Prayer Request February 2015

I suspect that most of us already found out that things hardly ever go and work out the way we want or plan. We encounter road bumps, pitfalls, detours, and sometimes even U-turns or dead ends. We may have to start over or retrace our steps.

That can be disappointing, but don't let it discourage you; you may have learned something along the way which will be helpful in the future. We ought to be thankful we are back on track and set out with renewed hope and faith that this time we will get there!

Psalm 31:24
Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart, All you who hope in the Lord.

Prayer Request December 2014

It is a busy month. The decorating, shopping, gift-wrapping, cooking, and a gazillion other things are taking up every spare moment we have. We are getting ready to remember, celebrate, and be thankful for God's greatest gift to us; His only begotten Son.

It's the gift that keeps on giving. So, let's try to remember and be thankful for this wonderful Gift on the other 364 days of the year as well.

A very Merry Christmas, everyone!

1 John 4:9
In this the love of God was manifested toward us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him.

Prayer Request November 2014

This is the month where we are made to sit down and give thanks to God for all the provisions and blessings He has given us throughout the year. The reason why I wrote 'made to sit down' is because there are many people who otherwise wouldn't even consider praising God and giving thanks.

Life can be hectic and put a lot of stress on a person. It can take precedence over prayer, counting blessings, praising, and thanking God daily. Sadly but true, God has been put on the side burner (maybe even entirely aside) of many.

Let's try and reverse that. We all have several minutes to spare during the day. We ought to use those wisely by giving thanks and praising God for all He has and constantly is doing for us!

Psalm 100:4
Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, And into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.

Prayer Request October 2014

After a stressful day we don't think twice about how good it is being able to lay our heads to rest, drift away into a peaceful sleep and leave the worries behind for a little while.

We take for granted evening will come and we can retreat for the night. Yes, evening will come but how often has it occurred to us how blessed we are having made it through another day safe and sound?

When we count our blessings we realize we have a lot to be thankful for!

Proverbs 1:33
but whoever listens to me will live in safety and be at ease, without fear of harm.”

Prayer Request September 2014

There are times when people come up with ideas we do not always agree with. We may consider it best to say nothing, simply because their actions are not our responsibility, but it doesn't hurt to voice your concerns and objections in a kind and caring manner.

We may do things differently. That doesn't mean our way would be better though. It could be helpful to point out our concerns, so others can incorporate them in their decision-making and do what is best for all. As long as we do it with and out of love!

1 Corinthians 13:4
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.

Prayer Request August 2014

You just don't know what God has got in store for you. It may not all be what you had wanted or how you envisioned your life to be. Things and situations may happen which throw you for a loop. To us, it may seem like those occurrences came out of the blue, but God already knew about it before it happened.

Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes it is to test our faith and make us stronger. At other times God has something totally different in mind for us then we do. No matter what evolves in our lives, we can always trust and rely on God to use it in everyone's best interest!

Jeremiah 33:2-3
"Thus says the Lord who made it, the Lord who formed it to establish it (the Lord is His name): 'Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.'

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,
