God Is With You In The Midst Of Your Crisis

We can be walking along the road of life, minding our own business when suddenly, without warning, the storm clouds of crisis come rolling in. We are “out in the open” and unprepared, when abruptly painful tragedy rains down on us.

When times go well it is easy to take things for granted. The simple pleasures are overlooked. Blessing is expected rather than received with gratitude. Have you ever thought about how many things we take for granted every single day?

Prayer For My Enemies

There is none like unto the God of Jeshurun, who rideth upon the heaven in thy help, and in his excellency on the sky. The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms: and he shall thrust out the enemy from before thee; and shall say, Destroy them Deuteronomy 33:26-27.

Heavenly Father I thank you earnestly for your great love and the blessings of family and friends. I come to you in prayer asking that you protect me and my loved ones from the attacks of our enemies.

I bind all negative powers and influences today. You have no authority over me or my family. I speak confusion into satan’s assignments. I come against all those spirits trying to confuse and hurt my family members.

Please bind their lying tongues and destroy their evil plots against me and my loved ones!
Deliver us please, and let us also proclaim: “He delivered me from my strong enemy, and from them which hated me: for they were too strong for me.” Psalm 18:17. So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.” Hebrews 13:5-6.

Forgive my enemies Lord and all those who have tried to hurt or harmed us. Lord I know that it is not your will that anyone should perish but that all should come to salvation in Jesus Christ and so I bring all those people in my life and of my loved ones that have sought to do us evil or inflict harm on us, whether intentionally or otherwise. Lord I ask for mercy and blessings upon their lives.

Save them from your judgement and let not satan have dominion over their lives. In Jesus name I pray. Amen

Prayer For A New Work Week #2

Almighty and everlasting Father, I am grateful that you have brought me safely to this new day. As I embark on a new work week guide me so that I may always make the right choices and so that I can continue to grow into the person you would want me to be. Preserve me with your mighty power that I might not sin nor be overcome by adversity. In all I do direct me to the fulfilment of your purpose.

Dear Lord help me to appreciate all the useful opportunities I have and to use them to the best of my ability. Give me the strength to persevere with my work, especially when I feel most pressured and stressed. Give me patience with those whom perhaps dislike me, let me be kind to those who may be unkind to me and generous to those who are selfish. Let me show them your love and compassion.

May the week ahead be full of happiness as you pour your grace upon me. In Jesus name I pray. Amen

I Am Thankful

I am thankful for my life, all the beauty and brokenness of it. Each part of my life shapes me into the person I am, the person God is creating me to be.

I am thankful for the truths the Lord continues to reveal to me. He loves me more than I realize.

I am thankful for God’s grace. I am so thankful that no matter how many times I fail, he still loves me.

I am thankful for God’s strength and mercy throughout the past year…it’s been a rough one. I have had my down times but God’s word and promises brought me up each time.

I am thankful to God for continually teaching me how to trust Him in all things.

I am so thankful for the blessings I have in spite of things being very unsettled and difficult financially and emotionally right now. God is faithful.

I am thankful for my singleness. I never thought I would say it out loud. I see broken relationships all around and I’m grateful that I don’t have the stress of trying to make something work. I thank God for the protection of the potential bad relationships I could have stayed in, but ended.

I thank you Lord for each and every blessing and strive to share those blessings with those who don’t have what I have!

I have so much to be thankful for from a tangible perspective but also and more importantly, from a spiritual perspective.

I cannot thank God enough for all his goodness, blessings and even the bad situations too as those times have brought me closer to him.

Being thankful in ALL things gives me a heart of gratitude that pushes away despair, leading the way to a life of gratefulness that only God can provide!

Let us constantly be aware and give thanks for the blessings seen and unseen that surround us daily. And in this way, let us “Rejoice always. Pray without ceasing. Give thanks in all circumstances” remembering that this is “the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”

A Prayer For My Family

Thank you Heavenly Father for the many blessings you have given to me and my family. For our health, our happiness and the things you have given us so generously. I pray that our love and faith will grow, and become stronger than any adversity or any temptation. We are relying on your mighty power and infinite mercy and grace.

I pray that no matter how separated we may be by distance, we shall always be close to one another, and to you, serving you faithfully. May we continue to grow in love and peace, ever seeking guidance in all we do. I pray that we will love you above all things, with our whole heart and soul.

Trusting God In Your Storm

Cause me to hear thy lovingkindness in the morning; for in thee do I trust: cause me to know the way wherein I should walk; for I lift up my soul unto thee. Psalm 143:8.

Picture yourself walking along a road on a rainy day. The sky becomes darker. Lightning starts to flash, thunder booms, then comes rain. You hurry along, desperately looking for a refuge. There, by the roadside, you see a shelter. It is sturdy, dry, and inviting. How you value that safe place!

Prayer For A New Week

Heavenly Father I thank you for the beginning of a new work week. I dedicate this week to you Lord and trust that as I make plans, you are directing my steps. I pray your divine wisdom guide me through this week. Take away any form of fear and anxiety because those feelings are not of you oh Lord. I ask that you give me wisdom and grace throughout this day. Give me the patience to deal with difficult co-workers and clients. Rather than be annoyed at them, help me pray for those who, in the past have caused me distress on my job.

Life In The Vine

In John 15:5-6 Jesus says, “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned”.
