Arm Lifter

 

Immortal Invisible God only wise, may your name be always praised. Lord I lift up your name on high this day. Your name is the sweetest name I know and your word is so powerful. Receive your glory O Lord. Receive your due worship, My Father. You really leave me speechless atimes as I bask in how amazing you are. Truly you are the Ancient of Days and the Rose of Sharon. Glory, glory , glory be to your Name O Lord.

Today Lord we were encouraged in church to be arm lifters. We were asked to consider how we could work together with others to do things to glorify your name. Lord in a world where we are tempted to put down others in different ways and to go it alone such a reminder is so timely. Help us to continue to realize how much we can achieve by lifting the arms of others in support and working together. Amen. (11/27/16)

Thanksgiving

 

Give thanks with a grateful heart

Give thanks to the Holy One

Give thanks because He’s given

Jesus Christ His Son… – Don Moen

 

O lord I chime in with the songwriter” O Lord my God when I in awesome wonder consider all the works thy Hands have made. I see the skies I hear the rolling thunder thy power throughout the universe displayed. Then sings my soul my Savior  God to be. How great thou art ! ” Lord you have freely given so much to us and we must be able to also freely give. Lord I thank you all the days of my life.

Lord, we live in a world where there is so much negativity and unfortunately some people only function best in it. As we approach Thanksgiving once more we want to focus again on the need for everyone to be thankful even if on the surface of it not everything has gone the way we expected. Lord, take grumpiness from our hearts and make us always find something to be thankful for. Thank you, thank you Lord. Amen (11/20/16)

Almighty and Gracious God I come before You once again to praise and adore your Name. I love to recall that you dwell in the praises of your children and no time spent worshiping you or pondering about your love and goodness can ever be a waste. You are so wonderful and I can’t find enough words to express it all. Thank you my Lord and my God.

Lord your name is peace and that is exactly what you are. We face many upheavals and so much uncertainty many a time but you Jehovah Shalom makes the difference. Please continue to give us the calm we need as we contemplate each day with all the highs and lows and challenges it brings. Continue to give us self- control and restraint as we encounter disappointments and provocations in many situations. Breathe your peace and reassurance on our nation in the aftermath of this bitter and divisive election. Thank you Lord for answered prayer. Amen (11/13/16)

Our Shepherd

 

 

O God of wonders holy is your Name. May your name be praised always. Your glory and majesty continues to be displayed in all the earth. Let the chorus of worship continue and continue. You have done so much and you continue to do so much dear Lord. I am lost for words as I praise You. Let my spirit be lifted to You O Lord my Savior, Redeemer, Friend.

Lord you are our shepherd and we do not lack any thing because you provide.Jehovah Rohi, even when we ask you only give what you will and what we actually need. You are so gracious so you do not hold back on us though we do not do the same  to our fellow men. You are the shepherd of our souls and what we commit to you, You keep for us securely. You are a shepherd who protects and the enemy has not been able to destroy us because you are always with us. Great Shepherd be with us as we go to the polls this week and guide us. Thank you so much for everything. Amen. (11/6/16)
