This is one of those "chain" emails that gets passed around--I copied & pasted f/ my email, so it's nothing I made up or wrote, but I think the words are beautiful & such an enouraging prayer for all of us...
Dear Lord, I thank you for this day. I thank You for my being able to
see and to hear this morning. I'm blessed because You are a forgiving God and an
understanding God. You have done so much for me and You keep on blessing me.
Forgive me this day for everything I have done, said or thought that was not
pleasing to you. I ask now for Your forgiveness.
keep me safe from all danger and harm. Help me to start this day with a new
attitude and plenty of gratitude. Let me make the best of each and every day to
clear my mind so tha t I can hear from
broaden my mind that I can accept all
me not whine and whimper over things I have no control over. Let me continue to
see sin through God's eyes and acknowledge it as evil. And when I sin, let me
repent, and confess w ith my mouth my wrongdoing, and receive the forgiveness of
when this world closes in on me, let me remember Jesus' example -- to slip away
and find a quiet place to pray. It's the best response when I'm pushed beyond my
limits. I know that when I can't pray, You listen to my heart. Continue to use
me to do Your will.
Continue to bless me that I may be a blessing to others. Keep me
strong that I may help the weak. Keep me uplifted that I may have words of
encouragement for others. I pray for those who are lost and can't find their
way. I pray for those who are misjudged and misunderstood. I pray for those who
don't know You intimately. I pray for those who will delete this without sharing
it w ith others. I pray for those who don't believe. But I thank you that I
I believe that God changes people and God changes things. I pray for
all my sisters and brothers. For each and every family member in their
households. I pray for peace, love and joy in their homes that they are out of
debt and all their needs are met.
I pray that every eye that reads this knows there is no problem,
circumstance, or situation greater than God. Every battle is in Your hands for
You to fight. I pray that these words be received into the hearts of every eye
that sees them and every mouth that confesses them willingly..
This is my prayer.
In Jesus' Name, Amen
