We Feel the Same

Dear Jesus,

It is amazing how much we as humans can take.

This world is so full of heartache, pain, evil and so much negativity, yet there are souls that endure and some how survive.

I think this is a side to humans that you created Lord. A beautiful side. To remain strong and resilient in the face of adversity.

To grow and do positive things while experiencing great pain.

You said that there is nothing that we will experience that many others have not experienced. Although different scenarios, we feel the same.

But you also said that even though this is, you would help us get through these things , so that we can endure and bear them.

Thank you for being that side of us Lord.

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

 

Bring Us Home

Dear Jesus,

I want to say a special prayer right now. I think it is the right time.

My heart goes out to the people caught up in the terror attack in Manchester. There families and friends.

Lord I dont understand why people would go to such lengths to prove a point. Lengths that affect lives and destroy families.

But Lord, you know all, and you see all and you understand everything. You said that all these things would happen and that we should not be alarmed.

Evil and hatred for each other would increase. And with this you are preparing to come back and take us back home. Lord I know that your heart is eager to bring us home.

I pray that in the meantime, keep us strong and committed to you.

In your Name,

Amen

 

Sickness

Dear Jesus,

Sickness is an unwelcome guest that comes and troubles the lives of so many people. 

Lord I’m amazed at how many forms of sickness there are.

It goes to show how rampant evil is in this world and the devil is really looking for all the opportunities he can find to devour people.

Lord I pray that you will protect me and all people who understand that you are here to help us. 

But not only them I pray for those people who are still searching and who may not know you yet.

In your Name,

Amen

What I Am

Dear Jesus,

I read that with the merciful you show yourself merciful, with the blameless you show yourself blameless, with the purified, you show yourself pure and with the crooked you show yourself to seem torturous.

But Lord how can you make yourself seem torturous to people who are crooked if you are good to everyone?

It’s as if you make yourself something you are not.

Is it that, how you are showed to me is dependant on what I do? Or what I am? Or how I am? What?

I’m finding it so hard to understand this verse.

In your Name,

Amen
