Give thanks unto the Lord. He is so good to us and we ought to lift Him up in praise. Thank Him for His goodness and mercy.
Every person that is free from any type of addiction or bad habit in their life ought to give God thanks and show their gratitude towards Him. Continue Reading
Oh Lord, I pray that people would be willing to put off anything in their lives that is holding them back from You. More specifically, I am speaking of sins, addictions, and unforgiveness. Convict these people of the things that they need to work on, that they may come boldly to the cross and follow You, Jesus. I know from experience, as You know also, that while walking in darkness, I am unable to do as You say. It is always my own desires getting in the way. What I think is right always gets in the way of living the right way that You have prescribed for me. Therefore, I am so grateful that You have rescued me while taking me out of the life of sin I was in. You also heard my cries and had mercy for my soul. Thank You for showing such kindness and love for my life. Though I was not able to forgive and show the same mercy to others as You did for me, I was amazed that You still had compassion for my life. Instead of judging me because of where I was, You saw the potential in my life. I may not have had the capacity to let go of my barriers then, because of fear, but because of Your great love for me, all those walls have been torn down in Your mighty Name, Jesus. Thank You, Lord. There is no more fear, but boldness in my life now for others and Your kingdom. There are no more hard feelings towards anyone that has hurt me but only love for them. I am able to forgive because You forgave me first. What a great God You are. I was lost and You found me. There was not much going for me, but You picked me up and showed me the way. If I am anything and have accomplished things now, it is because You dwell in my life. I owe all to You, Jesus. My life is yours. I am so happy now, and it is because Your love dwells with me. Thank You for filling me up with Your joy. I love You. Amen.
Colossians 3:12,13 (KJV)
12 Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering;
13 Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye.
If anything is broken, God is able to mend those broken ties, by ushering in His love. We then can't help but forgive all people.

Oh Lord, I pray for restitution in the lives of people that have been lied to and to those people, whom their names have been slandered wrongfully. Truly, there crimes and punishments were in vain and unnecessary, but the person who lied to them didn't care for their well-being. This is so sad, Lord, and I pray that people that were affected by such people will find joy once again in Your presence, their family, their friends, and church member's lives. May there be people in the faith that will come to their side and help them in whatsoever they can. We all know people who are suffering, and I pray Lord, that people will be moved to do something nice for them. Just because there is hardship in their life now, I know there can still be peace and a restoration in their lives, because of Your great love for us all. Sometimes we have to go through trials in life, and in the end, it only helps us deepen our walk with You, Jesus. I know that we don't wish to see family members go out and make bad decisions that then affect our own family, but I know this happens more than we wish for, God, because people have free agency. Even though we hope people would choose to follow You and do what is right, we cannot force their hands. All I can do, Lord, is lead them to You and pray that they will repent before it is too late. Now, Lord, I am also sorry for telling my wife little lies over this last week. I know this is uncalled for, even if I say I am kidding afterwards. So I pray that You will also change my heart, that I might better serve You and do Your will. I love You, Lord. Amen.
Proverbs 12:21-23 (KJV)
21 There shall no evil happen to the just: but the wicked shall be filled with mischief.
22 Lying lips are abomination to the Lord: but they that deal truly are his delight.
23 A prudent man concealeth knowledge: but the heart of fools proclaimeth foolishness.
God is never Ok with lying, for He hates them. All lies are an abomination to God and unless you repent, you are not saved.
It is when we are truthful to people, is when trust is also built. Now the opposite is when people lie and even jokingly lie and then say sorry sarcastically. Continue Reading
Oh Lord, I pray that people will do justly with their money, for Your sake. Too many people are spending it on things they do not need, while those that are in need suffer because of their wrong choices. What is really sad is to see people try to earn as much money as they can, while still not doing anything for the homeless, their churches they attend in tithing or offerings, or simply looking outside themselves, in order to see and give to those that are more in need than themselves. Truly the world would be a better place if we all loved You more than money. Then, would our desires be less for ourselves and more for the building up of Your kingdom, and to giving to those less fortunate. Instead of heartache, depression, and divorce, that is caused by financial issues, all this could be fixed if people were more content in what You gave them and less of what the world offers. Thank You, Lord, for teaching me this and for helping me remember that seeking You first is the most important thing for my life. It is because with Your presence I am strong, but without Your presence, I am left alone, while making the worst decisions I can possible. I don't wish to be unhappy, but money and having more treasures because of it is what does this to me. Oh, the hardships this has put on my family, because of my selfish purchases. I am so sorry Lord. I don't wish to have my family suffer any longer because of what my flesh desires. Instead, I hope and pray that I will be content in what I have and give what I do not need to those in need. May this good desire, that only comes from You, stick with me in my heart for all my life. For all I need is You now, Jesus. I love You more than any earthly treasure. I believe in and trust in what You can do for my life for salvation. Thank You for your guidance. Amen.
1 Timothy 6:7-9 (KJV)
7 For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.
8 And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.
9 But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition.
We don't need more money, but what the Lord has to offer us. Seek Him and you will find true joy and satisfaction.
Truly, money almost took me down the path of becoming divorced and even homeless, because of almost losing our home and all the stress in the marriage. Continue Reading
Oh Lord, I pray that more people will endure in the faith. That once they make the decision to believe in You, Jesus, that they will not back down, but go all in for Your kingdom and Your glory. Then, can You continually be with them, as You are with me, while lifting up their hopes, which come from heaven above. You have the power to break us free from all sin and addiction in our lives, while cleansing us from within. We don’t have to be a slave to sin any longer, but a willful follower of what You have spoken and are continuing to speak to us now. Thank You for Your holy words in the Bible. They are refreshing to my ears and are like pure honey to my taste. I am so blessed to be filled with what You have spoken in scripture. Thank You for allowing Your Words to be in my heart and in my mind. Because of this, I am at peace now, and can rest in Your promises that come from above. All I want is more of You and less of my own desires, which only lead to death and destruction. My soul sings hallelujah to Your great Name, oh God. I am amazed at Your love for me. Thank You, Lord. May there be more people that will experience Your love before they die. Then, will they know as I know that only You have the power to save us from hell, and raise us up into newness of life on this earth and in heaven. I love You, Lord. Only You could save a wretch like me. Into Your arms will I dwell forever. Amen.
Revelation 21:2-5 (KJV)
2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.
4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
5 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.
