April 30, 2012 7:02 PM by Diane

For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness, righteousness, and truth) finding out what is acceptable to the Lord. Ephesians 5:8-10.

Father God, Thank you that through Jesus we can walk as children of light. Let our lives reflect the fruit of the Spirit. Mature us so Your goodness, righteousness, and truth become who and how we are. Lord, our goal is to know what is acceptable to You in all our decisions and actions. Amen.

Monday AM Prayer Focus: We Are Ambassadors

April 29, 2012 9:36 PM by Diane

Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ's behalf, be reconciled to God. For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him. 2 Corinthians 5:20-21.

Dear God, How great a salvation You have given us! Thank you for Your reconciliation. You made us Your ambassadors. Help us to represent You well. Let our words, actions, and thoughts reflect Your goodness and mercy in our lives. Let our homes be Your embassy; a dwelling dedicated to You. Let us never forget that wherever we go and whatever we do, we represent You to others. May Your love shine forth from our hearts. Amen.

Blessed is a man who perserveres under trial; for once he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the LORD has promised to those who love Him. James 1:12NASB


If you fall to pieces in a crisis there wasn't much to you in the first place. Proverb24:10 Message


Heavenly Father, I thank you that our inner man is strengthened by Your Spirit. Jesus, I thank you for your faithfulness to be our rock, and go deeper than our self; to sustain us under every trial we have, we are, or we will encounter. You are our King and our glory is in you the LORD of Hosts. We are yours. Thank you for our peace, we lovingly trust you.

April 24, 2012 10:57 PM by Roger

 

"The end of all things is at hand; therefore, be of sound judgment and sober for the purpose of prayer.  Above all, keep fervent in your love for one another, because love covers a multitude of sins.  Be hospitable to one another without complaint.  As each one has received a gift, employ it in serving one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.  Whoever speaks, as it were, the utterances of God; whoever serves, as by the strength which God supplies; so that in all things God may be glorified throught Jesus Christ, to whom belongs the glory and dominion forever and ever.  Amen."

Thursday AM Prayer Focus - Don't be anxious for your life

April 18, 2012 10:06 PM by Roger

Luke 12:29-34,  "And do not seek what you shall eat, and what you shall drink, and do not keep worrying. For all these things the nations (peoples) of the world eagerly seek; but your Father knows that you need these things.  But seek for His kingdom, and these things shall be added to you.  Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has chosen gladly to give you the kingdom.  Sell your possessions and give to charity; make yourselves purses which do not wear out, an unfailing treasure in heaven, where no thief comes near, nor moth destroys.  For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also."

Tuesday AM Prayer Focus: The Father's Love

April 16, 2012 10:33 PM by Diane

What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? Romans 8:31-32.

Father in heaven, thank you that You are for us. Thank you that You sent Jesus to die in our place, taking our punishment upon Himself so we could be reunited with You. Thank you that You also bless our lives here on earth. Help us to have grateful hearts and live a life dedicated to You. Amen.
