Good, Constructive and Noble things

Dear Jesus,

Thank you for making things possible.

You have given us the gift of imagination and thought.

To be able to imagine something and bring it into existence is a miraculous thing.

A little bit of you in us.

But not as powerful as you.

Lord, encourage us to imagine good, constructive and noble things.

In your Name,

Amen

Meaning of Happiness

Dear Jesus,

What is happiness?

How do we get happiness? What do we need to do?

Is it a feeling? Is it something I can hold? Is it something I can’t see?

Why are some considered happy and others not?

Lord this world has so many definitions of happiness. Its hard to understand and determine whether I am really happy or not. 

Thats why I am asking you Lord, because you are wise and you know everything and you know the true meaning of happiness.

In your Name,

Amen

To Become Changed

Dear Jesus,

Thank you for bringing me through another week.

At times its been very difficult to handle. I have nearly lost my cool with people.

I have been left confused as to why people choose to act the way they do.

But Lord, I realise that that is none of my concern, that is none of my business.

I just want to live the life you have given me in the best way.

To become changed each and every day.

In your Name,

Amen

In those Changes

Dear Jesus,

Remind us that change is good. Teach us the benefits of change whether it be good or bad change. 

Show us what we can do in those changes.

I don’t like change. It threatens my way of doing things and it makes me uncomfortable.

It means that I have to show a side of myself that I am completely confident about showing. It means that I will have to start soing something new that I am unfamiliar with.

But Lord, I know that in those moments is where we can really change into extraordinary people. Where we can learn new things about ourselves and the world around us.

In your Name,

Amen

Strong people for you

Dear Jesus,

I thank you for the guides and mentors that you have given me the privilege to meet.

They have wisdom and inspiration that comes from you.

They have helped to shape the person I am today. 

Yes, you are Lord and everything is under your control even our lives. 

But I strongly believe that embracing you as Lord over our lives means to also accept the good assistance that is available to us to help us become strong people for you.

Save us from presumption and putting ourselves into situations that only seek to hinder us.

In your Name,

Amen

Help

Dear Jesus,

Thank you for bringing people to me who help me.

Thank you for giving me strength to ask for help.

But Lord, I strongly believe that we should never feel pressured to ask for help and we should never ask people whom we feel uncomfortable asking for help.

But with that I pray to learn to become someone who others can come to for help and assistance.

In your Name,

Amen

Evolutionary rather than Revolutionary

Dear Jesus,

Living a godly life requires so much patience and diligence. 

Sometimes it is hard to not expect things to happen overnight.

To let things happen evolutionary rather than revolutionary.

To allow ourselves to just grow, learn, make mistakes, fall and having the courage to start again.

It takes a lot of humility and self-resepct.

So far this is what I am learning about life and I am excited for the future.

Thank you Jesus,

In your Name,

Amen
