God, I thank You with all of my heart that Your voice is clear and honest and consistent and we are guaranteed that You speak the truth. There are no mixed messages from You in voice or act so we can rely on this feeling wonderfully calm as an added blessing. You ask us to follow You by speaking and acting in truth and help us, Lord by being increasingly single minded attuned to Your voice alone and pursuing peace and truth. Because we cannot continue mixing truth and untruths in what we say and do and this honours You. And You rush to our aid to help us do just this. thank You. Help us seize the day and establish ourselves rooted and grounded in Your truth. Your blessed truths.
God, I give thanks for the encouraging words of Paul '...see that you excel in the Grace of giving' for I am seeing much more of this. One man who remained anonymous (completely as Christ hopes for)donated a large sum of money to help a cancer stricken woman and what a joy to read of his generosity and what it MEANS for that family as they can use it now to buy 3 month's treatment for her bowel cancer. This man's giving is in line with scripture, Lord and You are so happy for what he has done. Well done says the Lord. I know that You are also JEHOVAH RAPHA, the Lord our healer and I place this woman and all with bowel cancer and all cancers under Your healing Grace and favour. Lord,I rebuke the spirit of cancer and expel it through the power associated with Your name, Jesus and Your Holy blood, now. Heal them by Grace, anoint them with Your Spirit of healing. Thank You.
Lord, we remember too that this Grace in giving is not just in giving money for You know what cash we all have. We give by praying, we give by following Christ's ways, we give by forgiving, we give by being a peace maker and arbitrator, we give by being compassionate, we give by caring for others, we give by remebering those who are estranged from You now and for their loss and sufferings. So, I encourage us believers to pray with compassion for possible new family members to be anointed with Your Holy Spirit as we want them to receive the comfort and hope and so much more that God has given us.
God, I thank You for the excitment of my personal service which began when my sister, Ruth who You sent, gave me a book entitled The Prayer of Jabez which i duly prayed to You offering what I had and You have used what little I had then and have added so much that I accept with thanks in the continuing desire to bring You glory through serving others on Your behalf.
God, You know I hear so many personal prayers on the radio and in churches and from others and You know that I would sincerely like to pray for each and every one but I make this covenant with You now if I may. That I simply say 'I agree' and then my prayer is added to theirs and Your will be done. For You tell us when two or three are together in prayer IN AGREEMENT then the prayer will be powerful indeed. Of course, You hear silent personal prayers too but this offering of prayer in agreement pleases You greatly. Why? Because You told Jesus to TELL us this in the hope that we would come together in prayer agreement and use this gracious offering in Your free gift of prayer.
I love You, Father. I am so thankful and it feels so good to both know AND feel how much You love me and us. How blessed we are. Truly blessed.Amen.
