Life is not Guaranteed

Dear Jesus,

I want to say a special prayer for everyone that is travelling at such a time like this.

It is holiday season. The kids are off and families are getting set to go on their holidays.

Lord I want to ask you that you will send your angels to protect us as we set off on our travels wherever we go.

Life is not guaranteed. And anything can happen at any time.

Lord it is is ever more urgent to lean on you and acknowledge you as the one who watches over us and sustains us.

Thank you for your protection and guidance thus far.

And remind us at all times to thank you for everything.

In your Name,

Amen

You Share in our Pains

Dear Jesus,

Death is such a horrible, horrible tragedy to face.

It hurts the people who are alive in such a profound way.

I pray for all the families who are greiving and mourning because they have lost a loved one.

No-one can quite understand the pain of losing someone unless experienced.

It is a paniful feeling; almost like sharing in the experience of death itself.

Lord I ask that you will comfort those families and that this tragedy will not change them in a negative way but that they will look to you knowing that you are even more closer at a time like this.

You share in our pains and our struggles especially death.

In your Name,

Amen

Let Us not Forget

Dear Jesus,

Hearts are still in pain over the lives that have been lost over the past few weeks.

Even though it is in the past, it all has left a deep wound in the hearts of many people especially relatives, children and significant others.

People who are still tryng to heal, cope with life and come to terms with what happened.

No one talks about it anymore, no one is standing up anymore or protesting, complaining, shouting, crying, hurting.

Let us not forget about it Lord. Let us not become the crowd. Let us help those where help is needed.

And please Lord come through for those people who are still in pain. Grow them so that they become great victors and not victims. Grow them to make a solid impact on the world for the rest of their lives.

For you said that in our weaknesses you make us stronger. Although our trials are hard to bear, you help us to bear them.

Thank you.

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

Plentiful & Rich

Dear Jesus,

I have a special prayer for some very important people in my life.

My mother and my father. You gave some  very important instructions about the mother father relationship.

You also demonstrated that when you were here. You said how important it is to honour them and respect them so that our days would be long, plentiful and rich.

How simple an instruction but yet how vital it is for life.

Lord I know this to be true because I have seen famlies torn apart because of this simple instruction not being obeyed.

Lord help us in this.

In your Name,

Amen

Fixed on You

Dear Jesus,

I want to say a special prayer for my aunt.

She is going through a difficult time atm. 

She is worried about alot of things. Give her some peace at this time. Keep her mind fixed on how much of a loving and caring father you are.

I will be visiting her very soon. I am looking forward to seeing her.

Help me to be a source of support to her. Help me forget about the stresses of my own life to be a caring friend to her and enjoy the time spent with her.

In your Name,

Amen
