March Prayer Journal | Trust

For the month of March let’s focus our prayer time on these specific topics. Today’s topic is “Connected “.


Dear Lord,

You’re Word tells us not be unequally yoked. We know that light has no business with darkness and that bad company ruins good morals so we pray that you would disconnect us from those that have no business in our lives. Disconnect us from the wolves in sheep skin. Disconnect us from the World and connect us back to you.

Deliver us dear Lord from evil. Whether it be in the form of an addiction that only seem like a “bad habit”. Take that taste from our mouth.

Help us to stay connected to you dear Lord. You are the source of our life! Without you we are nothing.

I pray that my friend reading this now would connect with you in a such a way tonight that it would change their life!

I pray that you would give them  such a power surge that they would be filled up and ready to go hard the next day.

Lord we love you! You are so good to us! You are everything we need!

We love you Lord and we ask that all these things be done according to your will.

In Jesus name.

Amen

March Prayer Journal |Fruitful

For the month of March let’s focus our prayer time on these specific topics. Today’s topic is “Fruitful”.


Dear Lord,

Your word says that you can tell a tree by it’s fruits. In the same way that we can look at apple and determine that it belongs to an apple tree, I pray others may be able to look at my characteristics and determine that I am a child of God.

Forgive me for not exercising the fruits of the Spirit all the time, and for not even trying to most of the time. I pray that you would help me to repent and to do better.

I pray that you would help me to exercise self-control. I struggle with being impulsive and that behavior gets me into a lot of trouble. I pray that I would be kind and gentle and not harsh and brash . I pray that would be a peacemaker and not a gossiper. Help me Lord to be Holy, set apart, for your glory.

I pray that you would help the person reading this as well. Help them in the areas of the fruit of the Spirit that they may struggle with as well. I pray that you would give them the opportunity to do better. I believe that practice helps and the more that we practice the fruits, the more they will become apart of us.

I thank you for what you are about to do in our lives.

I ask that all of these things be done according to your will.

In Jesus name, amen.

 

March Prayer Journal | Trust

For the month of March let’s focus our prayer time on these specific topics. Today’s topic is “Forgiveness “.


Dear Lord,

Forgive me for my sins. For the ones that I know that I am doing and consistently do, help me to repent and to not do them anymore. Forgive me for the sins that I commit and do not realize is a sin. Open my eyes and correct my steps, in Jesus name.

Lord, help me to forgive others. Your word tells me that if I do not forgive those who have sinned against me, that you would not forgive me.

Help me to forgive myself. Time after time after time I screw up and I miss the mark that I have set for myself. I know that your standards are the only standards that matter.

I pray for the person reading this today. Give them the strength to practice forgiveness as well. Heal their broken hearts. Wash them white as snow. Forgive them for their sins. Help them to repent and never do them again.

I pray that we would be great examples to our children and that we would live lifes before them in a way that is pleasing to you.

I ask that all these things be done according to your will.

In Jesus name.

Amen

March Prayer Journal | Trust

For the month of March let’s focus our prayer time on these specific topics. Today’s topic is “Trust”.


Dear Lord,

I trust you! I trust you to be the captain of my life and the anchor of my soul.

I pray that I am able to guard my heart and not be so trusting to man when your word tells us not to trust them ( Psalms 118:8), but to trust you. You are my refuge, you are my hiding place, you are my father, you are sovereign and you know what’s best for me.

I pray that when the times comes and I am in a relationship that trust would be there because he has you in his heart.

I pray that I would be able to trust you. I pray that I would allow you to take total control over my life and over Gia’s life as well.

I pray that the way Gia trusts me, she would trust you even more. I pray that she would cling to you the way that she clings to me.

I pray for my single mom friend reading this. I pray that she would trust you with her life and her child’s life as well. I pray that she would allow you take total control over her situation.

I pray that you would open our eyes to anyone that we trust that we ought not. I pray that you would reveal their hearts to us and that our eyes would be open.

I pray that your Holy Spirit would be with me and my friend reading this, on today. Be with us and speak to us concerning our prayers.

We love you Lord and we ask that all these things be done according to your will.

In Jesus name.

Amen

He is Greater

God is greater than I. 

So then why do I keep trying to figure things out all on my own?

Why do I keep trying to solve problems by myself?

Why don’t I consult God when it comes to my child’s life?

Why don’t I turn to Him when I am in need?

Why don’t I talk to him all the time?

Why don’t I call him for advice?

Can you relate? 

Surely God is greater than I am. Surely God is greater than all of my problems and every situation. Surely He knows what is best for me and my family.

I was reminded of this when I read John 3: 22-36,  as John the Baptist was talking to his disciples and other Jews.

… He must increase, but I must decrease.” He who comes from above is above all. He who is of the earth belongs to the earth and speaks in an earthly way. He who comes from heaven is above all. (John 3:30-31 ESV)

There needs to be less of me and more of him. That seems like a simple formula right? Yet, it’s one of those “easier said than done” kind of situations. So I thought about this scripture long and hard and below is a snippet of my notes.

Q: How can I decrease? 

A: Pray and vent to God about anything and everything. Whatever I pray about don’t worry about. Look to his Word (the Bible) for answers and for the truth. Allow his will to be done in my life. Write whatever plans that I have in pencil and allow him to erase them as needed and rewrite in his plan in pen.

Q: What does it mean that God is above all?

A: It means that He is above everything. He is above anyone that is in my life. He is above all of my problems. He sees me wherever I am. He is with me wherever I go. He knows. Therefore, I should rely on him and not worry or fret about anything.

Therefore, I should rely on him and not worry or fret about anything. I should trust him and know that my circumstances don’t stand a chance next to God.

It all boils down to trusting God. 

I know you may be thinking that is BASIC stuff, and it is, and I, and maybe you needed to be reminded of it. Maybe I and you needed to be reminded of who God is. And that’s OK to get a reminder every now and again.

Trust and Do Good

Trusting in God

How hard can it be to trust someone after you have been hurt? REALLY HARD!

I am at this point in my life where I want a relationship, and I don’t want to be hurt. I was very trusting, I am very forgiving, and no doubt those qualities along with other mistakes lead me to where I am today, a single mother. I didn’t make the best choices and moving on was difficult, BUT God!

I had the opportunity to change my life around, I was given a second chance, all I had to do was trust God and do good.

That’s been my mission for this year and it all started last year after I listened to a short clip from Joyce Meyers.

“Trust God and do good” stuck with me.

For me that meant, go back to school and get my Masters, trusting God that I would get accepted and be involved in a program that would help me and my family in the long run. I had to trust God that all of my needs, as well as my child’s needs would be met. It hasn’t been easy and God is still calling me daily to trust him.

Doing good, almost comes naturally. I have a heart for service. I know what it’s like to be on the receiving end of blessings and what it’s like to desire help and have none. They say that those that are the first to help generally are those that know what it’s like to need it. God’s calling me deeper and I’m excited to see where he leads me.

I want to encourage you to also trust God and do good. So what you’ve made some mistakes, don’t allow those mistakes to over take you. Trust God to turn what the devil meant for your bad, to turn it around for your good. Do good. It will not only take your focus off of yourself for a while but it will also change your life.

It was one good decision that caused an avalanche of blessings. Just like one bad decision can ruin your whole life, well imagine the power of one good decision. Imagine the power of one good decision after another good decision, after another. Your life won’t be the same.

Don’t wait, start trusting God and doing good today. You’ll be surprised of where God takes you… trust me.
