Prayer Request July 2014

It is summer time and for many of you that also means time for a well deserved vacation. That usually involves traveling from one destination to another and participating in activities you normally don't do. You may not consider this, but you are putting yourself more at risk of injuries or for finding yourself in a dire situation.

Faith goes a long ways. God will keep us safe and He doesn't put more on us than we can bear. That doesn't mean we can throw our caution by the wayside. We do have the responsibility to carry out our part and avoid putting ourselves and/or others in danger.

Let's keep an eye out and God will see to the rest!

Philippians 2:4
Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others.

Prayer Request June 2014

I can't help but wonder sometimes why things happen the way they do and for what reason. That doesn't last long. Whatever occurs happens for a reason and I already know that the reason will be revealed in God's appointed time.

Armed with that knowledge, what is the purpose in wasting your time by fretting over and dwelling on it? The best thing is to ask yourself; 'What would Jesus do?' and carry on in His footsteps. Eventually, everything will fall into place and turn out for the best!

2 Peter 1:2
Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord,

Prayer Request May 2014

Have you noticed how fear and doubt always throw a wrench in the works? When you don't want something to happen, you do everything you can to prevent that. Oddly enough, the actions you take as preventative measures actually ensure your fear will come to fruition.

It is always better taking a positive approach instead of a negative one. Try working for what you want in love, hope and faith. If it is God's permissive will, it will happen in His appointed time. If it is not, than have faith; all will work out for the best!

Hebrews 11:6
But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.

Prayer Request April 2014

It is said that good things will happen to those who wait. That is especially true when you know you have done everything you could that was for the best, and there is nothing else left for you to do.

Those are the times when you have to give it over to God and place it in His capable hands. Practice patience and keep on praying. When it is in God's permissive will, all is going to be resolved in His time and the way He knows will be best.

Maybe we ought to do it more often; let go and let God!

Matthew 7:8
For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.

Prayer Request March 2014

We don't like to think about it and we sure don't want to talk about it, but we all know our life on this earth will come to an end when God sees fit. It is not easy when we have to go on without our loved ones. Our hearts are heavy with sadness and the empty spot they leave behind hurts tremendously.

Many have been called home and because of God's greatest gift of all to us we know we will see them again one day. He made it simple and easy for us to have eternal life and be reunited with our loved ones. To God be the glory!

John 20:31
but these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name.

Prayer Request February 2014

Life is full of choices. We are confronted with them every day. Most of those choices are rather simple and their impact is minimal, but there are situations where they can be life-altering or have a great effect on others around us.

These effects can either be positive or negative and may not always be noticeable right away. It is wise to give due consideration to what the results of our choices could be and it is essential that our actions are based upon God's word and guidance!

Hebrews 10:24
And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works,

Prayer Request January 2014

A very Happy and blessed New Year to all of you!

It is always a surprise what this year has got in store for us. Some of these surprises may be pleasant and some may not be. We may encounter situations we don't like, have to deal with sicknesses we don't want, and get into arguments we could have done without. We just don't know, but God does.

One thing is for sure; it all depends on how we handle all those situations. We can deal with them according to our human nature, or approach and deal with them Christ-like. The difference is like night and day; the first will only aggravate things, while the outcome of the latter is always for the best.

It is a new year and if you haven't done it yet you may want to approach it in a new light. God is and has the answer to everything!

2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.

Prayer Request December 2013

I hope all of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving Day and were able to enjoy and share all God's abundant blessings with your loved ones.

Although things may not always turn out the way we had anticipated or expected or in times of turmoil and problems, when blessings are overshadowed or hidden from us, they are present. Sometimes they are quite obvious, sometimes we have to look for them.

In the last case, it usually comes down to taking the time, finding, and counting your blessings. When you do so, you will be pleasantly surprised and conclude there is so much to be thankful for.

God always ensures there are blessings galore, in every situation!

Psalm 107:1
Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever.

Prayer Request October 2013

You may have encountered and experienced the following situation more then you would like or even more times than you could handle; you bend over backwards to help someone out, just to be treated with disrespect, disregard, and are given hurt in return.

It is often very difficult to deal with those circumstances and the people involved, but comfort and wisdom are found in and with God. Retaliation is neither an option, nor the solution. Love and prayers are!

Luke 6:28
bless those who curse you, and pray for those who spitefully use you.

Prayer Request September 2013

There is so much going on these days which might be scary or troublesome. It may pertain to your life, the things going on in the world around you, or both. The tendency to act on fear is great, but anything that is not done out of love, hope, and faith is a recipe for failure.

We shouldn't even be surprised hearing about, witnessing, and experiencing all the turmoil. The Bible already warns us about all the things that will occur before the return of Christ and it should not increase our fear. It should increase our hope and faith!

Matthew 24:6
And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

Prayer Request August 2013

There is so much going on that there are times when my head is spinning. I know I am not an exception to the rule; we all experience days when our attention is required and demanded from all sides. The tendency to get overwhelmed is great and some things may be overlooked, forgotten, or simply postponed.

All three happened to me. I overlooked and forgot and put off things which can easily be done when everything has calmed down again. The latter presents no problem, but the first two might have caused some frustration and irritation with others. All I can do is explain the situation, hope for their understanding, and ask their forgiveness.

I am just happy to know that God already has!

Psalm 86:5
For You, Lord, are good, and ready to forgive, And abundant in mercy to all those who call upon You.

Prayer Request July 2013

We all have our own way of approaching, doing and resolving things and there is nothing wrong with that. God has blessed each one of us with different gifts, skills, and abilities, and we put those to a use which works best for us.

What works for us doesn't necessarily mean it works for others and we have to be mindful not to impose our way onto them. It is one thing to try and force them to do things our way, but it is an entirely different situation to encourage and help them find solutions to their problems.

We don't know best, but God does. Through faith and prayers answers and solutions will be provided!

Romans 12:16
16 Be of the same mind toward one another. Do not set your mind on high things, but associate with the humble. Do not be wise in your own opinion.
