“A Prayer For Being Non-Vindictive”

June 29, 2018

Praying man Father, in Your time, You make all things beautiful. You can take the hurtful situations I’m dealt in life and turn them into blessing. You turn my mourning into gladness and my weeping into dancing as You lift the heavy burdens that weigh me down. O God, by Your strength, I will look to You and not allow the heartache I am dealing with to overwhelm me, for “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me”. Amen.

“A Prayer For Ending Well”

June 28, 2018

Praying manDaily prayer: Jesus, thank You for the dear friends who’ve brought vibrant color to our lives in various ways; those who simply warm our hearts, others who’ve taught us by their example and still others who’ve helped carry our burdens along the way. So many of them were a part of our lives for only a season, but the duration of their influence is ongoing. Though we’ve had to bid “farewell” to so many through death or separation I’m heartened by Your promise that You will never leave us or forsake us. No matter what season or calamity we may face, Your enduring presence and provision will see us through to the other side. Thank You for being a friend that sticks closer than a brother. Amen

“A Prayer For Plodders”

June 27, 2018

Praying man Father, when we begin our journey with You, we’re uncertain of all that lies ahead. We’re told in Scripture that if we walk with Christ old things have passed away, and all things have become new. That’s because we now align our thoughts and actions according to Scripture; we begin to see through the eyes of Christ; and we press on to the high calling of God in Christ Jesus so that we will receive our future eternal reward laid up for us already in heaven. Keep us steadily plodding, trusting, while also being fruitful as we press on in the faith. Through Christ Jesus we pray. Amen.

“A Prayer For Being Patient And Content”

June 26, 2018

Praying man Father, we are a blessed people; no longer slaves to sin, we are Your children. In fact you call the fallen ones Your own. In addition to freedom from slavery to sin on this side we are promised eternal bliss on the other side, permanent residency in heaven where we will have no more need for attitude adjustments. When we fix our hearts on all that we have in this life and the next we no longer dwell upon that which we don’t have. In fact we’ll think about the promises in Scripture that teach us the very best is yet to come and it will not be taken away from us. We’re grateful to You, our benevolent God, who gives all good things to us, Your children. Amen.
