A True Friend

Dear Jesus,

Thank you for blessing me.

Thank you for being so generous and opening your doors to all that you have.

I am very blessed to know you and to even have known you.

Thank you for always being there for me during my lowest points. 

I can say that you are a true friend. 

Lord be with those people who feel like they don’t have any friends.

Give them that sense of security and calmness that they are not alone and that there is someone out there who is supporting them.

In your Name,

Amen

A Message to you All

A Message to You All

Some of you may have noticed that I hadn’t posted any prayers for the past couple of days.

Something happened that meant I needed to take a break and really gain a little bit of perspective and think about why I am doing the things I am doing.

Its been a very eye-opening few days for me and God never stops helping me learn and realise that I am human, weak and very prone to failure. 

And for this I am thankful to him for always helping me see things, it really does help to keep my focus on him, on making him the priority.

So this is my prayer for those people who are struggling with any kind of issue be it guilt, depression, confusion, shame, loneliness etc. In all these things God always has something he wants you to see and understand that will always be for your good.

Thank you for your understanding and God willing I will resume daily prayers as usual.

Sex

Dear Jesus,

Lord I want talk about a sensitive subject.

I want to talk about sex.

Lord, you know the challenges many of us face when it comes to sex. Especially for people who are single.

Lord what are your views on the subject?

What do you think about sex? Is it ok to kiss? Is it ok to foreplay? Is it ok to do these things with my friend?

Lord you know each any one of our thresholds and what we can handle.

So please help us to distingiush between what is ok and what not ok.

Thank you.

In your Name,

Amen

The…Woman I can be

Dear Jesus,

Being a woman comes with its joys and its stresses.

A whole new world of burdens and responsibilities. 

But Lord, you are helping me to realise how important these burdens are and that it is a special work you have given women to do.

To be able to handle the ups and downs of life and problem solve and raise a family.

Help us women to be proud and live our roles confidently and with gladness.

I am proud to be a woman and glad that you are helping me to grow into the best woman I can be.

Thank you.

In your Name,

Amen

Respectable and Honourable

Dear Jesus,

Encourage my family. They have high ambitions, desires and goals. Noble ones.

Encourage them and give them success in every good thing that they set their hearts on.

Make it successful.

Help them to plan and know their skills and talents and use them wisely.

Build up their confidence and grow them into respectable and honourable men and women.

In your Name,

Amen

Come closer to me

Dear Jesus,

You gave me clear instructions to make an effort to get close to you. To come near to you.

I am far away from you right now and I am struggling to get closer to you.

But Lord although it is really difficult you also promised that as I make those steps to know you, to talk to you and reach out to you, you will come closer to me.

Wow! Thank you Lord for this. 

In your Name,

Amen

Good ground

Dear Jesus,

You talked alot about sowing seeds and farming and plants.

You told stories about these things? Why?

You talked about all the different kinds of soils and what happens when seeds are planted in them.

You said the soil is like us. But what kind of soil am I? 

What does it take to be good soil where seeds are planted and everything begins to grow? Water? Sunlight? Air?

Lord help us to understand what we need.

In your Name,

Amen
