Prayer Journal: Day 148

Day 148

Through Jesus, therefore let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise–the fruit of our lips that confess His name. And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased. Hebrews 13:15-16 NIV 

What pleases and impresses our peers–fame, fortune, and fun–isn’t what necessarily pleases God. God is pleased when we share the good news about Jesus with others. God is pleased when we praise His name.

He certainly deserves our praise.

Whenever we come out of a health crisis alive, we can remember how critical it is to praise Him. We can credit Him for our lives and be grateful for everything that He has given us.

The world would be a dark place without Jesus. One of the first things God said at the creation of the Earth was, “Let there be light.” He is the light in our lives. Amen.

Day 133

When I am afraid, I will trust in you. – Psalm 56:3 NIV 

I received a message from my sister yesterday that our mother had fallen in her yard and hit her head. My sister texted me from the Emergency Room that they were waiting on CT results. 

The news hit me like a lightning bolt through the heart. I could feel fear creeping in, but I immediately began to pray, asking Jesus to help. I sent an email to my church family and asked them to pray as well. 

God answers our prayers, and He does so quickly sometimes! I received a call from my sister and talked to my mom. My mom has a bump on her head, but the CT came back normal and there was no internal bleeding. She was at my sister’s house, and the doctor had recommended that she be woken up every two hours. She would not be able to drive or stay home by herself for a while, but God answered our prayers, and she is okay. God is good! Amen.
