Father, help me to keep my eyes focused on you no matter the situation and how I am feeling today. Help me to remember that you are the one who made my body and you know every thing that is not in working order. I believe you are a healer, even of those thing I have no knowledge of. I believe Lord, that you are also a comforter, and that you sent the Holy Spirit to comfort me in my time of need, and for that Lord, I thank you in advance for healing me in both my body and my heart and for the comfort to ease my uneasiness.
Lord you also made my mind and my every thought as well as my dreams and desires here on earth. Today I need encouragement for those dreams and desires and strength and an understanding to know that every setback does not mean it is not so, and I will keep my eye on the prize, because I run to win, and when I win Lord you get all the glory, because it is not in my own strength and my being that is has come to pass, but it is only with your help that I am here and for that Lord, I thank you for being the potter and I being the clay, thank you for molding me and shaping me into what you would have me to be. Thank you for keeping me in my right mind!
Lord today, I struggle, I am hurting and in pain, my thoughts are clouded with what I see, what I hear and what is presented before me. Today my eyes are filled with tears because I am human and my emotions are running wild. I ask you to calm my spirit and to get my feeling under control.

I’m looking forward to seeing what God will do in my life as my classmates and I serve Him in COSTA RICA. I would ask you to please pray that during this time:
God does not make mistakes, and this devotion, unfortunately, reminds me of my bad attitude displayed at Sunday’s Women’s Day service. I was just in a bad mood and the sisters noticed it. I had to repent and ask God to forgive me and deliver me from this dark place I found myself occupying.
and foremost, the Almighty Father be thanked for this sight. I suffered a long harrowing
[Sits down, eyes closed and hands gathered] Lord, please forgive my debts as I come to realisation of my wrong doings and sins. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. In your name,
Request for Prayers Paul, we ask that you pray for us, that we overcome our obstacles in the way that God wants us to to do. Please pray for our children, that they walk in the right path to heaven. Pray for peace and positivity.
On an unusually warm February day last year, my brother and I sat on the back porch enjoying our lunch. We laughed while prodding one another with jubilant harassments. As we conversed and consumed our meal, our parents returned from my dad’s doctor’s appointment. Because my dad was experiencing swelling in his neck we all suspected that he had an infecting in his glands, or some other minut illness. When my parents joined us, I jokingly asked, “So are you dying Dad?” The moment I uttered those words, I knew I said the wrong thing. Pain gripped my father’s face. He sighed. My parents told us that he has cancer in his throat,his glands and on the back of his tongue. I immediately left, overwhelmed by grief, worry,and anguish. Then the Lord imparted some knowledge upon me. Cancer is a terribly destructive disease, but since Jesus is a loving God, He brings people into our lives to help alleviate to pain.
As I began to write, I started to feel the presence of God and realize that God’s grace is sufficient. For it states in 2 Corinthians 12:9, “But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.” Upon returning to my counseling session, the counselor praised me for my productive assignment and reminded me through scripture and prayer that God is in control of our lives. He reminded me that I had to focus on the good things about my dad and cherish
In terms of my leadership, I think I grew much more confident and strict as a leader. When I started, I remember thinking that all my residents would be wonderful and would listen to their RA, because I always did so everyone else would too. That was clearly not the case, especially when it came to quiet hours. Confrontations are frightening to me because I have had bad experiences in the past. But as an RA, it is part of what I need to do. Once residents started complaining about one another, I realized warnings were not sufficient. So I started documenting residents who were loud during quiet hours. I also grew as a confident leader through my trivia week. I remember feeling really nervous to knock on everyone 's door to do trivia. I am
Having known God all my life, I'm aware of how to pray, but I never believed I was worthy enough for Him to endear me, until that night. About two minutes into my entreaty, I began choking back sobs from the raw emotion that was mutilating me down to my very soul, emotion for Daniel, his family, friends and any other person he influenced in his succinct life. After a numerous amount of minutes spent trying to control the flow of sentiment streaming through me, I was able to get my weeping under control, only to have a new rush of passion pour out when Justin began praying over my group of friends. “Lord, Thank You for these beautiful girls. Thank you for allowing the Caddo connection”, he said using the nickname he created for our posse, “this ray of sunshine in Ridge crest. We are so glad that they began attending our church. Please help us make them feel welcome.” Unable to handle the warmth in Justin's words while trying to regain control of my lamenting, I tuned out from the rest of his
My Father, we trust in your overwhelming absolute loving energy that dwells within Chris. May it flow to all places of his body to support healing.
And I thank you for helping my family through all of these trials and maybe being able to get out of this okay. I pray that maybe someday I will be able to comprehend why you have set these challenges in front of us and what lesson there is to be learned, and why my dad has had to suffer with this depression for so long. Also the thought that in heaven dad wont have depression so then maybe ill be able to experience what it may have been like to have a somewhat normal dad growing up. And God thank you for everything, thank you for the people in my life, the bird in the trees and the fish in the sea. Sometimes it just takes the smallest ladybug to make a person smile. So thank you for giving me hope during the trials of life, because life stinks sometimes. Not that you made a bad world just we humans messed it up. I wish life could be like the hundread acere woods where the worst thing to happen is getting lost. God maybe one day ill be able to understand how life works, maybe ill be able to understand why my dad has depression. I pray that if it is in your will that father will be able to get a permanent life-time job, and that my parents will learn to love each other
The unthankful heart... discovers no mercies; but let the thankful heart sweep through the day and, as the magnet finds the iron, so it will find, in every hour, some heavenly blessings!
Almost everyone, in a moment of terror or anguish, will turn to God for help. But a true believer will pray for guidance, not only for help. He calls on God not for material things, but for the knowledge to understand the way to acquire what is needed. Pray for ability equal to the opportunity, for good habits, for love, to use words well, to humbly forge through all obstacles, to reach worthwhile
1 Lord, you are the God who saves me; day and night I cry out to you. 2 May my prayer come before you; turn your ear to my cry. 3 I am overwhelmed with troubles and my life draws near to death. 4 I am counted among those who go down to the pit; I am like one without strength. 5 I am set apart with the dead, like the slain who lie in the grave, whom you remember no more, who are cut off from your care. 6 You have put me in the lowest pit, in the darkest depths. 7 Your wrath lies heavily on me; you have overwhelmed me with all your waves. 8 You have taken from me my closest friends and have made me repulsive to them. I am confined and cannot escape; 9 my eyes are dim with grief. I call to you, Lord, every day; I spread out my hands to you. 10 Do you show your wonders to the dead? Do their spirits rise up and praise you? 11 Is your love declared in the grave, your faithfulness in Destruction? 12 Are your wonders known in the place of darkness, or your righteous deeds in the land of oblivion? 13 But I cry to you for help, Lord; in the morning my prayer comes before you. 14 Why, Lord, do you reject me and hide your
