Praying Grandmas

“When I call to remembrance the genuine faith that is in you, which dwelt first in your grandmother Lois and your mother Eunice, and I am persuaded is in you also.” 2 Timothy 1:5

Oh, when this lovely couple said I looked like their granddaughter reminded me of praying for my grandchildren. You’ve been there praying for those who the Lord brings to mind.

Daddy God, it’s nice to know we can pray for those we love and You hear

 

 

Veterans – We Love You

“For who will heed you in this matter? Bus as his part is who goes down to the battle, so shall his part be who stays by the supplies; they shall share alike.

“So it was, from that day forward, he made it a statute and an ordinance for Israel to this day.”                              1 Samuel 30:24-25

Heavenly Father, we lift up to You, our brothers and sisters in arms, in Jesus’ name, please remove the dark cloud of lies.  Restore their identity in You, because You’ve made them for a purpose, a hope and a future.

 

 

Change in the Weather

Suddenly realize God gave me freedom. I breathe. New season. Look at all God’s done, His daily benefits.

“According as His divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him that hath called us to glory and virtue:” 2 Peter 1:3 (KJV)

Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching.” 2 Timothy 4:2

Father God, please give a new season to us as we believe in You and Your infinite mercy.

Lord, Bless My Enemies

Give good health, mental clarity, peace in their heart, strong faith in You, remembrance of Your Word (John 14) at the right times, visions & dreams to comfort & guide.

Restore all that the locusts ate (Joel 2:28), all that was lost.  Make “all things beautiful in its time,” (Ecc 3:11). and “work all things together for good,” (Rom 8:28) may they love You with the highest Love.

“But to you who are listening I say: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, 28 bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you.” Luke 6:27-28 (NIV)

“The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners,” Isaiah 61:1 (NIV)

Divine Friendships

Dear Lord, thank You for this warm, richness of divine love from my friends.  When they or I need, You pull us together though we may be miles apart.  Remembering prayers, joys & hardships over the years.

Thank You for new friends and the funny things we share and how we meet.  Thank You for renewed friendships we rediscover each other further along the river of life, and welcome the joy in common bonds.

“I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you.”                    John 15:15

“A man who has friends must himself be friendly, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.”      Proverbs 18:24

Immediate Obedience

“And as He walked by the Sea of Galilee, He saw Simon and Andrew his brother casting a net into the sea; for they were fishermen. Then Jesus said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you become fishers of men.” They immediately left their nets and followed Him.

When He had gone a little farther from there, He saw James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, who also were in the boat mending their nets. And immediately He called them, and they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired servants, and went after Him.”                 Mark 1:16-20

Dear Lord, make us bold in worshipping and honoring You, to follow You and obey Your voice immediately, in Jesus’ name.

 

 

The Two Doors Were of Olive Wood

; and he carved on them figures of cherubim, palm trees, and open flowers, and overlaid them with gold; and he spread gold on the cherubim and on the palm trees.”

1 Kings 6:32

Good Lord, Solomon tried to replicate Your dwelling place with beautiful carvings overlaid with gold, but it can’t match Your true glory. Your word says everything on earth is a copy of what’s in heaven. We lovingly wait to see You, dear God.

 

The Best – God’s Best

I pray you have a blessed New Year!  God’s best is to hear Him for ourselves.  God is so awesome and loves His children more than anyone of us can fully know on earth.

Life’s full of trials, it’s a promise, also He is always with us & will never leave us.

We each must leave our Elijah’s and Moses’ and work with God on our own.

Remember the nameless prophet in 1 Kings 13:

Vs. 9, “For so it was commanded me by the word of the Lord, saying, ‘You shall not eat bread, nor drink water, nor return by the same way you came.’ ” 

Vs. 21, 22, “And he cried out to the man of God who came from Judah, saying, ‘Thus says the Lord: “Because you have disobeyed the word of the Lord, and have not kept the commandment which the Lord your God commanded you, but you came back, ate bread, and drank water in the place of which the Lord said to you, ‘Eat no bread and drink no water,’ your corpse shall not come to the tomb of your fathers.”
