Thoughts & Practises

Dear Jesus,

I would love to make new friends. 

I would love to learn from others and develop long lasting meaningful friendships.

I understand that in order to do that I have to be prepared to let go of and unlearn the behaviours and thoughts that have stopped me from making the relationships I desire deep down.

Lord, what are the thoughts that I need to let go of and what thoughts and practises do I need to focus my energy on cultivating?

Thank you for what you have helped me do this far.

In your Name,

Amen

Give back to you

Dear Jesus,

The day hasn’t started off on the right foot.

I am on my way to work and some of us our on our way to our jobs, some of us are coming back or will soon be starting.

Although many of us would rather be at home relaxing and doing our own thing including me I am thankful that there is work.

To provide for the nessesaties in life and the pleasures.

And to also give back to you what you have given to us.

In your Name,

Amen

Broke your Heart

Dear Jesus,

Its been a while since (say name) has been gone.

But the memories of her/him are still so strong in my mind.

I can’t believe they are gone.

I remember when Lazarus died, you’d shed tears not because he was gone but because of the distrust everyone had in you. 

It broke your heart.

Lord, although (say name) is gone.

Please help me to trust you through this.

In your Name,

Amen

Singleness

Dear Jesus,

I am single. I have no husband, no wife, no boyfriend, no girlfriend.

I would really like to meet someone, get married, have children of my own.

But now I am single, and you have said that it is good to be content in whatever situation we are in.

To handle our circumstances and deal with them as they are and not how we would wish them to be.

So Lord, help all of us who are single to enjoy our singleness, to experience and learn as much as we can learn in our singleness.

Lord thank you for helping me this far.

In your Name,

Amen

Good things

Dear Jesus,

What does it mean to be strong?

How do I recognise strenght in others and myself?

Lord, how were you strong when you were here? 

You went through so much drama and trouble but at the same time did so many good things. Is that what being strong is?

Doing good things?

Lord, what must I do to be strong like you?

In your Name,

Amen

Justice, Mercy, Faith

Dear Jesus,

When you were here, there was a time when you were really angry with some people.

You were angry at the way we dealt with problems, what we didn’t do and the things we forgot. 

You said that what mattered was justice, mercy and faith.

It was never about tradition and rules and protocol. 

Lord what is justice, mercy and faith? 

In your Name,

Amen

To New Places

Dear Jesus,

Thank you for opening up the way to go out and experience new things.

To meet new people, to start new ventures, to discover and learn new things. 

Thank you for honouring this decision that I have made to change my surroundings and serve you in a new way.

You never stayed in one place when you were here, you always went to new places.

Thats what I will be doing, because I want to grow and I dont want to stay where I am.

In your Name, 

Amen
