Prayer Journal: Day 90

Day 90

The Lord will guide you always; He will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail. – Isaiah 58:11 NIV 

We need God’s guidance. He knows what we need. When we are weak, He strengthens us.

It’s humbling when our health fails and when we are too tired to get out of bed. The Lord knows when we need His strength. He also gives us opportunities to rest when we need to. 

When I was recovering from COVID-19 this fall, I forgot to water an apple seedling that I had been nurturing for weeks. During my illness I was too weak to get out of  bed. The seedling died. I felt bad that I had forgotten to water it.

God knows that we need water, and He never forgets about us!

I tried again with a new seedling, and I am more watchful this time. Amen.

Prayer Journal: Day 82

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.
