Today on your birthday, and always when I think of you, I pray with thanks to God for having you in my life. My prayers for you are of joy as it is clear that God has began a good work in you and will complete that work as our years together continue.

As from the day you were born, as when we met, even now, God’s blessings are poured out on you and I am blessed with your love which everyday grows richer in knowledge and insight of things that really matter in our lives.God's creation Today, God sees you the same as He did when he created you, a beautiful and flawless gift. As do I and I am thankful and trust in His word:

Philippians 3 I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.

….It is right for me to feel this way about all of you, since I have you in my heart…

…And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ – to the glory and praise of God.

This is a prayer for you today, Happy Birthday, in Jesus’ Name, Amen

kneeling womanLord, my life to this point has been up and down. I may have not always had my trust in You and even doubted You at times. I now know that You came to earth by the power of God. That You lived as a man. That You suffered by the hand of man and You were hung on a cross to die. Your suffering and Your death on the cross was the death of and forgiveness for my sins.
All of them, before, now and forever.
Thank you Jesus for forgiving me before I ever sinned!
Jesus, You overcame death and live again, even today You Live. Your resurrection and Life is my salvation. I believe Your promise that as You overcame this world, so too, I can overcome anything I face, when keeping faith in You as my Savior.


Lord Jesus Christ, I accept you as my Savior. I believe in Your forgiveness and Your Life forever. With this prayer I now know I am in Your Spirit and You are in me.

Amen, forever now we are one, in Your Holy Spirit!

God, I know you already know my many needs and troubles and will take care of them as I accept You and I will trust in Your Word always.

In Your Name Lord Jesus Christ I pray, Amen

We won’t be shaken!

There is no one besides you; there is no Rock like our God…… …….“He will protect his faithful ones, but the wicked will disappear in darkness.”

Know this, without doubt….

Father, we know You are our Rock, our Justice, our Vindicator, our Redeemer and we are thankful.

Veteran’s Day Prayer

1 Peter 4:10-11 – As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace: whoever speaks, as one who speaks oracles of God; whoever serves, as one who serves by the strength that God supplies.

Father, on this day we pray in Your Glory to honor our veterans. We thank You for the brave and courageous men and women who gave their best, some the ultimate sacrifice, when they were called upon to serve and protect our country. We know You will bless them for their unselfish commitment and service to preserve our freedom. We know you will reward them for the hardships they faced, the sacrifices they and their families made, and the challenges many of them endure today. We pray in thanks as we respect and honor them. We are proud of each and every one of them and we pray You will cover our heroes, our Veterans, with Your healing power and the Peace, Joy and Happiness only Your Holy Spirit can provide.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

“Thank you for serving, we salute you this Veterans Day!”

Are you at a point in your life where you see yourself with little value, not the achiever you thought you would be, feel like others are chosen before you or feel like you are less than the person others expect you to be?  Do you feel alone or like no one knows who you are or even knows your name?

When you try to succeed in this world on your own, by your own efforts, by your own talents, the enemy in this world will bring these feelings and emotions upon you, to overwhelm you! You may begin to think “I cannot do this, I am not the one for this.”

You can overcome these feelings and emotions.

eye on you

Remember, God has His eye upon you and sees your heart. You are a Christian, you have faith, you are chosen and He knows your name!

 

 

1 Samuel 16:7  “….The Lord doesn’t see things the way you see them. People judge by outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”

Isaiah 43:1 “….Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you. I have called you by name; you are mine.”

Just as His Word was given to Moses, His Word is given to you!

Exodus 33:17 “….I will indeed do what you have asked, for I look favorably on you, and I know you by name.”

Stop whatever you are doing right now and pray as you listen to “He knows my name” by Francesca Battistelli:

1 Thessalonians 1:4 “….God loves you and has chosen you to be His own people.”

Father, we know you see into our hearts.  You know us for who we are and even more, whom You know we will and can be.  You know our names. You love us as we are, the ones who You created, the ones You have chosen.  We live for You, not for others, not for their praise, only for You.  With all honor and glory to You, we are illuminated in “Your Light”.  You are proud of us, You applaud us, You place us on the stage You desire, amen Your stage.  On earth as it is in Heaven.  

We pray together and praise You. We know You and thank You because You truly know us by our names.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen

Don’t stop believing!

Does your life seem complex or difficult? Do you feel alone? Are you struggling with your family relationships? Are you questioning your faith? Are you wondering what you can do to make things better?
He goes before you in a storm
Often you only need to pause and think about your life, what you are focused on and then look deep into your heart to see if you are focused on what you want, or what He wants.

His rewards are poured out upon you when you follow His path. Your dreams are still ahead of you. You are getting closer to your victory! You only need to believe, God will do the rest for you.

Yes, it’s that simple!

John 14:12-14 “Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because I am going to the Father. Whatever you ask in my name, this I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask me anything in my name, I will do it.”

Amen, We believe!

1 Timothy 4:10 “We struggle and work hard, because we have placed our hope in the living God, who is the Savior of all and especially of those who believe.”

Stand firm in faith. Believe in our Lord and Christ Jesus and believe in yourself. You are strong, amen – you have His strength and power in you! Your hard work, your love for others and your faith will bring you through the most difficult times in your life! Believe it!

John 20:29 Jesus said to him, “Have you believed because you have seen me? Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”

John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.”

You are smart and can make good decisions. Just begin to follow the ideas He places in your heart.

Mark 16:15-16 And he said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.”

It is your day, your time, your life….. BELIEVE IT AND LIVE IT!

Father, we know You will bless all of Your children with Your strength, amen Your Holy Spirit, as we walk in Faith and shine with Your characteristics that are illuminated through each of us as we believe and live humbly, thankful, just, temperate, hospitable, and self-controlled.

With all of our passion, energy and love from our pure hearts, good consciences and sincere Faith, we believe in Your true and trustworthy Word and we share it with all, as You desire us to, in Your Honor and Glory.

In Faith we pray together and receive Grace, Mercy and Peace from God the Father , Christ Jesus our Lord and Savior and His Holy Spirit. Amen
