Nightly Prayer -12/07/16

Lord, as I sit in between my two daughters as they sleep peacefully this night, I pray lord for their health. I pray lord for wonderful experiences that will strengthen their faith and trust in you. I pray that they will remember you in time when the road is not so straight. I pray for K as she will be in the schools Nativity play. I pray for N as she is getting better and catching up on school work. I pray for J as you walk with her on college. I pray for my wife and thank you for the rock she is in my life. 

I pray lord for all those who are looking for you. I pray for an experience they will never forget. I pray for family, friends, and readers that are suffer lord. Whatever that suffering is, please help them. 

Finally, I pray for myself. I pray for knowledge and compassion. I pray to never boast. I pray to be a mirror of your love. 

In Jesus Name, Amen

Prayer request from A.R.R.

Received this today in the prayer request page.  Please life up P.C. in your prayers.

Please pray for my wife and I. I (have) been wanting another child, but she (has) been afraid/fearful with her high blood pressure (and) that it will be difficult during her pregnancy and put the child at high risk. Keep us in your prayers.

Merry Christmas Family….
God Bless

A.R.R., You will be in all our prayers.  This is a tough one because its praying for what you want and at the same time praying for someone else (in this case your wife) to be comfortable with what you are praying for.  Wanting another child is something i can relate to.  I also know how stressful and worrisome any pregnancy can be.

It is in my heart to pray NOT for your wife to change her mind or for you to receive what you are praying for BUT to pray for complete trust and submittal to the will of God.  The bible teaches us to trust the lord in all and rely on his infinite understanding.  I pray that you trust the Lord in his decision to help you have a child (or not) AND more importantly, I pray that your wife TRUSTS the lord if she does (or does not) get pregnant.

Psalm 84:11 
For the LORD God is our sun and our shield. He gives us grace and glory. The LORD will withhold no good thing from those who do what is right.

Please keep us updated A.R.R. and rest assured that you have brothers and sisters in Christ  that are praying for you and your family.

A Fathers Prayer For His Children

baby-22194_1280

As I sit here on the the edge of my daughters bed here on the beautiful island of Guam, I am aware of your love for me and my family. The quietness of the night with a hint of Jim Brickman playing in the background has set the mood of reflection. I see peace in the eyes of my children. When they talk, I hear happiness and hope. When I ask my kids “who is the one person you love more than mom and dad?” I am proud to hear them say JESUS! You have given them everything they need in life. At such a young age, I can already see you working in them. All the blessings I have coming to me…lord, redirect them to my kids. They are wiser than I ever was or will be. I have wasted many opportunities that you have given me. I promise I will see to it that the kids continue to know where all their blessings come from and teach them to be bold to use it. In Jesus name amen.
