Taking our own life

Taking our own life

 

Open now the crystal fountain,
Whence the healing stream doth flow;
Let the fire and cloudy pillar
Lead me all my journey through.
Strong Deliv’rer, strong Deliv’rer,
Be Thou still my Strength and Shield;
Be Thou still my Strength and Shield.- William Williams

 

 

Almighty victorious conquering Lord, You are Immortal, Invisible God only wise. You are always accessible and I will stand in awe of You. As long as I live I will sing your praises because you show your love to me in so many ways. I am so very grateful to You.

Lord there are times we feel so down in the dumps and the darkness looms large in our eyes that it becomes the only light we see. We are then prompted to take our own lives to end our ‘suffering’. Lord please in such times may we hang on to you no matter what voice we hear even if we don’t see a solution immediately. Lord may we not end our own life. Amen. (6/11/18)

How marvelous! How wonderful!

And my song shall ever be:

How marvelous! How wonderful!

Is my Savior’s love for me! – Charles H.Gabriel

 

I come into your presence O Lord with a heart full of nothing but thanksgiving. I am rendered completely speechless as I watch all that You do for me. You continue to wow me with the way you answer every detail of my prayer I prayed to You. What a God ! What a Lord ! Thank you.

Lord there are times when some people threaten us with harm or evil and we get so scared that we are unhappy. Lord help us in such times to remember that we are in your powerful Hands and no one can do us any harm. Amen.(6/2/18)

That we tell the truth

How wonderful, how glorious

My Savior’s scars victorious

My chains are gone, my debt is paid

From death to life and grace to grace- Joel Houston/ Chris Davenport

 

Lord I want to give a testimony to your glory. I testify of your goodness. I testify of your faithfulness. I testify of your might. I testify of your generosity. I testify of your caring. I testify of your healing power. I testify of your protection. Wow what a Mighty God! Wow what a Great God! You have no challenger. Everything bows before You.

Lord it is becoming clear that a number of your children struggle with issues of integrity – we just can’t be trusted to tell the truth at all times. The result is that we lose trust and don’t honor your Name. Help us to tell the truth every time even if it would cost us to do so. Amen.(5/26/18)

Jesus at the center of it all

Jesus at the center of it all

From beginning to the end

It will always be, it’s always been You Jesus

Jesus –Israel Houghton

 

My Lord God I thank you for all you are doing for me. You are indeed the Lord Almighty and you have no equal. I join the songwriter to say “Lord I am amazed by You” and for all you do for me. I asked you to do something yesterday and you did more than I expected. Thank you Lord for what you did and continue to do.

Lord many a time we are tempted to compete with our brothers and sisters in the faith instead of working together and this brings so much conflict. Help us to remember that we should be one and work together so we defeat the enemy and achieve victory. Amen (5/20/18)

Thank a teacher

Thank a teacher

 

You’re all I want

You’re all I’ve ever needed

You’re all I want

Help me know you are near – Michael W. Smith

 

His Majesty, the King of kings and Lord of lords we come to praise and worship You because you do so much for us. Without you we are nothing and we don’t want to forget that. Thank you for all the many answers to prayer you have provided for us this week we cannot say thank you enough.

Lord as we celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week we want to thank you for all teachers in the land and elsewhere. We realize that we have had teachers at home and especially at school and without their devotion and service we would not be who we are today and able to contribute to society. Lord please continue to bless them every day. Amen.( 5/12/14)

What else should I say?

Lord I come I confess

Bowing here I find my rest

And without You I fall apart

You’re the one that guides my heart– Christy Nockels, Daniel Carson, Jesse Reeves, Kristian Stanfill and Matt Maher

 

Woohoo, I am speechless because you continue to wow me with all that You do for me. Today has been a tremendous one. Oh You are so good and as your word says you indeed do far more than we can ever ask or think. What I asked for you to do You did more –you really put the icing on the cake. Oh You rock big time my dear Lord! I will never be able to finish thanking You.

Lord there are times we want to express our gratefulness to You for something in particular you did or all you do for us but then we do not seem to be able to come up with adequate words. Help us to remember that You are not looking for a formula or some special words but just for us to say thanks in any way that we are able. Amen. (5/5/18)

Good on the money

Good on the money

 

 

 Bigger than all the shadows that fall across my path,

 

God is bigger than any mountain that I can or cannot see.

 

He’s bigger than all the confusion, bigger than anything;

 

God is bigger than any mountain that I can or cannot see.-Gordon Jensen

 

 

Lord I look back on the week at all you have done and all I can say is thank you my dear Lord. You are really a God who protects His children and I experience it all the time. I remember when you delivered me from an accident and I know you were right there. I did not feel so well and I asked you to heal me and you did. When Satan wanted to frighten me you reminded me of his lies. What else can I say? You are good all the time. Thank You.

Lord sometimes I forget the many promises You have made to me and the fact that you never fail so I feel miserable instead of trusting You. Help me to remember in such times that your promises are good on the money. Amen (4/28/18)
