Heavenly Father,

I thank you for this morning.  I thank you for waking me up today and granting me another day to live my life for you.  I am trying Lord but i am human and make many mistakes.

Lord, i ask for clarity as you speak to me today.  I pray lord for boldness in my actions and deeds.  I pray lord that i share my faith in the right way when the moment presents itself.  I pray that i treat everyone with LOVE.  I thank you lord for the realization that i am no perfect and i am in no position to judge anyone.  My job is to show your LOVE and in doing so, i am showing you to the world.

I pray for my family and friends.  I pray lord for a selfless heart.  I pray lord that i dont count the times people have been there for me but count the times that you have allowed me to be there for them.

Finally, I pray for every people who reads this, friend or not, beliver or not.  I pray lord that you show yourself to them so that they may see that a personal relationship is wiating for those who reach out.

In Jesus Name…AMEN

Strategic Role of Prayer

I found this on my phone and to be honest, I don’t know where it’s from. I could of written it, it could of been a lecture at a church, school, or seminar. I do know that it’s message is powerful and is something that can benefit someone out there. God Bless. PJSLB

The Strategic Role of Prayer

Luke 6:12-13

“One of those days Jesus went out to a mountainside to pray, and spent the night praying to God. When morning came he called his disciples to him and chose twelve of them, whom he also designated apostles:”

Where does our strategic direction come from?

Where do we receive counsel for the most important decisions that we make?

Jesus spent the night praying to God. Prayer was two-way communication for Jesus, where the Father provided a relationship in which Jesus could process his decisions and receive counsel.

Are we fully utilizing the potential of prayer to sort through our issues and receive God’s counsel and perspective?

The most important decisions leaders make concern the people with whom they will chose to surround themselves. Prayer is one of the most under-utilized resources God has given us for discernment, decision making and strategic planning.

Lord Jesus, I desire a deeper level of dependency on you through prayer. There are more strategic decisions that need your insight, direction and counsel. Thank you for the Holy Spirit and your invitation to pray.

Elementary chapel at First Presbyterian Dayschool

Today, my youngest and her class got to lead chapel today at FPD. It was awesome to see kids being able to learn about Christ in a safe and loving environment. My family is grateful for the blessing that is FPD. PJSLB

The verse they were reciting is John 19:24

They said therefore among themselves, Let us not rend it, but cast lots for it, whose it shall be: that the scripture might be fulfilled, which saith, They parted my raiment among them, and for my vesture they did cast lots. These things therefore the soldiers did.
