Tekel (we have been found wanting)

Tekel ( we have been found wanting)

 

As the deer panteth for the water

So my soul longs after You

You alone are my hearts’ desire

And I long to worship You.

 

You alone are my strength, my shield

To You alone may my spirit yield

You alone are my hearts desire

And I long to worship You – Martin J. Nystrom

 

My Lord, the Bright and Morning Star I come before you to sing praises to You. You are worthy King of kings and Lord of lords and I worship You. Lily of the valley, may your glory be over all the earth. Your Majesty my soul longs for you and you are all I desire. You are my Strength, my Shield and my Comforter without you I am nothing. Thank you Jesus for everything.

Lord God you are a patient God and you are slow to chide and swift to bless. You always call on individuals and nations who offend you to repent. When we ignore you as we often do we face your anger, we are literally weighed in the balance and found wanting. Lord may you have mercy on us as we continue to defy you daily that we may not have to face your anger. Amen.(7/17/17)

Mene (He numbers our lives)

 

 

There’s nothing worth more

That could ever come close

No thing can compare

You’re our living hope

Your presence, Lord

 

I’ve tasted and seen

Of the sweetest of loves

Where my heart becomes free

And my shame is undone

Your presence, Lord…- Francisca Battistelli

 

Blessed the Lord O my soul, I worship your holy name.  I will sing like never before because you have really blessed me. I will lift up your Name higher Great Jehovah you are wonderful. I will never get tired of proclaiming your goodness for you are a Good good Father. Thank you my Lord and Savior.

Father as we remember the psalmist encouraging us to number our days we also remember that You number our days, our hours, our weeks, our lives as well. May we not be found wanting as You continually do this. May we live to serve and please you every day so that you are glorified in our lives. Amen.( 7/10/17)

 

Give us wisdom

Give us wisdom

 

 

1 Be thou my vision, O Lord of my heart;

naught be all else to me, save that thou art –

thou my best thought, by day or by night;

waking or sleeping, thy presence my light.

 

2 Be thou my wisdom, and thou my true word;

I ever with thee and thou with me, Lord.

Thou my great Father; thine own may I be,

thou in me dwelling and I one with thee.- Mary E.Byrne

 

Blessed be the name of the Lord God of Heaven who is the King of all kings. Your kingdom is without end. You are the embodiment of all wisdom and nothing can be hid from you. Your power is awesome O God and no one can stand before You. Everything in this world is under your control. Let everything that has breath praise You because you deserve to be praised, adored and worshipped O God.

Lord there are many times when as your children we lack wisdom and we crave for it dearly. We are tempted as a first resort to seek counsel from other people and not you. This results in so many difficulties for us. Give us the inclination to always resort to you for guidance and counselling as Daniel did and not to rely on experts who may fail us. Amen.(7/2/2017)

Abba father, God of all

Keeper lover of my soul

Throughout the ages unchanging

You are perfect in all of your ways –Nathaniel Bassey

 

 

Our Father who art in heaven may your great name be praised. You have shown yourself to be truly a Father who cares. You are also a Father who gives and gives. You are a Father who is slow to chide a swift to bless. You are a Father who leads and protects. You are a Father who mentors us. You are a Father who provides constant support and that is why You sent us the Holy Spirit to be with us always. Receive your worship and adoration for you are truly our Father.

Lord as we set aside a day and time to honor our earthly fathers both natural and adopted we want to thank you for providing them to us. We also want to honor the memory of those who have passed and are no longer with us. We thank you for their lives. May you continue to help our fathers to be blessings to us and may we never forget to honor them. May you help those dads who have not for various reasons been the examples that you have expected them to be to be able to do better. Amen.(6/18/17)

 

Avoiding appearances

 

Avoiding appearances

 

When Thy soldiers take their swords,

When they speak the solemn words,

When they kneel before Thee here,

Feeling Thee, their Father, near;

These Thy children, Lord, defend;

To their help Thy Spirit send.

 

When the vows that they have made,

When the prayers that they have prayed,

Shall be fading from their hearts;

When their first warm faith departs;

These Thy children, Lord, defend;

Keep them faithful to the end. – Frances M. Owen

 

 

Father God I come before You to express my praise and admiration of you with shouts of joy and gladness of heart. You have done so much for me and you continue to do much more all the time I will make known to the nations what you have done and exalt your name forever. You are truly God without a beginning and an end and my heart and being will always continue to crave to know more of You each day. Thank you so much for all that you have revealed of yourself to us through Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. When I have You I will never lack anything Thank you Jesus for everything

Lord as your children sometimes we behave in a way that sends wrong signals to those who are trying to see you in us. You have warned us in your word to avoid every appearance of sin because this makes you unhappy with us.  Help us in the words we express and the choices we make to glorify your name always. When our actions take us from the path you have set before us help us to find our way back to you and live to glorify your name. Amen.(6/11/17)

 

Pentecost again

 

Pentecost again

 

 

1 Spirit divine, inspire our prayer

and make our hearts your home;

descend with all your gracious power;

come, Holy Spirit, come!

 

2 Come as the light; reveal our need,

our hidden failings show,

and lead us in those paths of life

where all on the righteous go. –Andrew Reed

 

Lord God Almighty I come to You today to worship and adore You. You are the Most High One and you dwell in holiness. You do so much for me and I cannot praise you enough. You are good all the time. I love you O Lord and I am so grateful to you every minute of my life. I thank you for my family and friends. I also thank you for the Holy Spirit and his continuing work in my life every day.

Lord we remember the day of Pentecost when you fulfilled your promise to send us the Comforter to dwell with us always. For many the Pentecost experience focuses on the emotional and we miss the crucial transformational piece that enabled your disciples to make a difference in their world. Lord rain on us again and make us every day into the people we need to be for a world which is dying to be influenced in an age of confusion and spiritual need. Amen.(6/4/17)
