Prayer Journal: Day 302

Day 302

All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. – John 1:3 NKJV

Jesus is creative. He is the source of all creation. When we create things, it is because we are made in His image; therefore, we can imagine, plan, and put our plans into action.

Nothing happens without the Lord knowing about it. He is aware of all the details of our lives.

When we are sick, He heals us. When we are hungry, He feeds us. When we are sad, He comforts us.

The Lord intends for us to prosper. He has work that He wants us to do, and when we take time to read the Bible, we tune in to His purpose for us. When we are busy getting our “to do” lists done, sometimes we are too busy to hear His voice. When we take the time for prayer and meditation, we hear Him and follow. Amen.

Day 299

Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. – James 5:16 KJV

Nobody is perfect. We all have faults. When we talk about our struggles with other people we trust, it helps, because we are all going through something to some degree or another. 

When we pray for other people, it doesn’t mean that we are better or more righteous. The Lord can intercede and communicate what needs to be said. 

The Lord is an incredible healer. He can help anyone, but we have to be willing to ask. Amen. 

Prayer Journal: Day 260

Day 260

Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others. – Philippians 2:3‭-‬4 NIV

I have always cared about other people and tried to help them as much as possible. Sometimes this isn’t the best trait because I don’t always have good self care. The Lord can show us the perfect balance between self care and caring for others. He knows exactly the right thing to tell us at the perfect time. 

His humility is an example to us. He did not heal the sick to become known as a healer. He did it because He loves us and is compassionate.

At any moment Jesus could have snapped His fingers and become the richest ruler on earth, but He didn’t. He came to save us and nothing distracted Him from His Father’s purpose. We are privileged to be called sons and daughters of God. We can rejoice every time that He connects us with someone we can help. Nothing is an accident. God arranges our connections. Amen. 

Prayer Journal: Day 201

Day 201

In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace that He lavished on us. With all wisdom and understanding, He made known to us the mystery of His will according to His good pleasure, which He purposed in Christ, to be put into effect when the times reach their fulfillment—to bring unity to all things in heaven and on earth under Christ. – Ephesians 1:7‭-‬10 NIV

Communication that Christ blesses brings unity. Where relationships were broken for reasons beyond our control because of the actions of others, the love of Christ brings us together. 

Jesus forgives our sins. Through His stripes we are healed. 

He wants to lavish grace on us, but we have to choose to receive it. Instead of listening to the grumbling thoughts that the devil puts in our heads, we can remember the Lord’s wisdom, understanding, and will.

Jesus fulfilled the purpose that God meant for Him to accomplish on Earth. We can pray daily to the Lord so that we may also fulfill the purpose He intends for us as well. A life of purpose brings happiness. Amen.

Prayer Journal: Day 188

Day 188

A person’s wisdom yields patience; it is to one’s glory to overlook an offense. – Proverbs 19:11 NIV

The Lord teaches us how to forgive an offense. Since none of us are without sin, we are not justified to judge others.

The Lord knows our pain and has borne our sorrows. 

If we have never lost a loved one, it is difficult to understand grief, but Jesus understood grief. He was a man acquainted with sorrow. He wants to comfort us and take away our pain and infirmities. Jesus is the Great Physician. 

In Heaven there will be no need for hospitals or emergency rooms. God will be the only thing that we need. 

When we trust Him with all aspects of our body, mind, and soul, we will never be disappointed. 

He takes care of our friends and family members, and He is only a prayer away when we need Him. Amen. 

Prayer Journal: Day 182

Day 182

Judge not, and you shall not be judged. Condemn not, and you shall not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven. – Luke 6:37 NKJV 

Sometimes we can be a harsh judge of other people who we believe have wronged us in the past. We replay what they did in our minds and condemn them for what they did wrong. 

Forgiveness does not make what they did right, but forgiveness is a prescription for healing. Jesus teaches us to forgive, and whenever we remember those old wrongs and start to feel angry and resentful all over again, we can remind ourselves that forgiveness heals us and allows us to become more like Jesus. 

God sometimes allows difficult situations to enter into our lives to teach us. Whenever we feel angry, we can remind ourselves to forgive 70×7. Amen. 

Prayer Journal: Day 104

Day 104

Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever! Amen. – Ephesians 3:20-21 NIV

When we pray believing, we can have the assurance that God will take care of those we pray for. 

A friend of mine has COVID-19. His age and health condition puts him at greater risk. I can tell he is not feeling well. He is a child of God, and I know God is taking care of him.

I don’t always understand God’s divine timing. Why do good people get sick?

When fear creeps into our hearts, we must remember who God is. He has a reason for everything. It’s sometimes hard for us to see why good people have to suffer, but God is in control and has power to cure any illness. Jesus spent many days healing people. Some day when we join Him in Heaven, we will understand God’s master plan. Amen 

Prayer Journal: Day 84

Day 84

God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. – Psalm 46:1 NIV

God doesn’t prevent trouble from ever coming into our lives, but He gives us the tools to deal with it. He knows what we struggle with, and He gives us strength. 

There are difficult people and challenging situations that we face, but we can face them with Jesus at our side. He is always with us.

When our loved ones or friends are sick, He comforts them. When friends are in the hospital, He can heal them. He can perform miracles. 

Even when loved ones pass away, He gives us comfort and peace when we are grieving. He knows our pain. He has felt it, too. The Lord always prevails. He is the light in our lives, and we can be thankful for His presence. Amen.
