Oh Lord, I pray that more people will put their trust in You and start living out their faith, starting today. May they find rest in Your presence and overcome what is holding them back in the world. You are the one that can guard their heart from slipping back in sin, for You are able to hold us up when we are falling. It is Your will that nobody would perish, but have mercy and forgiveness in their lives. Sure, there are people that will never give ear to You because of their stubbornness and hard heart, but even some people like this have hope still. Just like You did for me, You can take them in their broken state and give them the peace that they need. Even though they have broken Your commands, all they need to do, Lord, is call upon Your Name and there will be strength given to them in that moment. You are so merciful and compassionate for our needs and these people will not even know what hit them when Your presence enters their life. They may not have room for You now, but after they experience Your abundant joy and happiness, their lives be much different. Just like I never had time for You, I now have all the time in the world to study the Bible and to pray. You are all I need now to be happy, God, and I know that many people have come to the same realization that I have. What You can bless us with is far greater than what the world offers. No matter the abundance of riches and lustful fulfillment, there is no comparison to the joy that I have found in You. It cannot be replaced by things that are temporary, for Your mercy endures and grace forever. I am a blessed man, because You are now a big part of my everyday life. I love You Lord. Amen.

3 Trust in the Lord, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.
4 Delight thyself also in the Lord: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.
5 Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.
Many people pray for things that they wish they had. However, we ought to be praying for what God desires for our lives and He will respond.
It is when we commune with God often is when His desires become our own and we ask for the right things. This is when blessings pour in.
Some of you may be praying for mercy and forgiveness. This is s a very good thing to do and praise be to God that you are giving your heart to Him now in prayer. Continue Reading
