An early Monday Morning Prayer (Repost from 2010)

James 5:16-18 The Message 16-18 Make this your common practice: Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you can live together whole and healed. The prayer of a person living right with God is something powerful to be reckoned with. Elijah, for instance, human just like us, prayed hard that it wouldn’t rain, and it didn’t—not a drop for three and a half years. Then he prayed that it would rain, and it did. The showers came and everything started growing again. LET US PRAY!

Faith Speaks and it is so… Prayer of Purpose, Promise, and Praise!

Faith Speaks and it is so...prayer, purpose, and praise. Father you have shared with us grace, mercy, and instructions. Thank you for your perfect promises seen in the scriptures. Thank you furthermore that whatever is written is so and we can bank on whatever you say goes! Continue to help us live a life worthy of you. Lord thank you for forgiving us. Thank you for allowing us the chance to know you. But more importantly, thank you for knowing us, loving us, and keeping us - in spite of us! Amen Indeed.

J.O.Y. = Just Open Yourself…

Father, I come to you asking that everyone who is currently hurting, currently depressed, currently grieving, currently in need of a breakthrough; that you come into their environment and change up their circumstances. Let your JOY be the strength they need right now to pull them through. God you can do it because you have done it for me and countless others who have cried out before you to get the help they need. Be there for them Lord and help them. Ease their burdens. Heal their broken hearts, lift their spirits, and help them find JOY, Peace, love, and YOU again while in the midst of their personal sorrow. Thank you Lord for hearing my prayer! Thank you Jesus for carrying all these burdens to the cross and removing them away from what we have to carry. That weight is too much for us to bear. And thank you Holy Spirit for directing each person into a place of peace, wisdom, and thanksgiving again. Amen Indeed - BE WHOLE!
