Prayer for Saturday 1/18

Inside-COVER-lg thumbnailThe stars praise you, oh God, with their singing. The mountains praise you with their rumbling. The meadows praise you with their whisperings. The oceans praise you with their ebb and flow in tune with the rest of the universe. Ah, my Lord, to be with you without Satan always trying to lure me away from you. His lies won’t work! I will not let them. And when I am weak, you will stand between us and not let him get to me. Nothing praises Satan except the horror of emptiness and shadows and hollow egos. All things good and grand and glorious praise you now and forever.

Thank you for my family and friends. Thank you for the animals that sometimes show more love than do humans. And for birds that hop around and flutter and fly and sing to me. And the fish that wiggle and splash and sparkle. Bumpy tree bark and smooth flower pedals. And touch ~ the softness of cotton, the smoothness of silk. And knowing for sure that spring will return someday.

Inside-COVER-lg thumbnailINSIDE THE HEARTS OF BIBLE WOMEN. How would you handle having to move over and over as Sarah did? Do you think you’d have the courage to publicly stand against homosexuality, or do you always find it easier to just go along for the sake of peace as Lot’s wife did? What if two of your grown children had a falling out and refused to speak to each other for years as happened to Rebecca? Would you fall apart completely if all your children were killed in one day, your husband lost his income, or he became grotesquely ill ~ all of which faced Job’s wife?  Give to a friend or use for in a group.  To BUY NOW, click a book cover or paste this………https://amzn.to/372KHxQ

Prayer for Wednesday 1/14

00-Hero Alone-COVER-KINDLE-ThumbnailI praise you, Elohim, Creator and First Cause of all things that live, move, and have their being. You have and are all I need to survive and thrive in this world where Satan is gradually losing his claim to be the ruler. Oh, I know Christians everywhere are lamenting the growing disinterest in and even animosity toward you. But it is not true. You have thousands of thousands in hiding where Christianity is illegal who have not bowed down to the gods of self and fake religions.  Your church will never die, regardless of how often it is attacked and neglected.  Your church will only grow stronger.  I stand with them drawn to you like a magnet. You are the All Mighty.  Just as you will never die, your Bride will never die.  All praise belongs to you, all honor, glory, and adoration. I, in the strength of your ethereal love, fall at your feet and worship you.

Ah, how I thank you, God, for your Bible and pouring out your heart in it. Sharing all the pain you felt through the ages when your loved ones sinned, keeping faith in them anyway, and feeling joy when they stood up for right and returned to you. How you love me, your child, and set me on your knee so you can tell me the stories of long ago as warnings and encouragements to me today. As I read, I can imagine you smiling and nodding and whispering, “Keep reading, my child. There’s more. I put it in there just for you.”

Prayer for Friday 1/3

Pearls Cover-Palms-300dpi-ThumbnailOh, how I praise you, God of magnificent glory who does everything just right.  You made angels to be in your presence as your servants. You made us to be farther away but as your children. How you do love us. I guess sometimes I envy the angels because they are always in your presence. But they envy humans.  I am your child. Your child!  I belong to your royal family.  What honor. What privilege.  What dignity you bestow upon me. And someday, I will behold you as you are and worship you on bended knees.

Thank you, God, for all you have done for us through history. We are the center of your world as children are to a loving parent. How you grieve when we fall, and rejoice when we return. Thank you for materializing your words in the form of Jesus.  Oh, to have been able to see and touch him. I am convinced that will happen someday and I will be one with you as the golden rays of sunshine are one with the steadfast sun.

Prayer for Thursday 1/2

Golden Cover-KINDLE-thumbnailI praise you, Lord Jehovah, Creator of all things, lover of all people, and keeper of my soul. You gave me freedom of will so I could choose my own path. You gave me freedom of will to acknowledge you or not, follow you or not, love you or not. You gave me the freedom to allow you into my life, my heart, my soul.  Without this freedom I would just be a robot. If I declared I loved you, it would not be true love. True love has a choice. Such love is like an easy breeze on a warm day, like gentle snowflakes on a cold day. So, at the beginning of this new year, I proclaim my love for you.

I thank you for being with me all last year. It held surprises, of course. Among them were the many ups and downs. My dreams were dreamed and a few came true. And now I look out my window at another spectacular dawn. You have given us a new dawn how many times since you created us? Each dawn holds a promise of starting anew. You are the God of second chances. Thank you for standing by mankind no matter how bad we get. Thank you for standing by me. I know you are there and my heart bows to you in crystal gratitude.

The Wings of Time

Wings of Time

The Wings of Time

  • What was that which just flew by
  • On wings of a whisper and a sigh ~
  • The form was vague, the hues o’er cast ~
  • In to the arms of eager past?
  • Now ’tis still, it’s ceased to flee,
  • And I am amazed at what I see.
  • Hard to perceive when viewed so near ~
  • Yesterday, last week, entire year.
  • Wait!  Not yet!  Do not depart!
  • Didn’t it just recently start?
  • How can it be?  It’s out of hand.
  • Nothing worked out like I had planned.
  • No mountain I see, nor great temple.
  • The year I built was plain and simple.
  • But I reflect with kinder view ~
  • The form its shape, the colors their hue.
  • At the time I just could not see
  • The value frustrations could be to me.
  • What God and I each had in mind
  • Often differed.  What did I find?
  • I touched a life and wiped a tear,
  • I held a child and calmed a fear.
  • A word of love was passed along,
  • A happy time was framed with song.
  • So now ’tis passed, as I’ve reflected,
  • Wasn’t so bad.  And I’ve erected
  • Amidst a world of ebb and flow
  • A loving, shimmering, fleeting rainbow.
