A Prayer For Accomplishment

Selfie

Today’s Prayer

Dear Lord,

I pray that You will give me the insight as to how to use the tools You have given me–whether spiritual gifts, talents, skills, work place or other–as a ministry in daily life.

I don’t just want to work, take care of my self and my family, my dwelling place, and participate in church life, I want to actually have a mind of ministry to do Your will and impact lives for You.

May You move and minister through my life to accomplish Your purpose.

Thank You.

In Jesus’ name, amen.

A Prayer About Plans

Sunshine in Greece

Today’s Prayer

God,

When I remember the story of Joseph’s life,

I realize how you want so much more for me than I could ever dream of.

I also see how you can turn what man means for evil into what you mean for good.

Please bring this to my mind whenever I’m feeling doubt and confusion;

whenever I’m feeling oppressed and alone;

whenever I’m feeling unjustly treated;

whenever I think that I don’t have something I need.

I know that you are in control.

I pray that I will always allow you to do your work and that I will not interfere in your plans for me.

Please give me strength and fill me with your desires for me.

Thank you,

loving Father.

In Jesus’ name,

amen.

A Prayer About Friendship

Dear God,

Do other people see me as a faithful friend or a burdensome buddy?

I pray that I will be the kind of person that other people love and appreciate; not a person that others want to avoid.

And I pray that I will be a good friend to others.

“A man that hath friends must show himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother” (Proverbs 18:24).

Help me to improve my friendship skills…and to be an example of your love in all I do.

Thank you, God.

In Jesus’ name I pray and give you praise, amen.

A Prayer For Discernment

Today’s Prayer
“Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour” (1 Pet. 5:8).

Dear Lord, I am so aware of howย Satan picks at me and tries to trip me all the time.

I know there are spiritual dangers around me.

Please help me to remain alert and to be under the Holy Spirit’s control at all times.

I want to draw near to You, so the devil will flee.

Please protect my family and me from harm and evil.

Thank You for Your love, concern, and protection.

Inย Jesus’ name, amen.

Praying Hands

I felt impressed to share this prayer with you all. My peers at college are busy watching the new film “Evil Dead” and I decided that I was going to check my emails so that I didn’t have to watch it.

As I was reading I came across an email that I hadn’t yet read. The prayer seemed so perfect for me right now as I have been praying during this movie.

I can hear everything that is going on in the film and can see how intrigued my peers are, but I can see the Lord and would rather commune with Him than stray into the devils territory.

Praise be to God, who loves me and will always protect me even when it seems that I am in a difficult situation that may test my relationship with Him.

The Good Morning Prayer

Sunshine

Today’s Prayer

Good morning, God. As I look forward to this day, I want to start by thanking you for all the many blessings you have given me. The little things I so often take for granted, like having food, clothing and shelter; being able to work; being able to get up out of the bed even. Keep me focused on what is important in life. Help me to sow good things in this world. If I’m not doing enough, or not doing all you want me to do, please remind me and guide me. I praise You, God, and give you the glory, great things you have done. Amen.

The Prayer of Reflection & Discernment

Morning All!

I found this beautiful prayer and thought that I should share it with you. I would like you to read i because I think that it’s something that we should all pray when we wake up. It reminds us of our Father and allows Him to help us during our day and to help us share our love for Him with others. You will understand this when you read it. ๐Ÿ™‚

Today’s Prayer

Dear God,

I pray that you will give me strength, wisdom, knowledge and a sensitivity to recognize the opportunities before me to tell others about you. I pray that I will have eyes to see and ears to hear your message and your whispers and a heart to feel the prompting of the Holy Spirit to speak, to act, to make a difference in the lives of others. Thank you, God, for all you have done for me and all you will do through me for your glory and honor. I praise you, for you are great and mighty. You are my God and Creator, my Father and Nurturer, my God who is always there loving me, guiding me, and protecting me. Thank you, in Jesus’ name, amen.

Time To Hear

Hi everyone!

Yesterday I was s checking my emails and I came across this lovely one. I thought that I would share it with you because I believe that God should come first everyday and that we should look after our bodies. I hope that you enjoy it and that it helps you with your daily walk with god ๐Ÿ™‚

Today’s Prayer
Dear Father in Heaven, praise be to your name in all the earth! Thank you for the years of good health you have given, and for walking me through the times when I have been ill or faced physical problems. I pray that I, and every Christian, will always be mindful of the fact that our bodies are the temples of the Holy Spirit. We want to keep ourselves clean, pure, and as healthy as possible, for we need to be good examples and have good testimonies before others. We need to honor you and your Spirit through our bodies, as well as our minds and actions. Please give us wisdom and knowledge of right things to eat, the right ways to exercise, and motivate us to do what we must to stay in shape and be healthy. So often we get busy and have so much to do, that we do not make time to take care of our physical bodies. Open the door, give us the desire, and show us the way. May we take care of what you have given us. In the name of the Savior I pray, amen.


Time to Hear
TGIF Today God Is First Volume 1, by Os Hillman

“He who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I too will love him and show Myself to him.” – John 14:21b

We live in a day of 12-step programs for this, four points to success for that, and all forms of programmed means of becoming successful. Have you ever wondered how you can guarantee a greater revelation of Jesus in your life? Jesus tells us how this can be done. It is all tied to obedience. In John, He tells us the following: “Whoever has My commands and obeys them, he is the one who loves Me. He who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I too will love him and show Myself to him” (Jn. 14:21). The key here is in the last three words. He will show Himself to us because of our loving Him through our obedience. The more obedient we become, the more revelation of His presence we will feel in our life. Jeremiah tells us, “Call to Me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know” (Jer. 33:3).

Many Christians wonder why they cannot hear or sense God’s presence in their life. It is because they do not seek Him with a whole heart, and they are not obedient to the things He has asked. God does not show us the next move until we are obedient to the first thing He has spoken to us. It is a progressive process. He entrusts the small things to us first, then moves us to the larger. I was like many today who are so focused on seeking the activity of God rather than seeking God Himself. Hebrews tells us that God rewards those who diligently seek Him. In the Old Testament we are told, “But if from there you seek the Lord your God, you will find Him if you look for Him with all your heart and with all your soul” (Deut. 4:29).

I realized if I was going to hear God’s voice, I had to make time to seek Him and hear Him. I had to spend focused time alone reading, studying, and seeking His face only. Jesus set the model for this when He often left the crowds to be alone and seek His heavenly Father. I also had to tune my “radio” to His frequency. Static comes into that frequency when I am disobedient. My level of seeking determines the power of my “radio” to reach Him. The more I seek Him, the more I hear Him. Seek the Lord today so that you may be empowered by His presence.

Giving Him The Key

I read this beautiful prayer and story from a n email that I forgot I subscribed to. I decided to stop and read it and loved it so much that I thought I should share it with you. I also want to share my views on it, so here goes:

Today’s Prayer
Dear God, I pray that my work will be a lasting monument to your faithfulness in my life. Whether it is taking care of children, comforting a grieving neighbor, visiting a sick friend, teaching a class, developing a special project, managing money, or whatever the task, God show me if it is bringing glory to You. If it is not, help me to recognize how and what I should be doing or not doing. If it is, then give me the strength to keep on doing what pleases You. Please give me the desire and faith to give the first fruits of my increase to you. May you be glorified, my God, the source of all blessing. In Jesus’ name, amen.


Giving Him the Key

Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with Me. Revelation 3:20

A friend of mine tells the story of an encounter he had with a very important government official – the head of state for a country. In the course of some meetings with my friend, the official came up to him and said, “I perceive that there is a difference between you and me. Is it because I come from a different denomination?” My friend began to explain why there was a difference.

“If you were to come to my home, I would invite you in as an honored guest. As my guest, you would enjoy everything I had in my home. However, you would still be a guest. You would not have the keys to the home, and your authority in that home would be merely as a guest. However, if I said to you that I am turning over my home to you and you now have the keys to my home, I would be your servant.” My friend continued, “This is the difference between you and me. You have merely invited Jesus into your home as a guest. I have given Jesus the keys to my home [heart] and I am his servant.”

“How can I do this too?” the man replied.

“All you have to do is invite Him in as the new owner.”

The man did this and is now allowing Jesus to rule and reign in every detail of his life.

So often many of us enter a relationship with God that brings us salvation. This is the gospel of salvation. But what God really desires for us is to experience the gospel of the Kingdom. He wants us to experience His power and presence every day of our lives and to see His hand at work in us. This only happens when we give Him the key to our life; He must be more than an honored guest.

Where are you today? Has your life with God been more like an honored-guest relationship, or does He have the key to your life?

Wasn’t That Interesting?

I really loved this. The prayer was beautiful. After I read this it made me realize how I needed to let God take full control of every aspect of my life. I do ask Him to come into my heart and to have control of my life, but I never asked Him to control every single aspect of it and the decisions I make. Reading this has made me realize that I should honor God and it’s ok for me to do so, but I need Him to control everything. I do trust Him so I know that I/my life is in good hands ๐Ÿ™‚

I hope that this gives you something to think about,

A Beautiful Prayer To Share

JesusWhen I first read this on Facebook I knew that it was one of the most beautiful things ever. Today I think that I am going to let this prayer stand alone and not write a lot of text to support it because it’s strong already. This prayer is very personal to you and your family so it’s only fair that I set you with a little task (if you choose to accept it ๐Ÿ˜‰ ). I want you to pray this prayer and share it with your family and friends. I think that it is a lovely way to show them that you care about them and to encourage them that God does too, even if it’s not a special occasion.

I hope that this encourages your family/friends and helps them to draw closer to God even more if they are not already. Just keep praying!

I hope you have a lovely day,

From Nadine

Thoughts to Ponder

“God doesn’t remove all our imperfections but He makes us beautiful by shining through them”

“The most valuable commentary on the Bible is a Godly Life”

“God’s judgment is certain, but so is His mercy”

“Those who’ve been rescued from sin are best able to help in the rescue of others”

“Do all the good, you can, in all the ways that you can, for all the people you can, while you can”

I think that today’s theme is all about our character. I strive to have a character that best reflects God because who wouldn’t want to be as loving as Him? Also it is having a good character that makes God happy. He doesn’t want us to be horrible to each other because that’s not what He made us for.

How are we to tell the good news to people if we are ugly on the inside and are always miserable and don’t want to share anything with anyone because we don’t like them? We can’t. We should follow in the path that Jesus laid out for us because He loves us. If we love Jesus we should love others because that’s what He does.

I love God and I believe that He is so so good to me and you. It’s amazing that even though we are all imperfect he will shine through us if we allow Him and if we really want to be like Him and set a good example. I hope you understand what I mean ๐Ÿ™‚

I know that everyone’s views are different, so if you have a different opinion or if you can better explain what I am trying to get across, then please leave a comment below ๐Ÿ™‚

I hope that you all have a good night and that you remember to let God into your heart through prayer and ask Him to let Himself be seen in you rather than our sinful selves.

God bless,

From Nadine
