Prayer Journal: Day 230

Day 230

But without faith it is impossible to please Him: for he that cometh to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him. – Hebrews 11:6 KJV

When we spend time seeking the Lord, He recognizes our time well spent. It pleases God when we spend time reading scripture, sharing His Word, and coming to Him in prayer. 

We only have 24 hours in a day, but when we seek Him first, everything falls into place. Our worries fade into the background. He answers our prayers and gives us peace. He can take care of our loved ones even if we are not there. He always comforts and guides us whatever we do. Amen.

Day 189

Oh, clap your hands, all you peoples. Shout to the God with the voice of triumph! For the Lord Most High is awesome; He is a great king over all the earth. – Psalm 47:1-2 NKJV 

When the Lord gives us something big to rejoice over, it is time to clap our hands and enjoy that He opened a door for us.

The Lord takes care of all our needs, more than we ask. He is good!

Our Lord is awesome because no obstacle is too big for Him. No challenge is too great. No change is too overwhelming for Him. 

He wants the best for us, and He is pleased when we give our lives to Him.

There is so much in our lives that we cannot see or predict, but the Lord makes our path sure.

He allows good things and people to enter into our lives. His timing is perfect. 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 186

Day 186

And seek not ye what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, neither be ye of doubtful mind. For all these things do the nations of the world seek after: and your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things. But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you. – Luke 12:29‭-‬31 KJV

The Lord knows what our basic needs are, but He also knows what we need to be happy, healthy, and safe. He knows what things we need and what we do not need.

He doesn’t force us to accept things that are not a good fit for us. He cares about every detail of our lives, and when we truly let go and trust Him, He blesses us with more than we can ask or think.

We do not have to settle because when we wait on the Lord, He helps us. He shows us where we should go and what we should do. 

When we take time for prayer and meditation, the time is never wasted. Amen. 

Prayer Journal: Day 185

Day 185

Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. – Romans 8:26 KJV

When we pray without ceasing, sometimes we don’t quite know what to pray for. The Lord knows what interventions need to be done to touch the hearts of those we care about who may be struggling. 

The Lord knows ultimately the best way to reach people who desperately need Him. Perhaps they may have lost touch with Him along the way and have forgotten how much He loves them.

It is not our job to dictate to others how they should communicate with God. God is the judge, not us. We can trust that He will take care of everything and everyone. 

What we can do is simply pray for His help, and He will do the rest. Amen.

Day 166

Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart. – Psalm 37:4 NKJV 

When we delight in the Lord, things work out for us. Our desires even change. Our hearts change. We are transformed. 

The Lord cares about every detail of our lives. He can make positive changes in our lives, changes that we never would have thought possible. We can trust His plans, because He always leads us in the right direction. 

Change can be uncomfortable for us because we don’t always know what to expect. Even through we know that God is with us, sometimes we forget to call upon Him. When we call upon Him in need, we can be glad that we did. Amen.

Prayer Journal: Day 159

Day 159

The mind of sinful man is death, but the mind controlled by the Spirit is life and peace; the sinful mind is hostile to God. It does not submit to God’s law, nor can it do so. – Romans 8:6-7 NIV 

When we set our minds on God, we can enjoy a life of peace. 

The monkey mind is not what the Holy Spirit wants us to allow to take control. Excessive worry, over-thinking, and planning are not productive. We can plan our way, but God determines our steps.

It’s sometimes hard for us to admit that some things are out of our control. No amount of worry will bring them into our control, so we need to let go, and let God.

He is the author and finisher of our faith. He makes laws that are completely fair. We can trust Him in every way. Amen.

Prayer Journal: Day 138

Day 138

However, as it is written: “No eye has seen, nor ear heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love Him” –but God has revealed it to us by His Spirit. The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God. – 1 Corinthians 2:9-10 NIV 

Sometimes we cannot even begin to fathom what God has prepared for us. 

All we can do is pray with a willing spirit and trust that our Lord will always lead us where we need to go. We can trust that wherever the Holy Spirit impresses us to go, it is for a good reason. 

God knows what He is doing. 

We may not always understand why things happen to us, but the Holy Spirit is never confused. The Holy Spirit can reveal to us which direction our lives need to go. He guides us with a deep understanding. Amen. 

Prayer Journal: Day 135

Day 135

You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you. – Isaiah 26:3 NIV 

Sometimes our thoughts run wild. We worry about things that we have no control of. This is not a good use of our time or energy; the Lord reminds us to keep our minds steadfastly focused on Him. If we keep our thoughts focused on trusting Him, we can begin to glimpse what perfect peace feels like. 

In this world we will have trouble, but Jesus has overcome the world. He can help us to reclaim our thoughts and restore our spirits. 

He will take care of our loved ones. He will guide and protect us. If we only would set aside our pride, we would see He can lead us. He knows the solution to every problem. Amen.
