Give us strength, Lord
Lord your word says that we must thank you in everything. We want to thank you in all the seasons of life you take us into.
Lord we are confronted with a painful situation. We have to deal with our deep sense of loss and despair at the sudden death of a dear one at home(in Ghana). We know your Hand is in all this as you take your saints home without any notice to us. We will still cling to You and trust in your wisdom and keeping because you know what is best for all of us. Give us strength in times like these to hold on to You because we are still frail humanity despite our best efforts to remain strong. Amen (1/31/16)
Ah Lord God you have truly made the heavens and the earth. Everything is subject to your will and control even when we as puny men pretend to be in charge. You move your hand and we fall at your mercy. Lord this week-end we have seen once more your power as you manifest in the events of nature. You sent winter Storm Jonas our way and we have indeed felt helpless against the force of this blizzard. Many places lost power and some even lost their very lives. We are now counting our cost as we contemplate all that we would need to do to bring our lives to normalcy. Thank You for your protection and keeping.
Lord God it is the morning after the event and You have brought out such brilliant sunshine. As we contemplate this we see your Hand of reassurance that You have our backs in all the storm and You are going to take us through restoration. Please give us wisdom first of all and then strength in how we handle the dig out. Thank you Lord. Amen (1/23/16
Soulful expressions of a pilgrim’s journey
This is my initial post. I welcome all of you to join me on the journey that I am undertaking to walk with my Lord and my Savior through this life. This blog will be devoted mostly to my prayers, quotes(myself and others) prayerful poetry and that of others. My goal in this undertaking is to share and encourage you as you go along. I pray about virtually everything -my problems, that of others, politics, my sports teams etc.I may also share from the archives of a spiritual diary I kept years ago. I am trying to focus on praising God as much as possible this year so you may see quite some praise. The Lord has been good to me and I want to use all the gifts He has graciously endowed me with. Please contribute with comments to help me and do not forget to drop a prayer my way I thank you in advance.
“Oh Lord God I thank you for this day and year. You have been so good to me. I can only say thank you, thank you. Please guide my step each day. I commit this week into your Hands . Please take charge and may everyday be to you glory. Thank you Father. Amen”-mko-1/17/16
