Pray for God’s Will to Be Done

Matthew 6 10

Verse of the Day:  Matthew 6:10

Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

If you’re not sure how to pray or what to pray for, start by praying for God’s will to be done in your life. Praying for God’s will to be done is an act of faith because we know and believe that God’s will is good and perfect and therefore, we trust in His plans and His will for us. Pray that your own will, heart and actions would conform to God’s will by making Him the center of your life. Don’t be intimidated by long, loud or eloquent prayers.  Prayer doesn’t have to be formal or full of big, fancy words it just has to be from your heart. Have a sincere conversation with God and pray knowing and believing that He hears you.

My Helper

Psalm 54 4

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 54:4

Behold, God is my helper: the Lord is with them that uphold my soul.

Throughout the Bible there are stories of people who were in difficult situations but they made it through because they trusted in the Lord. God is the same yesterday, today and forever. He helps those who put their faith, hope and trust in Him. If we are for Him, He is for us and if He is for us, we have nothing to fear. Confidently and expectantly look to God for help in all circumstances. His help is always on time and it’s always what we need.

Hope for Today

Romans 15 13

Verse of the Day:  Romans 15:13

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Without hope one feel helpless, alone and powerless. As believers we know that our God is the source of all hope. Hope for healing, hope for peace, hope for joy and hope for the future here on earth and in heaven. All hope comes from knowing, believing and trusting God. By His love, grace and mercy God has given us the precious gift of hope through the power of the Holy Spirit. If you feel hopeless, seek a relationship with the author of all hope, the Lord our God.

Personal Requests

James 4 2

 

Verse of the Day:  James 4:2

You do not have because you do not ask God.

 

God already knows your needs before you ask (Matthew 6:8) but He still wants to hear your request and see you exercise your faith.  If God did everything for you automatically you would soon take it for granted. Coming to God in prayer for your needs show your dependence on Him. If there is something you need, go directly to the source.  Take it to God in prayer, be bold and confident with your personal requests and always pray with the right motives.

Honor Her

Proverbs 31 31

 

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 31:31

Honor her for all that her hands have done, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.

 

Mothers deserve to be appreciated and honored for all they do for their families.  Much of what they do is unseen and undervalued. They make sacrifices without hesitation all in the name of love. Give thanks to God for your mother and ask Him to bless her in a special way.

God Hears You

1 John 5 14

 

Verse of the Day: 1 John 5:14

This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.

 

Pray with the full confidence that God hears you, He is faithful and He is a loving God.  God hears all your prayers and He answers each one with a yes, no or wait. The key words here are “according to His will”.  You must always pray “according to His will” and ask that His will be done, not yours, for He alone knows His plans for you. No matter what the answer is, know that He has heard your prayer.

You Are Precious

isaiah 43 4

 

Verse of the Day:  Isaiah 43:4

Because you are precious in my eyes, you are honored, and I love you.

 

Are you seeing yourself the way God sees you?  You are God’s own creation and we know that He doesn’t make mistakes.  You have worth, you are a jewel and you belong to God.  You have been adopted into His own family, you are His child and an heir to His kingdom.  God has given you gifts and talents to use for His purpose because He has a plan for you.  He loves you so much He gave His Only Son so you could have eternal life. Stop worrying about the way the world sees you and start seeing yourself the way God sees you, as His precious daughter.

10 Days of Thanksgiving – Day 6: Thankful for Spiritual Freedom

Psalm 100 4.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 100:4

Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.

 

I am thankful for the freedom to be able to enter into the house of the Lord to praise and worship my Lord and Savior.  Yes, we have a constitutionally protected right to religious freedom and that’s great, but I’m talking about the spiritual freedom we received when Jesus died on the cross and paid the price for our sins.  I’m talking about abiding in God’s truth which has set us free from a life of sin and death.  Because of God’s love and mercy, we can have a relationship with Him, we can come into his presence to praise and worship Him and for that I am thankful.
