Father in the name of Jesus. Lord I just wanted to say thank you. Thank you for who you are. You are God and there’s nothing to be said to that. Given that you are who you say you are, there are some who still do not know you.
Sometimes, we forget where and who is our source. We resort to everyone else but you. Our communication line is through prayer, which connects us to you. Oh Lord, we attempt to fight a spiritual warfare with our physical senses. But on today, we recognize the devices of the enemy. If he can get us to respond carnally, knowing that we are limited in power, then he wins. Not TUHDAY!
We have been here before. We have been through uncertainty. We have gone through tragedy. We have felt as if we would not make it, but today…it will be different. There are more with us than against us, when we invoke the Angels of battle. Every time, you have come to our rescue.
…GOD, your God, will restore everything you lost; he’ll have compassion on you; he’ll come back and pick up the pieces from all the places where you were scattered. No matter how far away you end up, GOD, your God, will get you out of there.”Deuteronomy 30:3-5 MSG
I ask if you would continue to be a shelter and place of refuge during the day for us. We NEED to be more like You. We all need to be more like you. Give us the strength to endure the trials in our lives. Help us to love the people who are hard to love and to forgive the people who have hurt us, taken advantage of us or maybe even abused us, and help those who feel hopeless. Burn away the sin in our life, so that we may live for you. Create a clean heart in us and renew our minds. Fill us with your Spirit so that we may reflect your character.
We are thankful for your love that you continue to demonstrate consistently and without failure.
Forgive me, when I have said “no” when you said yes. I say yes. Yes to it all. Even when I’m scared. I say yes. I’m more afraid of life without you than the “no” to my purpose. I give you my yes. Even when the work you require of me falls beyond my level of comfort. I recognize that someone’s soul requires comforting which requires me to stretch. When I am weak, you are strong through me.We need to realize what this is all about. Life is not about what we can do, but who we can reach. Who we can reap. Who we can impact. Who we can SAVE!
We desire to be closer to you. It may be uncomfortable – but yet any change is uncomfortable. This, however, is worth it. I humbly ask that you accept this prayer. In Jesus name, amen.
“To those who are called, sanctified by God the Father, and preserved in Jesus Christ: Mercy, peace, and love be multiplied to you. But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. And on some have compassion, making a distinction; but others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire, hating even the garment defiled by the flesh.” Jude 1:2, 20-23 NKJV
