Right now lord, I really need you. I need to show yourself. I am scared. I am alone. I cannot eat, cannot sleep, cannot comprehend. Show yourself lord. Reveal yourself. Have mercy. I believe. I have faith. I need you.
Heavenly Father, I thank you for this day. I’m sorry I haven’t been talking to you lately. I wish I could say it’s because i have been busy but to be honest, it’s just cause I was lazy and forgetful.
I recently bought this necklace as I reminder of your love.
Forgive me father. I thank you for keeping my family and loved ones safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. I pray for those that have contracted it. I pray for those that are without a job right now. I pray for those tonight who are worried about health and finances. I thank you lord for another successful school year for the girls. You are wonderful and glorious lord. I thank you for being patient with me. Forgive me of my sins and where I lead those close to me wrong. Bless my career and all of us on this earth. I love you lord. In Jesus name, AMEN.
Prayer is the most powerful way to connect with God. It was a direct line to the Alpha and Omega and has been used to to win wars, begin peace, heal sickness, oversee finances, etc. With praying being so powerful, it is natural for one to think that it has to be elaborate and a spectacle.
This could not be further from the truth. Praying is simply talking. This can be hard for many to do but once you begin to view God not just as God but as a father, this becomes easier. How do you talk to the adult figures in your life? When you are hungry do you have a whole speech just to ask for food? NO, you simply say I am hungry. The same with God. If you want something, if you are scared, worried, or just want to say hi, just talk…no need for pageantry. Here is how I start my prayers…
Heavenly Father, I thank you for this day. Today, is going to be rough….
I thank you for this day. I thank you lord for the beautiful weather. I thank you that My wife and I bought all the supplies we needed. I thank you for the cake the girls made for me. I thank you for all the people who greeted me. I thank you for our health.
I pray for covid-19 and that it will leave this earth. I pray for health for family and friends. I pray lord that the weather tomorrow will not be as bad as what is forecasted. Please lord lower the strength of the storms as it approaches.
Tomorrow is a day we celebrate your resurrection. I thank you lord for the cross and the promises of it. Forgive me of my sins and shortfalls. In Jesus name Amen. PJSLB
