Work with a Purpose

Dear Jesus,

Thank you for providing work and the strength to carry out that work.

But also thank you for rest. Rest is so much more sweeter after a hard days work.

You talked alot about hard work in the bible. You talked about the ant how they work and save to provide.

Help us to be like that, not just to work but to work with a purpose and to put what what we recieve to good use.

In your Name,

Amen

Help us to remember

Dear Jesus,

This time is a special time right now for many people.

Its a time where we remember the sacrifice you made and the message you came to share with us.

Its a time where we can really appreciate you, who you are and all the good things you do for and in us.

You loved to do things that encouraged others to remember.

Such things like, the last supper and the rainbow our heavenly father put in the sky to tell us he would never flood the earth again. 

All these things help us to remember.

Thank you for this time.

In your Name,

Amen

Serve Others and Be Encouraged

Dear Jesus,

Its a privilege to be able to encourage others with the opportunities we are given.

Not only are others encouraged but we ourselves are equally encouraged.

You said that it is good to give rather than recieve because when we give we will get back more than what we expected. More than what we think.

Thank you Jesus.

I would like to do more things like this where I can serve others and be encouraged.

In your Name,

Amen

Important things

Dear Jesus,

It is really good that we can go out, work and earn a wage.

Because it gives us the opportunity to do useful things with the money that we earn.

Things like, giving back to others in need, buying things that will help us and most of all giving back to you.

Gives us the wisdom on how to manage our money wisely so that all these good things don’t get forgotten.

For I know it is teaching me everytime not to hold on too tightly to my money, to put the important things first and to practise generosity. 

In your Name,

Amen

So much in Life

Dear Jesus,
Thank you for a new day. A refreshing new day.

Thank you for the blessings of this weekend and the good memories that I know I can look forward to making again and again.

There is so much in life that we can be thankful for.

Even if it is only a small thing, it is something.

You said that in all things, all situations we should give thanks.

That tells me Lord that it is possible, even when we are in not so pleasant situations to give thanks.

Thank you.

In your Name,

Amen

Make Friends

Dear Jesus,

Thank you for friends.

Thank you for the privilege to make friends and the process it takes to get to know someone.

Its different to knowing family. It takes intimacy, attention, time and vulnerability.

I have made friendships with your help. Many long lasting friendships have been made with your help.

When you were here you made close friendships with many people.

Teach us how to make friends.

In your Name,

Amen
