Bring Us Home

Dear Jesus,

I want to say a special prayer right now. I think it is the right time.

My heart goes out to the people caught up in the terror attack in Manchester. There families and friends.

Lord I dont understand why people would go to such lengths to prove a point. Lengths that affect lives and destroy families.

But Lord, you know all, and you see all and you understand everything. You said that all these things would happen and that we should not be alarmed.

Evil and hatred for each other would increase. And with this you are preparing to come back and take us back home. Lord I know that your heart is eager to bring us home.

I pray that in the meantime, keep us strong and committed to you.

In your Name,

Amen

 

A Blessing Waiting

Dear Jesus,

You never cease to amaze me. You are in control and everything you do is always for a reason.

Sometimes its hard to understand the situations I find myself in and its hard to navigate through and stay committed to my responsibilities.

But you Lord make it so clear that behind every experience there is purpose and you need us to be strong so that we can be used by you.

Thank you for encouraging me and keeping me committed to you even though it feels like a long hard slug.

Because in the end there is always a blessing waiting.

Thank you.

In your Name,

Amen

Safe & Sound

Dear Jesus,

Life is full of surprises. Noone knows what one experience will hold to the next.

People are different, attitudes and beliefs are different.

Where I am now is what I am used to, what I have come to adjust to and conform to.

Looking back I never knew I would be right here in this moment.

Thank you Lord for being with us every step of the way. And thank you for guiding us and teaching us through each and every moment.

Lifes journey is full of so many complexities but with you we can take one day at a time safe and sound.

In your Name,

Amen

Keep Looking & Searching

Dear Jesus,

You said to us that we should not worry because tomorrow has enough worries of its own.

But instead we should keep looking and searching for the things that are of you and you will take care of the rest.

I worry alot about so many things. About my job, about my money, about where I am heading.

I am so glad that you desire us to make that effort, to discover and go to the place where you are. You dont desire us to worry or to be scared but to be happy and at peace and enjoy learning of you.

I am so glad that you never stop encouraging us to do just that.

Reveal to us what your all about.

In your Name,

Amen

What Belongs to You

Dear Jesus,

It has been a long while since we spoke. It has been a long while since we sat down and talked to each other about life.

I am sorry I have neglected you for so long and I see in such a short time how that can impact so many things.

I have watched myself become more impatient, less loving, angry, complain, tempted and sad.

I am ready to give back to you what belongs to you and that is my time and my heart.

Forgive me and help me Lord.

In your Name,

Amen

Carry on & Continue

Dear Jesus,

As the years go by you continue to reveal what is important in this life.

You continue to uncover revelations and insights.

Things that help us see life for what it really is.

As we grow and learn my prayer is that we will never give up the search for meanin and purpose kn our lives.

That although we may fall behind at times and waver we will always look to you as the one who will give us new strength and new perspective to carry on and continue.

In your Name,

Amen

Sinful addiction

Dear Jesus,

I have an addiction. It is a sinful addiction and I desperately need your help to come out of this.

No matter how much I try to justify my actions I know deep down your heart is breaking.

I feel controlled and imprisoned struggling to break free. 

I am confused and dont know what to do. Each time I feel more guilty and ashamed.

Please help me to stop.

In your Name,

Amen
