This Union

Dear Jesus,

I want to let you know about something that has been on my mind for a while.

I am not going to worry about it.

This relationship that I have formed with (name), please show us that you have approved of this union.

How do we know that you have approved?

What can we learn from this? How do you desire us to be towards each other?

In your Name,

Amen

Rewards of Forgiveness

Dear Jesus,

Its the end of the day.

Thank you for the experience.

I’ve had a good time taking in all the events of the day.

Please forgive me and help me to forgive others who have wronged me.

The rewards of forgiveness are valuable. Harmony, Love, Peace, Joy, Thankfulness. A sound mind. A positive mind.

You said that I must first clean out the inside of my cup first? Help me to do that Lord.

In your Name,

Amen

Elevate and Build him up

Dear Jesus,

My son needs your help. He is a young boy with feelings.

I can never know completely what they are but you know and you know how to help him deal with them.

Now I know he needs strength and courage.

I am so proud and inspired by him.

Continue to bless his life.

Give me the wisdom and understanding to say words that will elevate and build him up.

In your Name,

Amen

A Congenial Spouse

Dear Jesus,

Thank you for being our God, our father, our saviour from death, heartache, destruction, guilt, everything that sin brings.

Thank you for your love, that we don’t deserve.

For this love, that you are, you deserve all the praises.

I have a personal request.

Your word says that a congenial spouse comes straight from you.

If and whoever you wish to unite any of us with in marriage and life, give us the wisdom to know he/she is right for us.

Help us all to become suitable people. Suitable in your eyes.

Whatever you desire to teach us, help us to understand what we are being taught.

In your Name,

Amen

The Sparkle

Dear Jesus,

I want to say how much I adore and look up to you.

You are so strong, intelligent, wise and so kind.

Thank you for the sparkle in my eyes.

I really believe this, that you show yourself through your children in the eyes.

Whenever I see that sparkle in someones eyes I see you.

And I’ve seen a lot of people with it, so thank you for protecting and being with us all.

In your Name,

Amen

Whatever is Worthy of Praise

Dear Jesus,

I don’t really know what to say to you right about now.

I’m lost for the right words.

Please read my heart. Its saying a lot.

So many concerns, worries and anxieties.

I’m learning that its ok to have these emotions.

You said that you remember that we are just human, dust of the earth, fragile.

But you have also told us to not be afraid, to trust in you and not to worry about tomorrow.

To focus on lovely things, good reports and whatever is worthy of praise and attention.

I believe that when we do these things we will experience your peace.

In your Name,

Amen

To Be with You

Dear Jesus,

Daddy, dad, comforter, teacher, guide, protecter, friend, family.

Im looking forward to spending time with my family.

My church family.

Im so excited.

I feel like this is how you desire me to feel about you coming back for us.

To be ready, to be excited, to want you, to be with you.

Despite the difficulties, to always be in connection with you.

To always seek your counsel in trouble and endure.

To do things that represent your glory and seek your presence even when I feel like I don’t deserve it.

To come boldly to your throne.

In your Name,

Amen
