Prayer for Friday, 2/14

OldOldTunes-ThumbnailMy soul lifts up praises to you day and night. As my Creator, you are the God of my life, my soul, my being. You are all I need to exist. Without you, the world is formless and empty just as it was at the beginning.  You give my life form and substance. You give me a reason to be, to live, to die. You are beyond the finiteness of my comprehension. Oh, how I wish I could understand you more.

Ah, thank you, my Lord, for your simple Word. You never leave me guessing what you are doing or wanting or saying. I can just follow your Words with simple, childlike faith. When I read it and meditate on it, I feel as though I am sitting at the foot of your very throne. You are reading to me, and looking down at me to make sure I’m still paying attention. And you smile.  Thank you, too, for sleep. When I awake each day, I am full of gratitude for chances to start all over again. You are, indeed, the God of second chances. Keep smiling, Lord. I am smiling with you.

Prayer for Thursday 2/13

Bible Puzzles-Cover-ThumbnailI praise you, king of my life, enthroned on my heart, crowned with my love, armed with my devotion. Make my mouth my hands, my feet yours. You alone deserve all honor, admiration, and esteem.  You alone made the world, made mankind, then placed in us your very breath of life. You, my Maker, are my beginning and ending. You are my eternity.

Thank you for loving me and going through all you did to save my eternal soul from hell.  Nothing was too much for you to save me. May I never take it for granted. As I grow older, I ponder it more and more.  Such love is as far beyond my understanding as the trillions of galaxies out there.  It is deeper than all the oceans.  Your love is so complex, I will never be able to comprehend even a corner of it. Such wonder. Such unconquerable love! My heart is full of gratitude. I do not deserve it. I bow at your feet and worship you.

Prayer for Monday 2/3

Road to Heaven-COVER-KINDLE-THUMBNAILI praise you, my God, for your stubborn love, your patient, protective, persistent love. A love that never lets go of me. You are my joy in the morning, my courage during the day, my peace at night. You are the air I breathe, the bread I eat, the songs I hear. My praises fly on expanded wings to you. How I long to be with you in your home someday. It will happen, my Lord. I know it will happen. 

Thank you for going through so much to save me from problems that are my own doing. You straighten out my messes and turn them into butterflies and roses and gentle waters. Thank you for helping me sense the problems of others so I can soothe their aching hearts with a mutual tear, a smile, a happy word, a walk together.

My heart overflows with enraptured gratitude for your Bible so I can know and understand you even with my finite mind. Thank you for materializing your Words and walking among us so we could see your example of stubborn loyalty to truth and love. You never faltered, all the way to suffering in my place and, despite your agony, standing up defiantly to Satan.  The blood ransom you paid Satan to free us:  He didn’t think you would pay it. He underestimated the power of love and divine clemency.  Ah, rapturous thoughts of gratitude.

Road to Heaven-COVER-KINDLE-THUMBNAILTHE ROAD TO HEAVEN is much like Was Jesus (Why Evil?).  It begins in the Garden of Eden and ends in Heaven. It puts together scriptures we have always known about but often do not see quite clearly. Over and over the Bible tells us Jesus ransomed us.  Ransomed us from who? Who was holding us captive?  And what did the Evil One want as ransom in exchange for releasing us?  Give a copy to friends who aren’t interested in worshiping God but still expect to go to heaven.  They do not worship and thank God for what he went through to free them from Satan’s jaws.

Prayer for Friday 1/31

Was Jesus God-COVER-kindle-thumbnailHow can I praise you enough, Jehovah, my Maker, my Love, my Life?  You are all that I am, all that I need, all that I long for. And to think that, of the thousands praying to you right now, you hear me! Ah, to comprehend you completely. I know it is not possible with my finite mind. I am restless to see you someday in your realm–in the heavenly realm.  Someday I will slip away from earth and, with a whisper and a sigh, I will enter your presence, and understand.  Until then, my soul will praise you.

Jesus, you were God’s presence in the pillar out in the wilderness those forty years long ago. You were in the water of life that flowed from the rock for thirsty nomads. You were in the bread that fell from heaven for your hungry people.  Finally, you were in the body of Jesus, the man. How great you are. Satan’s ego makes him and everything he does ugly.  But you!  The God of Existence lowers himself in earthly forms to help us understand.  Why?  Love!  You are always with me in whatever form I need. I think you are also in the curiosity of a child, the courage of the handicapped, the voice of a singer. In that other realm, you are the sword that overcomes Satan, the truths that expose Satan, the Life and Love that scares Satan silly. You cannot win, Satan! The holy God is stronger and will be victorious over you in the true war of the worlds. I am on his side and will always thank him for fighting you in a way I cannot.  Such love from my Maker.  I thank you for all you do for me, but it is never enough.  Will it ever be?

Was Jesus God-COVER-kindle-thumbnailWAS JESUS GOD (WHY EVIL?) puts together scriptures we have always known about but often do not see quite clearly.  We people say they are saved they say they get to go to heaven.  But we are not saved to anything.  When we are saved from drowning, we are not saved to the shore; we are saved from the water.  So, who or what were we saved from?  Over and over the Bible tells us Jesus ransomed us.  Ransomed us from whom? Who was holding us captive?  And what did the Evil One want in exchange for releasing us? This book answers questions like this in logical order and ends with the glories of our eternity with God.  This book is a must-read for everyone.  My heart and soul and — yes, my logic — went into this book.  To BUY NOW, click a book cover or paste this……….  https://amzn.to/2S6i4JQ

Prayer for Friday 1/24

0-BOOK 4-FOLK HERO-Child'sCartoon-MediumI adore you, Jehovah, God of the universe and God of my heart, my soul, my very being. I will spend my days searching your Word to follow you closer and know you better. When I read your words, I am filled with awe and wonder. You thought of everything to include in it for me. Some is advice, but most are examples of others who rose or fell and why they did. Ah, Lord God, you are the ultimate example of rising and never falling. You are what I strive to be. I will never rise that high, I know this. So, I will continue to worship you. Now. Forever.

Thank you, Jesus, for being my Passover Lamb. You died so I wouldn’t have to. Now, every Sunday I eat the symbol of your body and think of the sins ~ my sins ~ that caused all your mental and physical anguish. I take a sip of the symbol of your blood.  How could I ever take your precious blood for granted? The cup ~ your blood drained from your body ~ was all for me. All for me!  I fall at your feet and wash them with the tears of my remorse and wipe those tears away as you did my sins. You are my hero.
