Prayer Journal: Day 311

Day 311

Therefore, holy brothers and sisters, who share in the heavenly calling, fix your thoughts on Jesus, whom we acknowledge as our apostle and high priest. – Hebrews 3:1 NIV

Our thoughts can drift everywhere if we let them.

When we focus our thoughts onJesus, our lives make more sense.

We can trust Him.

When we spend time with other believers of Jesus, we can listen to each other and offer support and prayers. We all need prayers. 

The Lord has asked us to share our faith with others. He helps us to transform our thoughts so that we are not afraid to share how much we love Him. Amen.

Day 308

Trust in Him at all times, you people; Pour out your heart before Him; God is a refuge for us. Selah – Psalm 62:8 NKJV

Trusting in God means letting go of worry. It is so easy to worry about our health, our finances, and our future, but God is in control, and we can trust Him with every detail of our lives in perfect peace.

When we pour out our hearts before the Lord, we share with Him our inner thoughts, challenges, and heartaches. Sometimes the stress is imagined, and other times it is real. God listens to everything and helps us put our agendas in perspective.

God created us to live a life of purpose. Our existence is not meaningless. Our creation was not a fluke. There is a design and a beauty to everything God creates, and we are created in His image. 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.

Day 217

The Lord hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee. – Jeremiah 31:3 KJV

The Lord’s love for us lasts forever. He will never get tired of loving us. He will never be too busy to hear our prayers. 

Our God is kind. He made us good. When we find ourselves wondering how we will handle all the changes in our lives, we can simply stop and remember that we can always trust Him.

Transitions can feel uncertain. When we move to a different state, the roads are unfamiliar, but God always knows where He is going. He is never unsure where He is leading us. His GPS never has to recalculate, because He is always on track. Jesus is the Good Shepherd and makes sure we won’t get lost. He is the way, the truth, and the life. Amen.

Day 163

But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. – 2 Corinthians 4:7 NIV 

God molds us like clay. We are slowly becoming more like Him as we learn to rely on Him and surrender to the treasure of salvation. He doesn’t ask us to take on more than we can bear. 

God’s power surpasses any force that we can imagine. His love for us is immeasurable. 

When we try to rely on our own power, we often fall. The Lord can pick us up. We can trust that He will always be there to protect us and our loved ones. 

As time passes, things and people change. Change is good. When we allow our minds to be transformed by the Lord, we develop a new perspective. Amen.

Day 157

What, then, shall we say in response to this? If God is for us, who can be against us? – Romans 8:31 NIV 

Jesus loves us more than life itself. He is on our side. He is for us.

When life seems uncertain, one thing is for sure: Jesus loves us and saved us. We can be grateful for His sacrifice. He is here to help us.

When we are tired, He is there. When we are sad, He is there. We are never alone. When we are afraid, He gives us courage. 

The Lord wants good things for those who love and trust Him. We don’t have to rely on couches, mentors, and marketers for wisdom, because wisdom comes ultimately from God. We can tune into His voice. Amen. 

Prayer Journal: Day 154

Day 154

The Lord is my strength and shield; my heart trusts Him, and I am helped. My heart leaps for joy, and I will give thanks to Him in song. – Psalm 28:7 NIV

When the Lord gives us strength, we can overcome the hardships that life throws at us. His strength acts like a shield to protect us from harm.

When bad things happen, such as illness, we can better appreciate our health when the Lord restores us.

When we trust Him with all our heart, mind, and spirit, we can find joy in the works that He has helped us to accomplish. All good things come from the Lord.

When He restores us to good health, doesn’t that make us feel like singing? Our Lord is worthy of praise. Amen.

Prayer Journal: Day 151

Day 151

Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age. – Matthew 28:19-20 NIV 

Jesus doesn’t ask us to sit at home and do nothing. He wants us to go and spread the good news to the nations about salvation, in whatever way we can.

Baptism is a commitment to our Eternal Father, to abide by His commandments and to trust that when the Holy Spirit speaks to us–in that still, quiet voice–we must listen. 

His words are powerful. We never know how we can make a difference in the lives of other people. 

Jesus being in us means that we are changing for the better. Jesus is the promise of a happy ending. Amen. 

Prayer Journal: Day 150

Day 150

Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me. – John 14:1 NIV 

We can trust in Jesus. He is preparing a place for us in Heaven. The things of Earth can be troubling. There is sickness and death. We don’t always feel safe leaving our houses during the pandemic. 

The Lord knows what we are going through, and He will give us strength to overcome our challenges. He can keep us safe.

When the world seems cold and dark, He is with us. He comforts and protects us. When we devote our lives to Him, our thoughts change. He can transform our thoughts. 

When things seem hard, we can whisper a prayer, and Jesus will help us. Our Lord makes no mistakes. His will for us is perfect. We can trust that He will lead us to the way everlasting. Amen.

Prayer Journal: Day 146

Day 146

And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart. – Jeremiah 29:13 KJV

We search for answers. We often want to know what is going to happen to us next, yet we have little control of the future sometimes. God is in control. We can trust Him with all our plans.

When we seek the Lord in prayer, He reassures us. He strengthens us. He tells us not to be afraid. He is with us at all times. We are never alone because He is always watching over us. We are not isolated, because He is with us.

Our Lord knows that we are prone to worry, yet He gives us opportunities to see His face and praise His name. He knows our hearts. 

Each day He provides us with tiny miracles. God gives us many gifts and abilities. We can focus on being thankful for what we have instead of worrying about what we do not have. He always provides for us. Our Heavenly Father gives good gifts to His children, and He never forgets about us! Amen.
