[quote style=”2″]”I rise before dawn and cry for help; I have put my hope in your word. My eyes stay open through the watches of the night, that I may meditate on your promises.” Psalm 119:147[/quote]
There are times during our lives when all we seem to be able to do is rise before dawn and cry out to God for help. We are in a situation where there is nothing that we can do – we have run out of options. God’s intervention is our only hope – our only solution. These are actually good times. When we come to the end of ourselves, that is when God does his best work.
Heavenly Father, I pray for everyone who is calling out to You desperate for Your help and assistance. I pray that You will not tarry in turning their situation around. I pray that You will be glorified in the miracles that You do each and every day on this earth. I pray this in the name of Jesus, Amen.

When we serve others that our less fortunate than ourselves, we are, in fact, serving God. We are being His hands and feet on this earth. We are showing His heart, His concern, His love.

[quote style=”2″]”His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!'” Matthew 25:23[/quote]
God has many things for each us to accomplish in our lifetimes, but He needs to know that we can be faithful in the small things that He gives us to do each day before He gives us bigger things to do. In other words, if He cannot trust you to pray with your next door neighbor who is ill, how can He expand your ministry to a bigger arena. Can God trust you? Are you faithful? Are you dependable? Will you hear at the end of your life “Well done good and faithful servant.
Heavenly Father, I pray that You will help us to faithfully perform every task that You assign us. I pray that You will increase our sphere of influence and our ministries and that at the end of our lives we will all hear “Well done, good and faithful servant.” I pray this in the name of Jesus, Amen.Inflatable Air Track
[quote style=”2″]”Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” Mattthew 7:1-2[/quote]
Jesus tells us to examine our own motives and conduct instead of judging others. The traits that bother us in others are often the habits we dislike in ourselves. Our bad habits and behavior patterns are the very ones that we most want to change in others. Do you find it easy to magnify others’ faults while excusing your own? If you are ready to criticize someone, check to see if you deserve the same criticism. Judge yourself first and then lovingly forgive and help your neighbor.
Heavenly Father, I pray that you will be break the judgmental spirit in each of us. I pray that we will look at our own faults and bad habits and work on changing those with Your help rather than pointing a finger at our neighbor. I pray that we will be quicker to give a kind word rather than a critical one. I pray this in the name of Jesus, Amen.

Do you have a desire to follow God’s ways? It all starts there. First, with the knowledge that God is good and upright and that He wants to instruct us in the right way. The second is the desire to follow His ways. We need God’s help to live according to His ways. We simply do not have the ability to do what is right without His help.龙鲨乐园

[quote style=”2″]”If a man owns a hundred sheep, and one of them wanders away, will he not leave the ninety-nine on the hills and go to look for the one that wandered off? And if he finds it, I tell you the truth, he is happier about that one sheep than about the ninety-nine that did not wander off. In the same way your Father in heaven is not willing that any of these little ones should be lost.” Matthew 18:12-14[/quote]
Just as a shepherd will go after one of his herd that has wandered away, so God runs after each of us who have wandered off. He wants each of us to be in a personal relationship with Him because that is why He created us. He chases after us with his unconditional love for us. Many times we just don't see that until we are caught. Then we can look back and see this to be true.
Heavenly Father, I pray for every one who has wandered off. I pray that they will come to understand Your great love for them and Your desire to be in relationship with them. We pray that the lost will be found and the unsaved will be saved. I pray this in the name of Jesus, Amen.

God’s Word does not tell us that we shouldn’t feel angry, but it warns us to handle our anger properly. If our anger is vented thoughtlessly, our anger can hurt others and destroy relationships. If is bottled up, it can cause us to become bitter and destroy us from within. We need God’s help in learning to properly handle our anger immediately and in the proper manner.

Aren't you glad that God is not like us – He does not lie and does not change His mind. When He says He will do something, You can count on it being done.

We are God’s children!

We want each of you to show this same diligence to the very end, in order to make your hope sure.

I thank you for your patience with each of us as we journey through life. I pray this in the name of Jesus, Amen.
[quote style=”2″]”When tempted, no one should say, 'God is tempting me.' For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does He tempt anyone; but each one is tempted when, by his own evil desire, he is dragged away and enticed. Then after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown gives birth to death. James l:13-15 [/quote] God never tempts us. All sin starts with a thought in the mind – a temptation. Let's take the sin of adultery. It starts with a thought about someone other than your spouse. Instead of the thought being prayed about and pushed aside, the thought is acted upon and then sin and a big mess for your family has taken hold. The adultery would not have occurred if the thought had been dealt with when it was still a thought before it became an act of betrayal.
Heavenly Father, I pray that You will give each of us the strength to overcome the temptations in our lives whether these temptations are to shout when we shouldn't, have too much to eat or drink, take drugs, gamble away our family's income or act inappropriately and against your commandements. I pray that You will help us guard our mind and our thoughts. I pray this in the name of Jesus, Amen.
