Prayer Journal: Day 87

Day 87

You are my God, and I will give you thanks; you are my God, and I will exalt you. – Psalm 118:28 NIV 

All good things come from the Lord. We can be thankful for the blessings He has given us. He gives us health. He gives us life. He gives us family and friendship. 

The Lord protects us, guides us, comforts us, and is always there for us. 

We can be thankful for the food on the table, the company we share, and the warmth in our homes. 

Even in the midst of troubling times, the Lord gives us strength and endurance. We are never alone because He is with us.

When we find ourselves worried about uncertainties, He comforts us. He is our helper. The precious moments in life, the moments of stillness, meditation, and love, are good times to be remembered. He is there to enjoy them with us. Amen.

Day 82

I pray that out of His glorious riches He may strengthen you with power through His Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. – Ephesians 3:16-17

We need God’s strength during this time. The fact that He can strengthen our inner being is comforting. He cares about every detail of our lives, and our comings and goings.

It is good to be thankful and to express gratitude, especially if we find ourselves worried about day-to-day things. Gratitude and thankfulness can fill our hearts and refocus our thoughts. We can be thankful for the friends and family we have, the roof over our heads, and the food on the table. We are rich in God’s blessings, no matter what. Amen.

Day 72

Therefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all the saints, do not cease to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers: that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, the eyes of your understanding being enlightened. – Ephesians 1:15-18

God asks us to pray for one another.

My mom’s good friend tested positive for COVID-19 on 11/10/20. Hopefully his case is mild. 

God blesses us in times of sickness and in health. When we are healthy, we can praise Him. When we are ill, we learn from Him patience and gratitude. He always takes care of us. As we grow in the knowledge of Him we can find peace. Amen. 

Prayer Journal: Day 61

If you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any fellowship with the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and purpose. – Philippians 2:1-2 (NIV)

It’s helpful to end a stressful week by spending time with friends and family enjoying each other’s company. I’m grateful to have a good husband who helps take care of me and my son. I have good friends whom I trust. It’s easy to be around them because I can be honest with them and be myself.

The Holy Spirit is my friend and comforter as well. I can always count on Him being there when I am in a tight spot. Despite many health challenges, I find comfort in the little things. It’s the little things that count.
