Happy Mother’s Day

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 31:28

Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.

If you are blessed to have your mother in your life, honor her as the Lord commands. Pray for her and ask God to bless and protect her always. Be devoted and respectful, affectionate and loving for she won’t always be here. If there are grievances between you, ask God to help you forgive each other. If you are blessed to be a mother, pray that you would be a good example for your children and that they would honor you in the same way you have honored your own mother.

Heavenly Father, we come before You today to pray for all mothers. We ask that You would bless them in a special way. May they know how truly amazing they are, may they feel loved and appreciated for all they do, and may their lives be filled with joy and happiness. In Jesus’ Name, Amen

Honor Her

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, by faith, with hope, humility and patience. Let the fruits of her labor be praised both privately and publicly. Give thanks to God for your mother and ask Him to bless her in a special way.

Heavenly Father, Help us to honor our mothers for everything they do and for the sacrifices they make daily. Lord, grant them strength, wisdom and a long and healthy life. In Jesus’ name, Amen

A Confident Woman of God

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 31:25    

Strength and honor are her clothing; she is confident about the future.           

A virtuous woman of God carries herself with strength and honor in her attitude and her behavior. She is in control of her actions and does everything with purpose and uprightness. She is respected for more than her outward appearance, she is respected for her godliness and holiness. She is confident because she knows God is with her and in control of her life and the future.

Heavenly Father, thank You for the confidence I have in knowing that I am a daughter of the King and that no matter what happens You are with me. Help me to be the virtuous woman of noble character that You created me to be. I love You, Lord with all my heart and soul. Amen

Receive Your Blessing

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 81:10         

I am the Lord your God, who brought you up out of Egypt. Open wide your mouth and I will fill it. 

God is the same yesterday, today, and forever. Long ago He brought the Hebrews out of Egypt and out of bondage and He has done the same thing for you. He has brought you out of your bondage of sin. Now open your mouth wide with praise and thanksgiving for your deliverer. Pray with boldness and confidence in your God asking Him for what you need and He will bless you according to your faith. If you want to receive your blessing you have to trust and believe that the Lord is able to fill your cup, and not just fill your cup but overflow it. Open wide and receive your blessing!

Heavenly Father, we praise You and thank You for Your goodness and mercy. We thank You for Your promises that are the same yesterday, today and forever. Lord, You know what we need before we even ask and so we come before You with boldness because we are confident that You will bless us with everything we need and more. We trust in You and believe that You are able to do all things for those who love You. In Jesus’ Name, Amen

National Day of Prayer

Verse of the Day: 2 Chronicles 7:14         

If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.   Let’s join together today to pray for our country. Our people need God’s forgiveness and restoration more than ever. Let us unite and pray for our government leaders and all those in positions of authority. Pray for doctors, nurses, researchers and all others who have tirelessly worked to save us from the Covid-19 pandemic. Pray for our businesses, schools and churches who have also been adversely affected. Pray for God’s mercy and grace, direction and wisdom. Most importantly, pray for our people to know how much God loves them.

Heads or Tails?

Verse of the Day:  Deuteronomy 28:13         

The Lord will make you the head, not the tail. If you pay attention to the commands of the Lord your God that I give you this day and carefully follow them, you will always be at the top, never at the bottom.       

God wants to bless you. He wants you to be successful and fruitful. Deuteronomy 28:13 says that “IF” you choose to be obedient to His Word, He will bless you and you will always be at the top and never at the bottom. God will never force you to do anything and He always leaves the choice up to you. Do you want to be the head or the tail, at the top or at the bottom? The decision is yours, you have a choice. Choose obedience to God’s commands and find favor instead of choosing disobedience and condemnation.

Lord, help me to make the right choices for my life that will honor You. Help me to be obedient to Your Word in every decision I make. Amen

May the Lord Be with You

Verse of the Day:  2 Corinthians 13:14

May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.

May the fourth has become a day of observance for Star Wars fans. It is a play on the phrase “May the Force Be with You”.  But life is not a movie, you do however, get to choose the ending. Until that day, I pray that you would come to know the endless love of God, the Father. I pray that you would know the redeeming grace that comes through believing in the Son, Jesus Christ and I pray that you would receive the fellowship and power that comes with receiving the gift of the Holy Spirit. May the Lord be with you always.

Thank You, Lord, for the grace that comes from salvation through Jesus Christ. Thank You for the agape love that You have for us and thank You for the gift of the Holy Spirit that guides us, teaches us and strengthens us daily. May all that seek You find You. Amen

God’s Word is Right and True

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 33:4           

For the word of the Lord is right and true; he is faithful in all he does.           

Every word, every promise, every part of God’s Word is right and true. His commands and precepts are righteous and fair. God’s Word is an awesome display of His power, wisdom and goodness. God’s Word exists for all people equally and its path leads to heaven and happiness. We can be confident and believe every Word because He is truly faithful in all He does and keeps every promise. God is good and never changes, we can rely on this truth. He is so deserving of all praise for His righteousness, truth and faithfulness.

Thank You, God, for Your precious Word that has changed my mind, my heart, my soul and my life. Amen

I Am a Witness

Verse of the Day:  Acts 1:8    

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. 

I am a witness to God’s power changing lives through the gift of the Holy Spirit. I am no longer the same and now through the power of the Holy Spirit I am a witness to Christ’s message of love, forgiveness and salvation. The Holy Spirit will give you courage to face the enemy and to abide in God’s truth. The Holy Spirit will also give you strength to endure difficulties and to persevere so that you can testify to God’s mercy and grace for all who believe in Jesus Christ. You too are a witness and can share what the Lord has done for you.

Heavenly Father, thank You the precious gift of the Holy Spirit that changes us. I am no longer the same and have seen Your life-changing power working in me. I am a witness to Your mercy and grace and I pray for the Holy Spirit to help me share the message of salvation through Jesus Christ. Amen

Planting Seeds

Verse of the Day:  Luke 8:15 

But the seed on good soil stands for those with a noble and good heart, who hear the word, retain it, and by persevering produce a crop.    

God’s Word is like a seed that you plant everywhere you go by sharing it with others and by being an example in the way you live for Christ. Not everyone will accept God’s Word, some seeds will land on the path, some on rocky ground and others among the thorns. Not every seed will take root and produce. You never know whose heart the seed will take root in, but the more seeds you plant, the bigger the harvest.

Heavenly Father, thank You for Your love and mercy, thank You for every good thing that comes from heaven above. Lord, bless the work of my hands, help me to be an encouragement and help me to sow seeds of love by sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ.  Amen
