thank you for giving yourself for our sins, so you might rescue us from this evil age, according to the will of our God and Father.

Lord, help us to follow you, keep your commandments, listen to your voice, serve and cling to you all the days of our lives.

In the wonderful name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ…Amen.

HE HAS RISEN!

Today’s Prayer: Life, Trust & God’s Promises

Hi guys! I pray you are well. Today, I am grateful that my family is safe and in the land of the living! Lord, I thank you for life!

Today’s prayer is a little different; it comes from a very personal place.

I want to thank My Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Yesterday, my husband was in a terrible car accident! God’s angels protected him; he is fine but, it is a reminder of how often we need to pray and cover our families as well as pray for angelic protection when we are going about our day.

Father, I am so grateful for life! Yesterday could have been an entirely different day with a terrible ending, BUT GOD!!! Although I am frustrated because of what I have been experiencing, I WILL TRUST YOU. Father, as tears stream down my face, I know that those who sow with tears will reap with songs of joy.

Things are difficult right now and has been that way since we have begun our God-given assignment, but I am trusting you through each trial you lead me through. I WILL stand on your word. I know beyond a shadow of a doubt you are with me and my family.

As the body of Christ, we will not give up. We will stand on your promises no matter what it looks like because your promises are Yes and Amen.

I thank you for meeting my needs and the needs of your people! You know what we have need of before we ask, and we know you will supply ALL OUR needs according to your riches in Glory that is in Christ Jesus. We thank you that earth is the Lords’ and the fullness thereof. I am thankful that you OWN IT ALL, not man.

Lord, when it is all said and done, I know it will be good that I was afflicted.

I (We) trust you now and always in Jesus Name…Amen.

Today’s Prayer: Gratefulness

Blessings everyone! Happy Thursday. I encourage you to enjoy every moment God gives you.  Sometimes we are so excited about the weekend or a holiday that we forget to give thanks for the blessings we experience every day. Remember to give thanks always and for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ – Ephesians 5:20

Father in the name of Jesus, we give you thanks! Today and always, we will give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus. Lord, we are grateful for receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, and we offer to you an acceptable worship, with reverence and awe…Amen.

You are a good God; our provider, counselor and friend. Lord, we will praise your name with a song! We will magnify you with thanksgiving. Hallelujah!

Lord, we are grateful that you sent your son Jesus Christ. It is by your grace we have been saved through faith. Thanks be to God for his inexpressible gift! Today and always we say thank you.

In Jesus name…Amen.

Hello people of God!! I pray you are having an excellent week! If your week is not going the way you planned trust God! He is with you. Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous! Do not tremble or be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.

We will not lean on our own understanding but trust you with all our hearts. We commit our lives unto you. As we seek your direction, we trust you for the answer in all things; because we know your name, we will put our trust in you. And as we seek you, you will not forsake us. Glory to God!

We will sit in your presence in stillness because YOU ARE God! You will be exalted among the nations and the earth. We thank you for another day and we give you praise for life, health, and strength.

Today’s Prayer: Protection

Hello Everyone!! I pray you are well and are enjoying the first couple days of Spring!! I am grateful for the changing of the season. It is a reminder that nothing remains the same. Please know that if you are experiencing difficult circumstances, it won’t last always. Ecclesiastes 3:1 – “There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens” (NIV).

Lord, thank you for your protection. Sometimes we take for granted the fact that we get home safely each day. But today we remember, and we say thank you for protecting us.

Each morning as we head out the door, we ask for your wisdom for the places we need to go and the decisions we need to make. Help us to walk in wisdom and understanding, as wisdom will watch over us and understanding will keep us safe. Remind us not to turn our back on your wisdom for it will protect and guard us.

We trust you because you are faithful as you strengthen and protect us from the evil one. For you are the God that goes with us, to fight for us against our enemies. Therefore, we will be strong and courageous because you uphold us with your righteous hand. We will not be dismayed by the darts the enemy throws our way, because YOU ARE OUR GOD; our refuge and our strength and a very present help in the time of trouble.

We know beyond a shadow of a doubt, that you protect and watch over us! And for that we are grateful. Thank you for the victory!

In Jesus Name…Amen

Today’s Prayer: Integrity

Good morning people of God! Rejoice, God is with you.

Father in the name of Jesus, THANK YOU. If you do nothing else for us, we are still abundantly blessed.

Lord, in these evils times we live in, help us to walk in integrity. We know it is not a popular topic, but it is ALWAYS right. You word says that those of us who walk in integrity, walk safely, but those who follow crooked paths will be exposed.

Lord, help us to walk as your servant Job. Help us not to speak falsehood and not utter deceit. Until we die, help us not to put away our integrity, while we hold fast to our righteousness. Help us to be a good example of integrity to our children because they will be blessed as we walk in integrity.

Lord, help us to aim for what is honorable, not only in your sight, but in the sight of man. And as we wait on you, may integrity and uprightness preserve us.

Lord, we ask your forgiveness for the times we did not walk in integrity. Help us to do better because we know better.

We ask for all these things according to your Word in Jesus Name…Amen!

Have a wonderful day!

Today’s Prayer: God Cares

Good morning People of God! I pray God’s best for you today. And whatever you do whether it be in word or deed, do it unto the Lord.

Father, in the name of Jesus. Thank you once again for your love and grace. It leaves us speechless. Lord, despite all we experience, cause us to remember that you care for us. There are times in our spiritual walk that you seem so far from us but help us to remember that you will never leave us or forsake us. Remind us that you are with us wherever we go, and you will not leave us until You have done what You have promised us.”  Hallelujah!

When we are overwhelmed, remind us to cast our anxieties on you, because you care for us. Thank you for caring for us so much that you gave your only son so we could have eternal life in Heaven with you. Glory to God!

We are forever grateful that you are the same God yesterday, today, and forever, which means you will ALWAYS care for us.

We thank you for all things in Jesus Name…Amen.

Today’s Prayer: Waiting

Hello People of God! Just in case you forgot, you are beautiful in the sight of God. You are fearfully and wonderfully made!

Lord, we give you thanks for who you are, and we are humbled by another opportunity to give you praise. Glory to God!

Lord, each of us is in a state of waiting. Whether it be waiting for our child to return to you, deliverance from addiction, waiting for our spouse, healing in our bodies, or a financial breakthrough, we are all waiting.

Lord, there are times when the waiting is difficult. But God, we know you are with us. Thank you for being good to those who wait on you and seek you. Lord, as we wait on you, help us to remain strong and let our hearts take courage.

Help us not to look at those who prosper in their own way, but be still and wait patiently on you. We decree and declare that we will not be weary in well-doing because we will reap if we don’t faint.

Lord, as we wait on you, thank you for renewing our strength. Lead us in your truth and teach us, for you are the God of our salvation and FOR YOU, we will wait all day long.

We trust your will, your way, and your plan. In Jesus Name…Amen.

Today’s Prayer: Self-Control

Good morning beautiful people of God! Jesus LOVES YOU!

Father in the name of Jesus, thank you for your presence. Where would we be without it?  As the second month of the new year comes to an end, we ask that you help us to walk in self-control. Help us to control our thoughts and actions, so we may finish the race you have set before us.

Father, each day we are bombarded with negative thoughts that attempt to infiltrate our hearts. As we face the daily temptation to act on those thoughts, remind us that you have not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, love and self-control. Thank you Lord for the power, to change our thoughts, you said we can do all things through Christ that strengthens us, so we know we have self-control because your divine power has granted us all things that pertain to life and godliness; and that includes self-control.

Help us to value the importance of prayer and spending time in your word, as doing those things lead to self-control. Help us to walk in the fruit of the Spirit which is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.

Father, we know the end of all things is at hand, therefore, help us to walk in self-control and be sober minded.

Lord, we thank you for your grace; for it brings salvation for all people, training us to renounce ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in this present age, as we wait for our blessed hope which is you.

We thank you for answering our prayer in Jesus Name…Amen.

Have a WONDERFUL day!

Today’s Prayer: Love

Father, in the name of Jesus, thank you for another week in the land of the living. We are grateful for your love towards us.

On this Valentine’s Day, we thank you for being the inventor of love. You love us so much, that you gave your only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

On a day like today it is easy for us to love those we love, but God we ask that you help us to love our enemies and do good. Help us to obey your commandment and love one another as you have loved us.

With all we do, help us to do it in love; because without love, we are nothing.

Lord, thank you for this wonderful day. In Jesus name…Amen.

Today’s Prayer: Peace

Good morning beautiful people of God!

Father in the name of Jesus, thank you for another day! We bless your wonderful name.

Lord with each passing day, remind us to keep our minds on you. Your word tells us you will keep us in perfect peace as we keep our minds on you, because we trust you.

We ask that your peace rule in our hearts, and we thank you in advance that YOU have overcome the world, which means we already have the victory in Christ Jesus.

As we go about our weekend, we submit ourselves to you. And when the enemy attempts to rob us of our peace help us to resist him because he will flee from us.

Thank you for being the Lord of peace. In Jesus name…Amen

Today’s Prayer: Believe

Father in the name of Jesus, we thank you for another day to give you glory and praise.

Father help us to believe your word in all things. Help us not to be moved by what we see, but continually teach us to stand on your word. Your word says, without faith, it is impossible to please God. Remind us to continually walk in faith on a moment by moment basis so we can please you.

Father, with everything happening in the earth, cause us to draw closer to you. Lord, I pray we don’t fall into having a sinful unbelieving heart that turns away from the living God.

My prayer for us today is that the God of hope fill us with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit we may abound in hope.

We are grateful that you delight in the prayers of the upright and we thank you in advance for answering our prayers. You are good and your mercy endures forever.

We really can’t thank you enough!
In Jesus Name…Amen

Resolutions No…Living Yes

Hi there. Happy New Year! I hope you are still celebrating. Praise God for another year to be in the land of the living. I enjoyed my New Year’s. I spent most of my time being with my family while watching A LOT of movies!

One of the movies I watched was called, Me Before You. It was FANTASTIC and I believe confirmed my post, which I wrote over three weeks ago. Sidebar, it is so important to understand the timing of God in everything. 😊

I don’t believe in New Year’s resolutions. I learned years ago that most resolutions fail. There is nothing wrong with setting goals, but resolutions, no thanks!

As each year passes, my greatest desire is to continuously deepen my relationship with Christ. I want to please the Lord by being the best Christian, wife, mother, and friend he created me to be; by his grace. My other desire is to enjoy my life. To enjoy the one life God has given me. I know that seems like a given, but for many years, I did not know I could enjoy my life.

I had a difficult upbringing filled with a lot of pain and sorrow. For a long time, I believed my life was destined to be full of pain and nothing more. At one time, I believed the lies of the enemy and thought my life would always be full of defeat. As I grew in Christ and began my healing process, I learned he wanted more for my life. I learned he wants me to have an abundant life and he wanted me to enjoy it.

John 10:10 “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly (KJV).

Ecclesiastes 2:24 – “There is nothing better for a man, than that he should eat and drink, and that he should make his soul enjoy good in his labour. This also I saw, that it was from the hand of God” (KJV).

When I learned God wanted me to have a joyful and abundant life, my mindset changed, and I began to desire much more. There are so many things I have not done, all because I believed I could not do them, but now…

I want to visit Japan, go horseback riding, go ice skating, stay at an eight-star resort and order room service (with my hubby). Go to my first concert EVER! I want to see my favorite Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli. I want to go to the Opera, go camping (in a cabin, not the woods). I desire to go on an African safari, and the list truly goes on and on 😊.

I probably won’t be able to do all these things this year! I still have young children. But I have placed my prayer requests before God, and I have faith that at the right time, he will give me the desires of my heart according to his will.

Now, please hear me. God is not a genie. We don’t just go to him when we want something. Our primary goal should be to glorify God always. But God enjoys seeing his children blessed and prosperous. And he wants us to come to him about EVERYTHING.

I’ve been through so much in my life, and know I will face additional circumstances, because that’s life. But regardless of the obstacles I will face, God still wants me (AND YOU) to have an abundant life.

Do you have any desires, dreams or long-terms goals? I am sure you do! Tell God about it. He already knows what is in your heart. God desires to give us what we want according to his will. All we have to do is ask.

I John 5:14-15 – “And this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of Him” (KJV).

Psalm 20:4 – “May he grant your heart’s desires and make all your plans succeed” (NLT).

You only get one life, it is your responsibility to live it as fully as possible.” –
From the movie Me Before You. I think you should watch the movie, it was in my opinion, beautiful and funny too.

Today’s Prayer

Father in the name of Jesus, we can’t say thank you enough. You have allowed us to see another year. We are grateful.

Lord, we as begin the New Year, help us to BE the church and not just attend it. Help us to stay focused on why we’re here, and that is to fulfill the GREAT COMMISSION. Help us to remember, it is not just about your blessings, but the souls of your people.

As the body of Christ, help us to obey your commandment by “Loving one another as you have loved us; because if we do not have love, we are nothing”. Lord cause us to “Consider others before thinking of ourselves”. For your word tells us there is “No greater love than when we lay down our life for our friends.”

Let our heart’s desire be to please you more. We love and thank you for your bountiful blessings. In Jesus Name…Amen.

Hello Everyone!! Happy New Year.

May this New Year bring you blessings, peace and prosperity in all things. I know God has great plans in store for you because His word says so. I am praying for you.

Blessings and have a WONDERFUL day!

 

Today’s Prayer

Father, in the name of Jesus, thank you for another year to celebrate your birth. Help us to continue to focus on who you are. The Great I AM. The Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world.

As we cross over into the New Year, I pray our heart’s desire is to please you more. To not only be hearers of your word but doers.

Your word tells us you have great plans for our lives; plans to prosper us, to give us a future and a hope. Therefore, as we make our plans for the year, remind us to acknowledge you because you will make our paths straight.

We love you Lord. Thank you for the grace and mercy you bestow on us with each new morning. We don’t deserve it but are thankful for your love towards us. What a Love!

In Jesus Name…Amen

A reminder from my eight-year-old

I am so grateful for my children. All five of them are unique in their own way and a blessing to me in many ways.

My children and I always talk. It is something I cherish because I did not have it with my parents. My youngest son, who is eight, likes to talk the most. For an eight-year-old, he has such profound insight and it amazes me. He reminds me of myself at that age as God allowed me to see things that most adults did not see. Unfortunately, I could not express what I saw. As a result of my experience, I allow my children to speak what is on their heart and mind…most of the time. 😊

A few days ago, my youngest and I were talking about his eldest brother who is twenty-five and experiencing his own life struggles. I said to him, “Your big brother is going through a lot right now.” He said, “I know, but people think life is over when bad things happen, but there is always a blessing after the bad.” I looked at him and told him he was correct!

Psalms 127:3 – “Children are a gift from the LORD; they are a reward from him” (NLT).

God is amazing! He will use anyone to remind us of his word, even our children.
His statement was a reminder of God’s love, and grace towards us even in difficult times.

As Christians, we will endure trials because the Word tells us so. I Peter 1:6 says, “Be truly glad. There is wonderful joy ahead, even though you have to endure many trials for a little while” (NLT).

However, when experiencing a trial, the difficulty comes when the trial lasts for more than a day, a week, a month or a year. The key to success while going through any trial is consistently praying and studying the Word of God.

God will use the most difficult times in our lives to stretch us in our spiritual walk and teach us how to trust him on a deeper level. We must keep our focus on Christ alone. If our focus shifts elsewhere, we open ourselves up to discouragement and feelings of defeat.

But I encourage you to stay with God. I thank God that negative circumstances are only designed to build us up, not to destroy us. The trial is only for a season. As my son Jeremiah said, “there is always a blessing after the bad.” When we come out on the other side of it, we will be better.  Job 23:10 says, “But he knows the way that I take; when he has tested me, I will come forth as gold.”

These days, as we watch the news, we can be saddened and discouraged by what we see and hear. But we must remember God has a blessing after the bad.

John 16:33 – In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world” (NIV).
