Past Prayer 10

This entry is part of the “Past Prayer Series” .

I won’t be sharing the whole prayer, but here is an excerpt.

May 12, 2011

“…it was two opposing sides. A constant battle in my mind. I couldn’t grasp the truth because I didn’t know what was the truth. I wanted a lot to happen, but Gods answer was no. I needed to be obedient and stop accepting lies from the enemy. I repent for not trusting You and for not being faithful to You at that time in my life. I ask for Your forgiveness and I thank You for forgiving me. I pray that, You Father, may give me ears to hear Your voice, obedience to Your will and patience for Your answer. In Jesus’ name. Amen. “

I know that God has forgiven me. He can forgive you also 1 John 1:9 says,

“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness”

It is so easy to be guilt free. Just go to God with your all, humbly, and open.

O God,

You are a forgiving God,

You are a loving God,

You are a mighty God,

You God, You are amazing.

Nothing can separate me from Your love

Greater is He that is in me, than he that is in the world.

God you are merciful, in You I put all my trust.

For You alone shall I live to please.

To You O God I give all my battles

Although my enemies try to destroy me, You continue to stand before me. You continue to stand behind me; You protect me from harm.

You God, You are my light and my salvation, You are my protector, You are my teacher, God You are my Father and I am Your child.

Your love is so great, no one can love any stronger.

You continue to teach me your commands, and Your love. This will be another great year for You are with me. You know the plans You have for me, plans of hope and a future, plans to prosper me and not to harm me.

The battles that come, only prove that You are a great God. You are awesome in all Your ways. You, God, are righteous, Holy, magnificent…The King of kings. I know this year is going to be great because I have You.

The peace of God which surpasses all understanding will guard my heart and my mind in Christ Jesus. Glory to Your name Lord. Thank You for Your peace and mercy.

I shall be determined not to move away or depart from Your truth, O God.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.

I hope you were able to relate to this past prayer 🙂 .

Have a blessed day!

Past Prayer 8

This entry is part of the “Past Prayer Series” .

January 6, 2011

Father God, I want to thank You again for waking me up this morning, giving me new mercies, and protecting my family & me through out the night. I repent for the sins I have committed against You in thought, word, and deed, I repent of my sins of omission and commission and of my sins seen and unseen. I ask for Your forgiveness and I thank You for Your forgiveness. If we confess our sins You are faithful and just to forgive us of our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness (1 John 1:9).

Father, I ask that You help me to allow You to do Your will in my life. I ask that You may lead me in such a way that removes my selfish ways.

According to Your will God, use me that more people may see and hear about  Your love, grace, and mercy.

I know You have not given me a spirit of fear and that You instilled something great in me, because You are in me and You are great. All of Your creation is great. Teach me and help me to be confident in You, the Holy Spirit & myself > according to what You have given me.

Help me to have a loving and kind heart, but still be able to stand firm on your word that I may not tilt or stumble from the words or actions of others.

Thank You for Your word God, thank You for spiritual wisdom, knowledge, and understanding.

I ask that You may teach me, show me, help me to be patient and humble.

God I ask that You will do Your will in my life and protect my family and me.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Hey! I recommend writing down your own prayers if you happen to notice that random thoughts start to pop in your mind when you are praying. Writing them down can sometimes allow you to focus on your prayer to God. Plus, it will help stop the random thoughts from popping into your conversation with God. This is why I’m able to share my prayers, because I wrote them down.

Divine – Karen Kingsbury

First book review of 2011!

About a month ago I was looking for a book that was not focused on romance or anything of the sort. Divine is the book I found. I was actually surprised that Kingsbury wrote this book…I guess it’s because I’m used to reading about romance in her novels.

Anyway, Divine is a nice book to read. I recommend this book but I must say that the first half of this book may have you upset and probably even mad because of the decisions and actions of the characters. The main character, Mary, goes through physical, emotional, and sexual  abuse at an early age. What I like about Divine is that it shows how God can save anyone with any problem, if they are willing to receive it. I also like that throughout the whole book there is always a glimmer of hope and light that shines…because of her grandmother and all the other characters that believe in the true and living God. Although she does not always see the way of truth and hope in her life, Mary eventually recognizes it and accepts it, after all her attempts to find real love failed. As the story continues, you are able to see how God used what she went through to save others who also experience or have experienced what she went through.

Even the most hard to imagine situations in a person’s life, God can save. He can save us, no matter how far we think we’ve gone. All we have to do is call out to Him(God) with a contrite and humble heart and He will save us from a life of trouble, confusion, fear, pain, and much more. God is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all we ask or think (Ephesians 3:20).

Whatever trouble you may be going through, stop taking matters into your own hands and put it in the hands of God, trust Him. To give it all to God, to know what true love is, go to the Receive Jesus As Your Savior Today page above.

This is the work I was talking about in a previous post. This was my first time using oil pastels. I used the Portfolio Series water-soluble Oil Pastel. I think it could have been a bit neater but since it’s my first time using oil pastel, I’m not taking it seriously.

Remember to be a generous and cheerful giver by the leading of the Holy Spirit.
