Day to Day

Dear Jesus,

Its hard to navigate wisely and safely throug the working world without getting burnt in some way.

The pressures of meeting expectations. Carrying a workload. Getting along with work colleagues. Performance. Betrayal. Trust. Decisions.

All these and many more play out so vividly in the working world.

Lord I do not want to be influenced but I want to be an influence. I want to keep my dignitiy above all things and please you only.

Help me through my day to day.

In your Name,

Amen

The Day or The Hour

Dear Jesus,

Yet another reason to be sad Lord.

My heart goes out to the people who lost loved ones and whose lives have been lost this week in the Grenfell Tower Fire

Why so much heartache? Why so much burden Lord? This is almost too much to bear.

Lord you see what is going on. I wonder how you feel about all of this. Lord you know the reasons behind everything.

At this time many are looking for answers. Many are trying to find an explanation to this. Many are angry and confused and hurt.

And although these things may remain a mystery for a while. Lord you are still God. You still sit upon your throne.

Nothing has changed about you and you still desire the best for us all. You love us dearly and want us to be saved. You would do anything to save us.

Lord help us to lean on you and devote ourselves to you.

Because none of us know the day or the hour where it could be the end.

In your Name,

Amen

 

A Pure Appreciation

Dear Jesus,

Thank you for my family. You have shown to me how important family is over the years.

I look back and see how I have treated my family in times when I wasn’t in my right mind.

But these people have never left my side, they are still here and with that I have the opportunity to enjoy better days with them and look at them with a new appreciation. A pure appreciation.

Thank you for the people you bring into our lives who are family to us.

In your Name,

Amen

Take Us There

Dear Jesus,

It was a tough week so far. But it has also been a weekend of peace, family time and decisions.

Sometimes I feel as though time is moving so slow and there is nothing to look forward to.

But Lord you have reassured us that we should not let our hearts be troubled because you are preparing a place for us and you are coming back to take us there.

That is certainly something to look forward to.

In the meantime encourage and inspiire us to enjoy the life that you have blessed us with now and guide us on how we should spend our time.

In your Name,

Amen

 

Strengthen Me

Dear Jesus,

Thank you for helping me make throug this week. I dont know how I have made it.

I feel like I am at the point of giving up. I am certain that whatever is keeping me going is something beyond myself.

The next few weeks are going to be difficult and hard Lord. I am going to feel like giving up and throwing in the towel.

But just like you strengthened me to make it through is the same way you will strengthen me to make it through the rest.

Encourage others in the same way you have for me Lord. And help me to cultivate a taste for you.

In your Name,

Amen

So Kind & So Encouraging

Dear Jesus,

I am fed up. Frustrated. Hurt. Ashamed. Embarrassed. Scared. Worried

I feel everything. These are one of those days that I hate.

I can’t get my head around or get my mind away from what is bothering me so much.

Lord please help me to be strong and hopeful. Give me a little bit of encouragement because if I have ever needed it, it is now.

Thank you for strengthening me over the years. I dont know how I have been able to manage and make it through.

You said that in my weaknesses it is then where your grace and kindness is enough for me to carry on.

I can say that you have helped me Lord. you have been so kind and so encouraging towards me and I thank you.

In your Name,

Amen

In Your Company

Dear Jesus,

My heart is heavy again and in absolute shock at what this society is coming to.

Lord I am asking you to comfort those families who have lost friends and family in the terror events that unfolded in London.

We are truly living in amazing times where evil is increasing more and more.

You said that these things would happen as we approached the end of this world and your return.

If this is happening now I cant imagine what will be for the future. Things are looking more and more dark.

But Lord, I am so thankful that you are the same and constant and your light shines ever more brighter the darker this world gets.

We can trust you and rest assured that we are safe as long as we stay in your company.

In your Name,

Amen
