A Prayer

A PRAYER

(January 2002)

 

This is so beautiful, it is worth the few minutes it

takes to read. Please take a moment to relax your mind

and humble your heart to focus on Christ. Allow God,

to be the only person on your mind while you read this

prayer. If we can take the time to read long jokes,

stories, etc., we should give the same respect to this

prayer. Friends that pray together, stay together.

 

Dear Lord,

I thank You for this day. I thank You for my being

able to see and to hear this morning. I’m blessed

because You are a forgiving God and and understanding

God. You have done so much for me and You keep on

blessing me. Forgive me this day for everything I

have done, said or thought that was not pleasing to

you. I ask now for our forgiveness. Please keep me

safe from all danger and harm. Help me to start this

day with a new attitude and plenty of gratitude. Let

me make the best of each and every day to clear my

mind so that I can hear from You. Please broaden my

mind that I can accept all things. Let me not whine

and whimper over things I have no control over. Let me

continue to see sin through God’s eyes and acknowledge

it as evil. And when I sin, let me repent, and confess

with my mouth my wrongdoing, and receive the

forgiveness of God. And when this world closes in on

me, let me remember Jesus’ example… to slip away

and find a quiet place to pray. It’s the best

response when I’m pushed beyond my limits.

 

I know that when I can’t pray, You listen to my heart.

Continue to use me to do Your will. Continue to bless

me that I may be a blessing to others. Keep me strong

that I may help the weak. Keep me uplifted that I may

have words of encouragement for others. I pray for

those that are lost and can’t find their way.

 

I pray for those that are misjudged and misunderstood.

I pray for those who don’t know You intimately. I pray

for those that will delete this without sharing it

with others. I pray for those that don’t believe. But

I thank you that I believe. I believe that God changes

people and God changes things. I pray for all my

sisters and brothers. For each and every family member

in their households.

 

I pray for peace, love and joy in their homes that

they are out of debt and all their needs are met. I

pray that every eye that reads this knows there is no

problem, circumstance, or situation greater than God.

Every battle is in Your hands for You to fight. I pray

that these words be received into the hearts of every

eye that sees them and every mouth that confesses them

willingly.

 

This is my prayer. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
