Helping & Serving Others

AUTHOR AND FINISHER OF MY FAITH

Dear Jesus,

Thank you so much for being a ready friend to us all.

I have a request; that you will comfort and meet the needs of those that are hurting in their hearts right now.

You are the author and finisher of my faith and you have called me to show and demonstrate my faith to others.

How can I help people who need help? What can I do?

You are a compassionate friend; the same compassion you show to me in my times of difficulties and distress, help me to show the same to others even when they are unloving and unkind.

In your Name,

Amen


 

COURAGE TO REACH OUT TO SOMEONE

Dear Jesus,

Thank you for waking us up this morning.

The devil is going around like roaring lion seeking whom he may devour so give us strength today to overcome anything that comes our way.

To also support others the way you did. To talk, to communicate and have courage to reach out to someone.

Bless my friends, and give them a good day also. Is there anyone that I can help? Guide me to them in your time and wisdom to say the right words.

In your Name,

Amen


 

BE BRAVE AND COURAGEOUS

Dear Jesus,

Thank you for being with us so far in this new year.

Keeping us focused and giving us new ideas.

Sometimes I want to give up and do what I want.

The side that just wants to protect her/himself and be comfy.

Being a christian, is it that we are supposed to be strong, tough, hard and thick skinned?

I find it hard to be those things Lord.

But you told us to be brave and courageous.

Why do I need to be brave and courageous Lord?

Sometimes it takes a lot of bravery to reach out to others. Especially strangers and people who I don’t get along with. Is this why? To really help others.

We need courage and humility.

In your Name,

Amen

ONE LIFE

Dear Jesus,

Thank you for this life. Only one life. 

Life is getting on, the years are growing older and the clock is ticking away.

Please prepare us well. 

My friend asked you to give him something to do for you and you did.

I’m here, please give me something to do for you too?

In your Name,

Amen

TO SHARE

Dear Jesus,

Thank you so much for friends. Friends make life so meaningful.

Thank you for the honor of being a friend. 

You shared what you had with all your friends when you were here. 

That was your mission, to help people.

I imagine that you want us to do the same for others.

Help us to recognise the opportunities you give us to share and to do it knowing that you are watching.

Im so happy, you have helped me to be happy and understand that you love taking care of us all.

In your Name,

Amen

KEEP ALIVE

Dear Jesus,

Thank you for the privilege to do good things for others.

You said we should not get tired of doing the right thing and doing good things for others.

Its so easy to give up and lose our inner strength especially when there is little appreciation.

But you also said that there will be a return, all we need do is keep going, keep alive and keep doing those things you have taught us to do.

That makes me happy and content. 

Thank you Lord.

In your Name,

Amen

GENTLY

Dear Jesus,

You have said that amongst many other things, gentleness is a trait of an individual who is being led by you.

I have seen this week, how ungentle people can be with other people and how ungentle I am.

We are so fragile. 

There are so many influences around us seeking to change us into something you don’t like.

Lord, make us more gentle even when others are not so gentle with us.

Lord, I dont want to break others anymore. I want to treat others gently.

In your Name,

Amen

HELP OR HINDER?

Dear Jesus,

I am grateful for the opportunities you give me to do things for my church.

Things within my abilities but that also challenge my nature and skills.

I know that you have a 100% successful track record for helping people. 

Especially people witb responsibilitiea.

Please help us all in our roles in service to our communities and churches.

Remind me to ask myself the question when I am faced with doing something for someone else, will this help you or hinder you?

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

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
